The forum is here

The forum feature was added to this site. The reason for it was I won’t be able to post as much as I like and I don’t have the most up-to-date, useful, and interesting information to add to this website as I don’t live in Sarajevo nor plan to return anytime soon. 

The forum, thus, will be a place for readers to participate, share their wisdom, and recommend tips.

And that’s it for now.
