A city where even strangers feel at home. With its abundance of busy cafes and abiding tradition of hospitality, Sarajevo has a unique charm.

Sarajevo is the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It's a cosmopolitan European city with an Eastern twist. It sits amongst endless hills and towering mountains, giving one a sense of isolation. The Old Town of Sarajevo is full of cobblestone streets, mosques and oriental-style shops. Sarajevo is a melting pot of diverse cultures. The capital is located on the original border between the Western and Eastern Roman empires after the original empire split in two. Few places on earth feature an Orthodox and a Catholic church, a mosque, and a synagogue almost next to each other. We recommend a walking tour to get to know the city.

Route for Sarajevo tour

The people of Sarajevo are incredibly friendly and welcoming. People here say that a man's wealth is not measured in his material belongings but rather in his friendships. Memories of the 1990s war and siege are still fresh. You'll see bullet holes throughout Sarajevo. Don't miss the Tunnel of Hope outside the center. It really captures the city's devastating past. Meat lovers will enjoy Sarajevo. Grilled meat is always on the menu, and no trip to Sarajevo is complete without sampling Cevapcici. This mincemeat kebab is the most famous dish in the country, along with burek (puff pastry filled with meat), which is usually served with yogurt.

What we love about Sarajevo


Senior Trip Planner

Usually overloooked by visitors to the region, Sarajevo is one of my favorite places in Europe. It is a place where a lot of complicated history comes together, and despite all odds, it manages to cherish all of its heritage, customs and cultures. Sarajevo is a big modern capital in lots of ways, but at the same time it has a small town vibe, where you get the feeling everybody knows everybody. And, above all, legendary hospitality and warmth - this is a place where people will welcome you sincerely no matter what.

I've visited Sarajevo numerous times and I always love to come back. This city has a soul and this is not just some meaningless phrase - mix of cultures and difficult history created specific atmosphere you won't have a chance to experience anywhere else. It's also Heaven for meat lovers!


Team Leader for France, Benelux & Switzerland

Sarajevo is an exceptional city by all means. Four centuries of Eastern domination are manifest in numerous graceful monuments throughout Sarajevo. Not to mention the local food! There you will try the most delicious cevapcici - calorific rissoles of spiced minced meat typically served with kajmak, a cream cheese. And even though you will surely not be the only tourists in Sarajevo, it is less crowded than other European capitals. You can wander the streets and most of the people you see are actually locals. This is one of my favourite cities in the former Yugoslavia.
