On the site of today’s hotel “Bistrica”, in 1960 “Villa Bistrica” was built, which was better known as “Villa of the Executive Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina”. Originally, the villa was built out of stone with 44 beds in double rooms and 4 suites. The villa was known for its disco club, about which adventures are still retold today. It was burned down in 1974, and 10 years later, for the needs of the XIV Winter Olympic Games, a modern hotel “Bistrica” was built, categorized as a 4 stars hotel. The hotel is named after the eponymous river Bistrica, whose source is at the foot of Mount Jahorina.
At the most beautiful lookout point of the mountain, between the Jahorina peaks and the picturesque valley of the river Prača, 1620 meters above the sea lays the hotel “Bistrica”. Recently, the owner of this hotel facility became ZTC “Banja Vrućica” a.d. which has a long tradition in the field of tourism, and has extensive experience in working with guests and meeting their needs.
The menu represents a special combination of dishes from national and regional cuisine.
Gastronomic pleasure with grilled and sač specialties is complemented by a rich selection of salads, desserts, cheeses, as well as a rich offer of local drinks, wines, etc.
Gastro-themed evenings and Jahorina dinners, as well as barbecues are a pleasure for even the greatest gourmets.
For all beginner skiers accommodated in the hotel “Bistrica”, the ski school will be run by instructors from the Olympic Center.
The instructors of the Olympic Center ski school are ready to train in an interesting and exciting way all those who want to become skiers or boarders, as well as to help the participants, regardless of where they come from and what language they speak, in order to help them bring great impressions from the Olympic mountain.
