Air Serbia » Er Srbija | 17 Winter Idyll on Jahorina Jahorina is an Olympic mountain and one of the most modern mountain centres. It is located at the heart of the Balkans, near the Bosnia-Herzegovina capital of Sarajevo. Its great advantage is the close proximity of this major city and an international airport, which are located just a 30-minute drive from this mountain centre. This mountain’s highest peak, Ogorjelica (1,916 metres above sea level), is located in a spot that’s influenced by Mediterranean and continental climates, which creates conditions ensuring many snowy days. Jahorina can boast of its firstclass alpine and Nordic trails for day or night skiing. These trails are suitable for both novice skiers and lovers of more extreme skiing. Also standing out is the panoramic gondola or six-seat chair lift, while this mountain is arranged to meet the standards of world ski resorts. Apart from trails for winter sports, Jahorina also has outstanding hiking and cycling trails, as well as panoramic cable car and gondola rides, paragliding, paintball, sports courts, swimming pools and wellness & spa centres, quad driving and one of the longest mountain bobsleigh runs in Europe (Alpine coaster). Skiers will certainly enjoy Jahorina more than ever this year, thanks to its perfectly prepared trails. This year’s guests are awaited by a new trail that’s around 1,000 metres long. Apart from the Poljica trail that’s already completely illuminated, visitors will have at their disposal another illuminated trail for night skiing, but also an expanded Olympic Bar, which is the most popular hospitality facility at the top of the mountain. Jahorina pays the greatest attention to children and novice skiers, and obstacle courses have been prepared for them on the Poljica trail and in the Heavenly Valley [Rajska dolina], while the instructors of the Jahorina Olympic Centre’s ski school can show everyone, in an interesting way, how easy it is to become a skier or improve one’s skiing skills.
