In the last years I was often in Sarajevo. Sarajevo is a miniature Istanbul. Everyone needs to see this lovely city with narrow cobblestone streets, majestic mosques, delicious food and friendly locals.
Sarajevo is famous for it’s cultural and religious diversity – Islam, Orthodox, Judaism and Catholicism had traditionally coexisted there for centuries. A little older might just associate Sarajevo with one thing – the Bosnian War. Sarajevo was under siege by Serbian forces for 1.425 days! A lot of this can still be seen around town. The red markings on the ground are known as “Sarajevo roses” and serve as a reminder of what the people of Sarajevo had to endure.
In 1984 Sarajevo was hosted the 14. Winter Olympics Games.
3 things to see in Sarajevo:
