Thinking of organizing a trip to Pale, Bosnia Herzegovina and bringing your family along? If you are, you’re probably wondering whether or not Pale is a good destination for a family location in the first place!
Let’s face it, although Bosnia does have a decent tourism industry it has suffered as a result of the troubles they had in the 90s. That being said – it is over now, but is Pale really a good place to take your family? Is it worth the trip to begin with?
Something for Everyone in Pale
One thing that Pale definitely has going for it is the diversity of its tourist attractions. Unlike other destinations, if you were to visit Pale you can really choose from a variety of activities – some of which are extremely family oriented.
For starters, there are the ski slopes. Chances are your kids would absolutely love to give this a go, and if you happen to be a skier yourself – great! Otherwise you could learn along with them on one of the many beginner slopes that are available on the Jahorina mountain.
Who knows, your family might actually get good enough to graduate to one of the more intermediate slopes by the time your vacation is over!
On top of that, you could also visit the Orlovaca cave in between your ski trips and marvel at the beauty of nature while also soaking in a bit of history. If your kids are adventurous in nature (which most kids are!) they’re bound to cherish the chance to get inside a cave, especially with the prospect of seeing the skeletal remains of cave bears!
If your family enjoys the great outdoors, hiking is another option too. There are several mountain trails that you can choose from, and you’ll find that some even can make for a pretty challenging hike.
Others tend to be milder in nature, but offer spectacular views of nature in all its splendor.
At the end of the day, you should be starting to see that despite its troubled history, Pale has recovered well and is now once again a thriving town that has a lot to offer its visitors.
Even if you want to visit it just for the chance to get out of the city and travel to someplace quiet, natural, and peaceful – Pale is a great destination.
So why not start planning your family vacation now? From the activities we’ve gone over you should have a good idea of what you feel your family could enjoy, so start checking out hotels and other places to stay around Pale!
Remember – this is one town that truly does have something to offer every single one of its visitors!
