Dr. Semir Osmanagić visited IUS

Dr. Semir Osmanagić gave a lecture as part of his visit to International University of Sarajevo (IUS) on ‘Tourism Potential of BiH: Archaeological Tourism’, on Tuesday, January 27, 2015. IUS Rector, Prof. Dr. Yücel Oğurlu with his associates welcomed the distinguished guest in his office. 

In 2005, Dr. Osmanagić discovered an ancient pyramid complex in Visoko (BiH) which consists of five colossal stone structures in the form of a pyramid that are supported by a network of prehistoric underground tunnels. During the lecture he focused more on tourism potentials of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the importance of promotion of archeological tourism in BiH. The lecture was attended by many students and professors. "The development of archaeological tourism is not based on verbal proclamations but on concrete moves such as these visitations and an invitation to all, to visit the exciting archaeological site and find proof by themselves. My wish is that Bosnia and Herzegovina is shown to the world as a country of tourism, cultural heritage and archeology '' - said Dr. Osmanagić. 

At the end of the lecture, all guests had the opportunity to ask questions to the distinguished archaeologist and learn more about how the world and Europe look at this socio-historical phenomenon, and what can be expected in the near future.
