Full description

The city of Sarajevo represents the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is a place where different cultures meet and make Sarajevo a unique multicultural center. It is also a city where great empires ruled and left marks all over the country like the Ottoman Empire, Austria-Hungarian Empire, Communist Yugoslavia, and the modern period of independence. Is there a better example of a multi-confessional society than four religious monuments within a 100 meter radius? The sounds and prayers one can hear at the same time represent a feeling which cannot be described but has to be experienced. The scent of authentic coffee, the smell of a traditional kitchen, the historical appearance of the old part of the town, the friendly citizens, and the soul of the city itself will definitely guarantee an excellent vacation. Can you imagine that Sarajevo was the center of the world in 1984? It was the year of 14th Winter Olympic Games. Only eight years later, Sarajevo was a war field, with the longest siege in modern history.

The tour was great. ENES was our guide and he provided a very grounded perspective throughout. He was respectful and courteous to everyone, and provided many funny, heartbreaking and insightful stories. I highly recommend him for a group unafraid to get more than just a “tour book” guide of Old Sarajevo.

My guide in Sarajevo was Kiki who is an unbelievable and very passionate local expert. She has so much knowledge of the history, the culture and all of the changes that Sarajevo has been through over the centuries. She showed me so many fascinating places that I would have never found by myself. Kiki has good tips on places to eat, drink, and visit. This is a must do tour!
