Tour Highlights: 

  • Bascarsija Square – Sebil Fountain

  • City Hall
  • Caravan Saray
  • Gazi Husrev bey's Mosque and clock tower
  • Jewish synagogue
  • Sarajevo Meeting of Cultures Spot
  • Catholic Cathedral

Firstly, we will make an introduction, telling the most important parts of history and culture in Bosnia and Herzegovina and its beautiful capital – Sarajevo – a city which was the stage of the world's most important events three times. During the tour, you will find out why Sarajevo is called European Jerusalem and see the most important monuments in the Old Town of Sarajevo.

We will go to the most recognizable landmark of Sarajevo - Sebilj, the wooden fountain located on Baščaršija square, also known as Pigeon Square, and after that, you will enjoy a real flashback to the 15th century, enjoying unique copper craft in Kazandziluk street – the oldest street in the city of Sarajevo.

Our next stop would be Sarajevo City Hall - the most beautiful Austro-Hungarian-era building, another symbol of Sarajevo.  Beside the city hall, this building served as National and University Library. 

One of the most interesting spots of the tour will certainly be the medieval  caravan Saray still testifying to the Ottoman influence on Bosnian culture and architecture. 

Our guide will take you to the biggest and one of the most beautiful mosques in Sarajevo -  Gazi Husrev-bey's Mosque.  Nearby the most beautiful mosque in Europe, you will see a unique Clock Tower famous for showing a completely unusual time whose story our guide will certainly not miss to tell you.

After seeing the “Sarajevo Meeting of Cultures” spot, you will see the oldest Jewish synagogue in our city and learn more about the Jewish community in Sarajevo.

Later on, will continue in direction of the modern part of Sarajevo where you will find a completely different architectural style typical for the Habsburg Monarchy. We will see the imposing  Cathedral and statue of Pope John Paul II who visited Bosnia twice. Right next to the Cathedral, we will talk about Sarajevo roses. We will also see the imposing orthodox church in Sarajevo - The cathedral of the Nativity of the Theotokos, and, later on, pass by the charming ottoman Bazar – Gazi Husrev-beys Bezistan.

 

Tour finishes next to the famous Latin Bridge, Franz-Ferdinand˙s assassination site, and this incredible story that changed the history of the world.

Nermin è stata una guida eccezionale, non solo per la disponibilità e per la professionalità, ma anche per la sua empatia e il suo saper raccontare, con il sorriso della rinascita, eventi che hanno reso la sua vita un esempio. Due ore indimenticabili!
