Very informative tour, told by the perspective of a person who lived through the siege and a driver who fought during the war. The driver took us to the most important points of the siege and the guide explained each spot’s history and place during the war. Small hike to the park at the top of the city through the old trails of the Winter Olympics and we were given time to take pictures and engage with the tour guide. The tour finished with a lovely treat of some of the best baklava in Sarajevo! Highly recommend for anyone interested in knowing more about the history of the city.
