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 represent 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, the 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 a war field, with the longest siege in modern history.

Our walking tour with Hidaya at Meet Bosnia Tours was fantastic! She was extremely knowledgeable, very passionate which we love and her English was perfect. And because we opted for the paid version we got lucky and we’re the only ones so we had the opportunity to have some great conversations. We are now planning a few more tours in Sarajevo and plan to use Meet Bosnia tours for all of them.
