Tour Details

Join us on an interesting walk through the city and learn more about the history, architecture, tradition, and nature of Bosnia itself. Discover and experience Sarajevo through our eyes, which will bring the past and present to life for you.
Centuries of multiculturalism have led to the creation of a unique, rich, and enchanting cultural mix in Sarajevo, which like a magnet attracts visitors from all over the world. The population of the area where Sarajevo lies is evidenced by numerous traces left behind by the Neolithic Butmir civilization, the Illyrians, the Romans, the medieval Slavic states, and the Ottoman Empire. Ever since its foundation in 1460, Sarajevo has been constantly expanding to this day. Full of historical and cultural sights from different eras, Sarajevo will delight you with its views, locations, hospitality, and delicacies.
The urban core of Sarajevo was conceived with the construction of the Emperor’s Mosque and the city districts on the left bank of the Miljacka River, while Baščaršija is located on the right.
Baščaršija was the largest commercial center of the central Balkans, and today it is the historical heart of the city, where, in addition to numerous sights, it is also the epicenter of traditional craft production and gastronomic offer.

Itinerary

Day 1 Baščaršija, the tour of the city, and historical sights

Planned arrival in Sarajevo in the morning hours from Cazin
After accommodation, we visit Baščaršija, which is also the gastronomic center of Sarajevo, and it is there that you will find Sarajevo’s most famous aščinica, buregdžinica, cevabdžinica… Drinking homemade coffee from a fildžan with rahatluk while looking at Sebilj is something you should not skip, and the cevapi at Želja or in kebabs special is another.
Baščaršija is also home to two of Sarajevo’s remaining covered bazaars, Gazi Husrev-begov and Brusa bezistan, as well as the shops of famous Sarajevo craftsmen, Morić and Kolobara han. The most important buildings are the Sebilj wooden fountain, and the Baščaršija and Gazi Husrev-bey mosques, madrasa and library.
Near the Gazi Husrev Bey Mosque, you will notice a tower about thirty meters high. The clock tower has always shown the time of prayer. This clock tower is different because it has the only public clock in the world that measures time lunarly, that is, according to the moon. The mechanism was acquired in London, and there are only two such mechanisms in the world: in Big Ben in London and the Clock Tower in Sarajevo.
We head towards the Sarajevo City Hall building, which is not only an architectural masterpiece but also a witness to the historical drama that took place in Sarajevo from the end of the 19th to the beginning of the 21st century.
Note: Entrance to the Town Hall is charged 10 KM, and is not included in the price of the package.
We will visit Sarajevo’s most famous promenade, the Ferhadija. Walking around Ferhadija, you will see buildings from the Turkish or Austro-Hungarian rule, all the way to more modern buildings, all with the buzz of the always-lively street, full of travelers and locals.
At a short distance of only a few hundred meters, there is a synagogue, a cathedral, an Orthodox church, and a mosque, and they can only be seen so close in this city. Finally, get to know the Eternal Fire, one of Sarajevo’s most famous monuments.
