Sarajevois a city where East meets West. It represents a melange of influences from Byzantine, Ottoman, Sephardic, Roman, Austrian and Balkan cultural spheres. All of this is wrapped by breathtaking mountains and lush forests. Bascarsija, the old oriental trading quarters of Sarajevo is a wonderful place to leisurely explore by foot. We are a tight knit community and as such we value our time with our families and friends. Our time together often revolves around one of our favourite pasttimes, coffee. Coffee is the social backbone of Sarajevo, with business deals, new friendships and love affairs settled over a strong cup of black elixir. That is why our streets are lined with cafes.
In order for you to really experience our culture and hospitality we suggest you stay in one of the growing number of new Sarajevo hotels, apartments, hostels, or B&Bs located either in or in walking distance of Sarajevo's old town. One can explore many of the historical and heritage sites during the day. Be sure to wander around the Sarajevo city museum located in Brusa Bezistan, the old trading center with its fascinating exhibition of Sarajevo through the ages from the Neolithic to the 21th century. Not to be missed is our Beys mosque, built in the 15th century during the Ottoman period. Or why not take the tram to the suburbs of Ilidza and witness the Tunnel of Hope that connected Sarajevo to the outside world during the longest siege in modern European history?
