"I’ve came from the United States. I had never lived abroad before I began the masters program in International Law at AUBiH so, at first, I didn’t know what to expect. Despite my reservations, studying in Bosnia-Herzegovina turned out to be the greatest adventure I’ve ever had! Not only did I learn from great Bosnian and American professors in the classroom, life outside the classroom challenged my worldview and taught me so much about the amazing diversity of culture this world holds. My year in Sarajevo is one I’ll always cherish and one I wish I could relive over and over again!"
The Huffington Post ranks Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) as one of the top 10 of the world’s most beautiful cities to visit in 2015/16. The New York Times describes Sarajevo as a beautiful, cosmopolitan, worldly city that will first enchant you with its physical beauty, but it is the people who will make you fall in love with it.
Throughout its history, Sarajevo has attracted worldwide attention several times: In 1914 it was the site of the assassination that sparked World War I, in 1984 it became the host city of the Winter Olympics and in 1992-95 it became known as the location of the longest city siege in modern history. Having witnessed mankind’s capacity for violence, Sarajevo showed a remarkable capacity to recover. Nowadays, Sarajevo is cosmopolitan European capital with a unique Eastern twist that is a delight to visit. People are very friendly and the city ranks as one of the safest in southeastern Europe. A walk through the streets of Sarajevo is a walk through the past. From the oriental Ottoman quarters lined with sweet shops, café's and handicraft workshops, to the administrative and cultural center of Austro-Hungarian times, Sarajevo encompasses the very best of both worlds. It is often called the “Jerusalem of Europe” due to its traditional religious diversity, with adherents of Islam, Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Judaism coexisting there for centuries. Sarajevo stays in the hearts of its visitors as a city of stunningly beautiful landscapes, unassuming human warmth, turbulent history and clashes of religion and culture.
