The prominent US newspaper Huffington Post placed Sarajevo second among ten most beautiful cities in the world.
The article states that Sarajevo as the capital and the biggest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina possesses dreamlike authenticity and that it is located at the foot of the mountains along the River Miljacka. It is said that it is full of beautiful mosques, churches and historical architecture, as well as local shops which make and sell varied products.
What makes this city extremely unique is the evidence of past wars that remains. Shells of buildings stand where bombs went off in or near them and monuments that had been erected since the war have been damaged by opposing sides.
It states that only Zanzibar in Tanzania is more beautiful than Sarajevo and recommended to their readers to visit these magnificent cities.
Beside Bosnian and Herzegovinian capital, the ten most beautiful cities include: Zanzibar in Tanzania, Florence in Italy, Seville in Spain, Prague in Czech Republic, Icelandic Reykjavik, Chiang Mai in Thailand, New York, Milan in Italy and Paris, France.
