Full description
Join this popular 3-hour coach tour of Sarajevo to learn what Sarajevans lived through from 1992-1995 during the Balkan wars.

Start at one of the best panoramas of the city, where your guide will explain the siege of Sarajevo. Visit the cemetery of the heroes who stood unarmed in defence of their city, and gave their lives for its freedom.

Find out what life was like without food, water, electricity, and gas, how children kept up with their school work, and what the cultural and sports life was like in the middle of war.

Many of the guides have personal experience of the war and will tell you about the collapse of Yugoslavia, the war’s aims, and the plans for the division of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Visit the Tunnel Museum via Sniper Alley, to learn about the tunnel’s role during the siege. Find out about the role of UN forces in Sarajevo, and the mistakes they committed during the conflict.
