Travel trivia: Where is Sarajevo?

Posted on January 8th, 2011 by Laura Byrne Paquet in Travel Trivia

The Olympic city of Sarajevo is now which nation’s capital?

  • Bosnia-Herzegovina
  • Croatia
  • Serbia
  • Slovenia

Think you know the answer? Send it to me as a comment at the bottom of this post. At the end of the week, I’ll draw one name from all the people who answered correctly, and that person will receive this week’s prize: a jazzy water bottle from Tourism New Brunswick.

Come back tomorrow for another travel trivia question and another chance to win the water bottle! And if you can’t wait until then for your trivia fix, check out my husband Paul’s trivia site,

This contest closes at 5:00pm EST on Friday, January 14, 2011.

Disclosure: The water bottle was provided by Tourism New Brunswick.

    Bosnia-Herzegovina, where 3 cultures meet and live in peace and harmony. At least that is what the 1984 Olympic propaganda said.

      Thanks so much for being such a keen player, Deborah! I should have been clearer in the rules for the contest (I’ve clarified them for this week’s game), but each contestant can only submit one answer per question. But there’s a new question every day, so please come back daily and try your luck!

  36. Veronica Garrett

    The answer is Bosnia-Herzegovina.

  37. susan smoaks
