Yugoslavia was a country started in 1943 at the end of WWII. The country split up in 1992 after internal ethnic troubles persistant and the area was at war. I have had the opportunity to visit a couple of locations from the former Yugoslavia. Zagreb, and Sarajevo.
In 1984 the town of Sarajevo hosted the winter olympics. On one of my free days, some colleagues and I headed to the Olympic resort. Located just outside the city, we had to drive up the mountain to enjoy the snow capped mountains. Since the end of the war, sarajevo has been struggling to get tourist back in their country, so we were heading north to see what there was to offer. Sarajevo itself was in various stages of rebuilding and during the civil war, was the center of fighting for much of the time. I believe the city was under siege for a couple of years.
Overall we had a wonderful time of fun and fellowship. I was able to see some really cool sites and crash a snowmobile.
The A to Z challenge is coming to an end. Keep up the blogging even after the challenge. I have had a great time and look forward to following new people until the next A to Z.
