Sarajevo: Europe''''s Rising Star

Two decades have passed since an almost four-year siege pummeled this capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. You can still see some bullet holes on buildings, but the citizens haven’t lost their zest for life. For an overview of the city, a tram or taxi will take you past the Latin Bridge—where visiting Archduke Franz Ferdinand was shot, setting World War I into motion—to the newly remodeled History Museum, which focuses on 20th-century Sarajevo. Nearby, the recently reopened National Museum holds Bosnia’s archaeologic and artistic treasures. 

You always start with a coffee here and the best place to have real Bosnian coffee is the old Ottoman quarter Baščaršija, where you can also buy nice souvenirs. Then fill up on Bosnia’s most famous dish, a grilled minced meat sandwich called ćevapi. The city center is still visited by the locals, and the prices are local prices. The best way for exploring Sarajevo is our tourist tour Grand City Tour. 

Grand City Tour

The Sarajevo Siege tour takes visitors on an intimate trip to the mountainous front line. Walk on the 1984 Olympic bobsled track, left littered with artillery shells. On the way back, stop at the Tunnel Museum to learn about the secret passageway which was dug to transport supplies. For more information we would recommend you to take our tour called Times of Misfortune.
