"Putnici" ("Travellers") was the Bosnian and Herzegovinian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, performed in Bosnian and French (the first time that Bosnia had not entered a song entirely in Bosnian) by Dino and Béatrice.
The song was performed twenty-second on the night, following Germany's Sürpriz with "Reise nach Jerusalem - Kudüs'e seyahat" and preceding Estonia's Evelin Samuel & Camille with "Diamond of Night". At the close of voting, it had received 86 points, placing 7th in a field of 23.
The song itself is elliptical in meaning, with lyrics dealing with being travellers through life.
The folk-inspired performance of the duo has become something of a favourite in fan circles, however, based on the fact that they were not the first-choice contestants. Bosnian band Hari Mata Hari had been selected to perform, but their intended entry "Starac i more" had already been released elsewhere (they would, however, represent the country in the 2006 contest).
