Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Interesting city Oct 28, 2015
since visiting sarajevo will be mostly about remains of balkan was, here are some tips
- watch history videos on youtube
- go to history museum next to holiday inn
- wander around back streets near river
Food is great and inexpensive and can be easily found near old town
Easy transport from Tuzla (incl. airport), mostar (train or bus)
1 day is enough to visit city, but allow 1 more day to go to history and tunnel museum outside the city.

Amazing Bascarsija Jul 08, 2008
One of my favourite places in sarajevo...
Located north of the Miljacka Riverside in the old town municipality
Sarajevo Market place and historical cultural centre. Built sometime in the 16th century, the name Bascarsija is derived from Turkish meaning Market place/ bazzar..
Lovely little streets dedicated to various crafts, coppersmiths, silver smiths etc.. they even sell sarajevo roses, shells that were dropped during the war and turned into lovely little gifts!! quite quaint and unusual.
You can see many things Gazi Husref Mosque, Clock tower, The Eternal flame, the National Library, which is now being restored, it was bombed during the Bosnian war and burnt for days,!!
It is nice just to sit outside and drink traditional Turkish coffee and eat cevapcici, and people watch the day away..
