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:

  • visit old town Baščaršija
  • visit The Gazi Husrev-bey Mosque
  • visit The Vječnica

Sarajevo is the place to go!
