Tour description

👋Welcome to Sarajevo!

✅ Join us on the free walking tour that will lead you to Sarajevo from the Ottoman era. You will see the most important ottoman buildings in the area of the Old town, the oldest streets of Sarajevo and you will hear interesting legends and information about the places you see.

🤝 We’ll meet at Sarajevo City Hall. Then we will go to see Emperor’s mosque and bridge.

➡️After that, we are going to see Bravadžiluk – the street of food and Kazandžiluk, Coopersmith street.

➡️From Kazandžiluk we are going to see Baščaršija’s mosque – the mosque in the heart of the Old town.

➡️Then we will see Brusa bezistan – covered marketplace from ottoman times that is now a museum.

➡️From Brusa bezistan we are going to visit sebilj, a wooden fountain – one of the most popular symbols of Baščaršija and from that place, you will see the White fortress and you will hear the legend about the name of Sarajevo, which is in correlation with that mysterious fortress.

➡️ The next stop is the Old Orthodox church – one of the most important historical monuments and one of the oldest churches in Sarajevo.

➡️After the Old Orthodox church, we will see a complex of ottoman governor Gazi Husrev-bey. The complex contains a mosque, a school madrasa, and a clock tower.

➡️ Next, you will see the Jewish museum, the oldest synagogue in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

➡️Then we are going to see Gazi Husrev-bey’s Bezistan – a covered marketplace that still fulfills its purpose, and rests of one han – a free hotel.

➡️ We will end our tour at the place of the Latin bridge – an ottoman bridge that leads to the neighborhood Latinluk in which in Ottoman times Christians were living. Near this bridge is a place where Gavrilo Princip killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, which was one of the main reasons for starting WWI.

🕐The duration of the tour is around 1-1.5 h.
