Full description
After hotel pickup, start your tour by visiting Sniper Alley and the hotel that was home to foreign correspondents during the Bosnian war. Continue to the War Tunnel Museum and learn more about the Siege of Sarajevo. You'll be guided by a survivor of the siege, who will answer any questions you might have.

Head to the mountain of Trebević to explore the sites of battlefields. See the remains of bunkers, minefields, tank caterpillar traces, trenches, and other reminders of the destruction of war. Then visit the abandoned Sarajevo Bobsleigh track, built for the 1984 Winter Olympics, and see amazing graffiti by artists from around the world.

Continue to the Jewish Cemetery, one of the largest in Europe. During the Siege of Sarajevo, the cemetery was the main front line and sniper nest of the Republic of Srpska army, overlooking the infamous Sniper Alley. The last stop is at Yellow Bastion, an 18th-century fort above the old town of Sarajevo where the Bosnian Army military cemetery is located.
