    Itinerary

    Old Town Walk


    Discover most interesting sights of Sarajevo

    From picturesque Turkish bazaar from period of the Ottomans founded in 15th century we are going to visit the administrative and cultural center of the city from the Austro-Hungarian period and you’ll be amazed by their influence and discover typical architecture style like in Vienna or  Prague. Founded by the Ottomans in the 15th century, Sarajevo was recognized as a multicultural haven for Muslims, Serbs, Croats, Turks, Jews, and others for hundreds of years.

    By the late 17th century, Sarajevo was considered the most important city in the Balkans after Istanbul, and it is said to be the only city in the world where prayer calls can be heard simultaneously from mosques, synagogues, and churches. After hosting the 1984 Winter Olympics, Sarajevo, this once-shining example of ethnic diversity, went into chaos during the Yugoslav wars of the early 1990s.

    Although Bosnian Serb artillery shelled the city during a three-and-a-half-year siege—the longest in the history of modern warfare—most of Sarajevo has since been rebuilt, and the city is rapidly recovering  its spirit of religious tolerance.


    Explore numerous historical buildings and monuements

    In Bascarsija, or Old Town, we'll see shining examples of the city's Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian influences, including a 16th-century mosque complex that is considered one of the finest examples of Ottoman architecture in the Balkans. Here, we'll walk through an old alleyway where copper-smiths still preserve their trade and enjoy a taste of local snacks.

    We'll also explore charming pedestrian zone Ferhadija, the Austrian quarter, along with the historic Latin Bridge—site of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand that set the spark for World War I.


    Enjoy the best views of Sarajevo
