Considering first trip to Croatia - new unrest in Sarajevo

We are in the midst of planning a trip to Italy the latter

part of May and considering adding on about 8 days in

Croatia (never been there before).

Just read article in the paper about the unrest in Sarajevo

saying it is the worst since the war in 92-95

and it sounds like it could spread.

Thoughts?

I don' see how that will be a problem unless you are planning on going to Sarajevo....no worries in Croatia!

The Sarajevo thing was also blown way out of proportion, local people with rightful gripe against politicians who are corupt and only thinking about increasing their own wallets, not giving a damn about the people!!

Hmm come to think of it, we may as well not go anywhere as that just about describes every country's politicians in the world!!

Sarajevo is in Bosnia, not in Croatia; except for the fact that once - more than 20 years ago now - they were both part of Yugoslavia, there are absolutely no political or otherwise parallels to be drawn between those two countries; in addition, croatia is member of the european union (fun fact: at the time it joined, it had a better living standard than SEVERAL other EU member states); you should not be in the least bit concerned and should go ahead planning your trip
