Full description
You will have the opportunity to try and taste the finest savory and sweet traditional specialties of Bosnian cuisine. The tour kicks off at a hidden gem in the historic center of the city, where you will have the opportunity to try the freshest bakery goods - here you will see exactly why this bakery is a local institution in Sarajevo. Following this we will go along the magical street which had the status of a “carsija”, meaning bazaar, during the Gazi Husrev Beg in 1521, when over 60 shops had been built there. One more interesting fact is that Robert De Niro, during his visit to this shop, has bought a pair of these unique shoes for himself We will continue our tour in the spirit of tradition - you will have the opportunity to hear more about how Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of the few European countries that has its own Bosnian carpet - as a special form of applied, folk and traditional art. The tour will continue in the street named after the famous writer - Safet Beg Bašagić, who wrote some of his major works and is considered to be one of the founders of the Bosnian literature. This delicious drink is also a trademark of this patisserie. Following in the footsteps of old crafts - on our tour you will have the opportunity to visit one of the three wonderful shops in the Balkans - where coffee grinders are still handmade, for over 120 years a famous Sarajevo family nurtures this handmade art and keeps it from oblivion. The first mentions of the potter's trade in Sarajevo date back to 1489, and today the street is in the same place as it was in the 16th century, when it was built, in which the masters of this craft have been creating copper art for centuries. You can eat it at any time of the day, including breakfast. You will also have the opportunity to meet the last brush craftsman in Sarajevo - during our visit you will see how brushes are handmade today, and according to this craftsman - handmade brushes can be used for up to half a century. Further along, we will also visit a modern concept store with a showcase of local designers and artists, which will surely be an attraction. During this tour you will also visit one of the most famous restaurants in the city. Immerse yourself in the world of delicious cheeses, unforgettable tastes of cured and smoked meat and other products prepared by recipes that are centuries old. Last but not least, we will visit one of the oldest pipe shops in Sarajevo - we will try the most delicious dishes from the owners - and sudzukice in this local restaurant were named the best sudzuk by the Sarajevo food dictionary in 2019. We will end the tour with the most delicious handmade balkava - the queen of all baklava and of course served with the true delight - Bosnian coffee. After the tour, you will surely be richer with your experience of Sarajevo through the eyes of native citizens.

Hidaja was an amazing and knowledgable tour guide, and the tour was everything we could have hoped for and more! The food was really good and the workshops were fascinating. We recommend not eating breakfast before though, because of the many dishes and big portions but you’ll often have the option to bring the leftovers home as take-away. Really amazing overall!
