Sarajevo for a walk through history

Learn about the history of the ancient city and its inhabitants in various museums. Visit the fascinating Tunnel Museum, in a tunnel beneath a suburban house which the people of Sarajevo dug during the last war and used to bring in food supplies. Walk across the Latin Bridge, where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in 1914. The city has many notable religious buildings but be sure to see the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque, one of the largest and most beautiful mosques in the region.

Sarajevo for gourmets

No visit to Sarajevo is complete without stroll through Baščaršija, the city's sixteenth-century bazaar, where friendly little shops and traditional restaurants and cafés welcome visitors from all over the world. In Baščaršija you can try a genuine burek and other savoury pastries, ćevapčići served in flatbread with yoghurt, and, to finish, a traditional dessert such as baklava or tufahija. Treat yourself to a real Turkish coffee, prepared in the traditional way in a džezva (or cezve) and served in a tiny cup known as a fildžan.

Sarajevo for film lovers

Ever since the end of the last war, Sarajevo has been attracting cinephiles from all over the world, who come to the city each August for the Sarajevo Film Festival.

Sarajevo for nature lovers

Not far from the city, at the Vrelo Bosne spring, you can breathe fresh air in a wonderful park. In winter, _skiers_ can take to the slopes on Jahorina (30 kilometres from Sarajevo) – a venue for the 1984 Winter Olympics, with their unforgettable mascot Vučko, the little wolf. If you have time, spend a day in the medieval city of Mostar (70 kilometres from Sarajevo), most famous for its beautiful Stari Most (Old Bridge) over the river Neretva.
