Full description

Start your tour with transportation to the War Tunnel Museum. On the way (25-30 minutes) receive a short introduction to the topics of the war and see important sites and buildings with your own eyes, which you will later hear about again in the museum. Arrive at the Tunnel of Hope, learn about the position of the museum and its famous mark in front of the entrance named "Sarajevo Rose". After seeing a short movie, a one-hour-long presentation starts, which will explain the fall of Yugoslavia, the war in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, and the creation and importance of the tunnel.  After the Tunnel, head toward the 1984 Olympic mountain Trebević, which is the closest mountain to the center of Sarajevo and was part of the front line during the siege of Sarajevo. At the site, you have the opportunity to see and walk in the destroyed hotel of Osmice. From there experience the most beautiful panoramic views of Sarajevo which unfortunately were also the main positions of the enemy army.     Just under the Trebevic Mountain lies the second largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. The cemetery contains unique shaped tombstones that can only be seen in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is believed their shape is influenced by medieval Bosnian tombstones that are named "Stecak". Head towards the old Ottoman part of the city to visit the Yellow Fortress. The last stop of the tour is the "Shehidi" (Martyr) cemetery, the resting place of the soldiers that gave their life for independent Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the heart of the cemetery lies the grave of the first Bosnian president Alija Izetbegovic.

We had a very instructive half day with our guide Enes. We went through the key sites related to civil war and discussed with him about nowdays effects on modern Bosnia society. A professional fluent English speaking guide and also a Sarajevo native can open a real gash on tragic days in past wartime. A valuable experience to discover Sarajevo and understand a tragic event of European history.

This was a fantastic tour - informative, interesting and a fascinating insight into the experiences of people living through the Sarajevo Siege in particular. Enes our guide was really outstanding in explaining the history, the lead up and the reality of the experience. He was also really friendly, recommended some local places to eat and some local dishes to try. After the tour, we felt that we had a much better understanding of the history of the city and the country as well as having had the opportunity to see some really fascinating sites. Thanks!!

The Tour was great, despite the grim topic of a City under siege. My tourguide, Haris was very approachable and super friendly. Above all he was able to transfer this very complicated history from its pre-yugoslav beginnings till it s sad outcome into a accesible Form which often became a dialogue that was very informative but always open for discussions. Apart from the war I was also given the opportunity to understand the cities open culture better than before. Highly recommended!
