Step Back in Time with Sarajevo
Whether visiting the Bosnian capital for its war-torn history or architectural beauty, Sarajevo provides its visitors with an abundance of activities, attractions, and culture. It has recently become a must-see destination. So, step back in time and wander the photogenic Baščaršija (old town), explore 19th century Austro-Hungarian buildings, and look out for “Sarajevo Roses” on the pavement.
Sarajevo’s restored historical center is a welcoming hub of museums, sights, and food. Explore The Tunnel Museum, a war experience attraction where visitors walk through a hand-dug tunnel beneath the airport runway, the only lifeline to rest of the world while the city was under seige. Other interesting sights to visit are the Latin Bridge, City Hall, and Svrzo House among many others. For a bird’s-eye-view, catch an elevator to the top of Avaz Twist Tower where you can see the Turkish inspired minarets and red-roofed Bosnian houses dotted across the city.
Along with great value accommodation are unlimited dining options including high quality Bosnian and international cuisine. Grab a rejuvenating coffee at any of the local cafes and snack on burek, a traditional savory pastry. And if you’re a sports fan, be sure to head 30km outside the city for some of the most accessible ski slopes thanks to Sarajevo acting as host to the 1984 Winter Olympics.
