Sarajevo Holidays Experiences

  • Bicycle and walk tours: Because Sarajevo is small, it’s easy to find your way around. One of the most recent additions to the city is a brand-new cycle path that takes you from Ilidža to Hrasno. Alternatively, join one of the many walking tours that really help you to immerse yourself in the city, just like a local. Check out the Old Town, where you’ll wander through a maze of cobbled streets filled with artisan workshops, mosques, and boutiques.
  • The Latin Bridge: one of the most iconic structures in the city, it was here that Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated in 1914, sparking the First World War. It’s an historically important site and it also gives you a great view of the city from a different perspective.
  • Museums: Sarajevo has plenty of museums to explore, which will give you a great insight into the history and culture of the region. Check out the National Museum, which has a particularly interesting exhibition of the Turkish influences to be found in the city. For a more personal glimpse into Ottoman life in Sarajevo, visit the 18th century Svrzo House.
  • Local festivals: Sarajevo holidays give you a chance to join in with the local festivities too, and there are festivals and events all year round. The Sarajevo Film festival is held every year in July or August, and is one of the largest film festivals in Europe.
