Full description
After meeting with your group and guide, you will begin your 3-part, best of Sarajevo tour. You will begin by admiring the symbols of the Austro-Hungarian rule, hearing the story of the Spite House. You will then move on to discover the heart of the Ottoman rule, Sarajevo’s Bascarsija, before drinking water from the Sebilj Fountain. Moving on, you can pray in one of the four big houses of God in Sarajevo, and find out why people call it a “European Jerusalem”. You will then learn about the local hospitality over a cup of Bosnian coffee, whilst sharing the importance and the meaning of its consumption.

Next, you will begin a war tour. You can find out what it was like to live without food, water, electricity and gas, as well as how the children were going to school and what the culture and sports scene was like throughout war. Upon arrival at the Tunnel Museum, you will pass through 20 meters of the original tunnel, before watching a movie about the war in Sarajevo upon which the guide will explain the role of the tunnel during the siege, its construction and its methods of use.

For the final stage of your tour, you will learn about the 14th Olympic Winter Games which were held in Sarajevo from February 8th to 19th, 1984. It was the first Winter Olympics to be held in a communist country, and on this tour you can see the place where the opening ceremony took place whilst discovering what the Olympic Games meant for the people of Sarajevo. You will be taken to three breathtaking mountains around the city that hosted the Olympics, some of which are still in ruins from the war. At the end you will visit the Olympic Museum, where the memory of one of the most successful Winter Olympics of the 20th century is kept.
