2. Sarajevo, Bosnia, and Herzegovina.
Sarajevo is a city surrounded by the Olympic mountains and rich in history (Franz Ferdinand was shot there, which marked the beginning of the First World War). A mixture of west and east and a strong influence of the Ottoman Empire - the city offers tourists cathedrals, mosques, and museums.
