Halal Tourism in Sarajevo and Bosnia-Herzegovina
The Halal Tourism is becoming an ever-increasing branch in Bosnia-Herzegovina, as it grows into a more and more popular destination for tourists from Muslim countries, or Muslims living in the rest of the World. Bosnian Agency for Halal Quality Certification (https://www.halal.ba/index.php/en/) lists on its pages both the manufacturers, products, and services that acquired the Halal Certificate, but also those who have lost it for any reason. It should be noted how in the areas of Bosnia-Herzegovina with Bosniak/Moslem majority, most restaurants, cafes or sweet shops do offer Halal food, even if they don’t display the full Halal Certificate. The reason is simple – they do serve alcoholic drinks too, so it’s impossible to obtain the Certificate.
