Full description
The city of Sarajevo represents the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is a place where different cultures meet and makes Sarajevo a unique multicultural center. It is also a city where great empires ruled and left marks all over the country like the Ottoman Empire, Austria-Hungarian Empire, Communist Yugoslavia and the modern period of independence.

Is there a better example of a multi-confessional society than four religious temples within a 100 meter radius? The sounds and prayers one can hear at the same time represents a feeling which cannot be described but has to be experienced.

The scent of authentic coffee, the smell of a traditional kitchen, the historical appearance of the old part of the town, friendly citizens and the soul of the city itself will definitely guarantee an excellent vacation. Can you imagine that Sarajevo was the center of the world in 1984? It was the year of 14th Winter Olympic Games. Only eight years later, Sarajevo was war field, with the longest siege in modern history.

This was one of the best tours i ever had in my life. Edin the guide was so knowledgeable about his stuff. He had such clear understanding of the history, politics and always offered an unbiased opinion about even the most controversial topics. I highly recommend this tour and meeting Edin to have a chat about sarajevo..

The perfect overview of Sarajevo!

Edin was such a brilliant tour guide! So knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, included interesting facts and stories and took us around all the different areas of the beautiful city. Have a much better understanding of Sarajevo’s rulers across history and were shown some really relevant photographs of the city over time. Highly recommended!
