Bosnia hasn't topped any luxury travel lists lately, as far as we are aware, and it likely hasn't featured in a great deal of holiday-maker's plans over the past twenty years, since its war officially ended. But all that might be about to change... 

After a concerted push towards driving investment by the Bosnian foreign ministry, which targeted the UAE, a Dubai-based construction company is reportedly planning to build a luxury resort worth $2.6 billion on a mountain near Sarajevo in Bosnia. 

The former Winter Olympics (1984) village in a small town in Trnovo, has been chosen for its stunning landscapes and fresh mountain air, and is set to become a luxury ski resort, with construction start soon. 

"I had the chance to sign something that will make history in this small community and I am overwhelmed with happiness," the provincial mayor Berilo said of the new development plans.
