Join Reference Librarian Jeff Klapes, ‘The Traveling Librarian’ for a series of three armchair traveler’s journeys through Serbia and Bosnia this winter. Sign up for any or all of these programs at the links below.

First up is northern Serbia, starting the Belgrade, the cosmopolitan capital on the Danube, and also visiting some of the beautiful towns, monasteries, and fortresses in the rich agricultural plains to the north as you approach Hungary. In particular, we’ll stop at Novi Sad and Subotica, historic towns with a wealth of Art Nouveau and Baroque architecture.

The second program focuses on Sarajevo and northeastern Bosnia. Sarajevo has emerged as a popular travel destination two decades after the brutal wars that broke up Yugoslavia. We’ll also visit Srebrenica, site of one of the war’s most tragic massacres, and Višegrad, on the Serbian border, known for its spectacular historic Ottoman stone bridge.

The final program is on southern Bosnia, focusing on the lovely medieval town of Mostar, with its historic bridge, and also exploring the rural mountain scenery in that part of the country.
