Tour description

 

 📌  Fall for the pearl of Balkans while learning eye-widening facts about ethnic, religious and cultural differences of Sarajevo on an absorbing tour. 

  During our tour, you will be able to fulfill your visit to the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina.Sarajevo is one of the most miscellaneous cities in Europe, due to its religious, cultural and historical diversity. It’s a city in which the east meets the west!

Tour is guided by professional guide (Adis), who is always opened for any kind of questions.

We will get to know the hidden corners of Sarajevo. On our tour, we will visit the city’s main monuments, churches, mosques, Jewish synagogue, bridges, city hall, and many other monuments of historical and cultural importance. Tours are always enriched by the best anecdotes and interesting stories and above all, we will spend an unforgettable time on this tour intertwined with good humor.

In this tour, you will experience the real soul of Sarajevo during the centuries. We will review more than 500 years of history, starting from the establishment of the city during the Ottoman Empire, then going through the period of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Yugoslavian era until we reach today's Sarajevo.

  Our starting point is the main square Baščaršija. Baščaršija represents the historical and cultural center of Sarajevo that still nowadays cherishes a tradition over 500 years old. With Sebilj, as the most recognizable landmark and fountain.

  Furthermore, we will explore the coppersmiths street “Kazandžiluk”, one of the oldest streets in Baščaršija, which conserves the tradition since the 15th century.

 

  Meanwhile, we are approaching the turbulent history of the Sarajevo City Hall “Vijećnica”, which is still considered a symbol of the city of Sarajevo since the 19th century..
 

  As we continue, we will visit the Emperor’s mosque, an indispensable part of the Islamic tradition of Sarajevo.

  Nevertheless, you will discover the story of the Latin bridge and beginnings of the World War I, as a turning point in modern history. We will visit the site of the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.
 

  We will walk by the Gazi Husrev Bey’s Bezistan, which is an endless detail that tells the story of the commercial life of the citizens during the Ottoman period.

  The city’s turbulent history and reputation for multicultural, multiethnic, and multireligious tolerance, where the world’s major monotheistic religions coexist for centuries, make this tour a must.
 
  In the sequent part of the tour, we will visit Orthodox Church, Catholic Cathedral, Old Jewish synagogue, Gazi Husrev-Bey’s Mosque and Clock Tower located in the very heart of the city. Although built in different eras, their significance is inevitable for the history of the city. Not just that, but all of them are only about 200m walking distance away!

  In front of the Cathedral “Sacred Heart”, we will talk about Sarajevo roses – symbolic roses and leftovers of the Sarajevo siege.

 

  On the other hand, we will walk next to Sarajevo Meeting of Cultures spot that has a symbolic meaning due to the cultural and religious influences which marked Sarajevo as a place where the east meets the west.



Don’t hesitate to ask questions, generosity and warmth are part of our culture.

Adis is a fantastic guide who managed quite a large group amazingly well. He is very knowledgeable and clearly loves his job. The tour was informative, interesting and well paced. Adis provided opportunities for questions and made the time between stops to speak with individuals who had more personal based questions. Could not recommend this more highly!
