About Sarajevo War Tunnel, Sarajevo

A real life war tunnel! How exciting is that? Built during the Bosnian War, and during the Siege of Sarajevo, the tunnel had multiple purposes;

  • It linked a neighbourhood within the siege to one outside.
  • It allowed the city defenders to circumvent the arms embargo.
  • It allowed food and medical supplied into the city.
  • It allowed people to escape into a UN controlled area.
  • Allowed telecommunications to be set up.

The house into which the northern end of the tunnel opened up has been converted into a visit, and it’s one of the country’s most popular attractions. It survived for years and years without any sort of a government support. You’re not allowed to go too deep into the tunnel, the 25 metres allowed is more than enough. There’s a few memorabilia and exhibitions too.

Sarajevo War Tunnel, Sarajevo Reviews

  • Generally speaking it’s ok, very small though. And the public transportation isn’t so convenient but still doable. They don’t accept Euro, but if you tell the cashier you don’t have local currency, he will tell you pay someone else then come back. So we paid the fee that way

  • It's the house of Kolar family. That used as one of the gate of Sarajevo underground tunnel. Constructed during the three years siege of Sarajevo. It helps many people. Now, we just see a view meters of the original lenght. The house is now a also a little museum. The family still live there. We saw videos, and some stuffs from the war.

  • The tunnel is the most important on my way to Balkan due to I realized that United Nations, European Union, NATO are ridiculously toothless institutions. It is sad memorial of last Jugoslavian war.

  • Shown a small sample section of the tunnel, story told mentioned it provided a means of transportation for every essential resources (medicine, food, equipment, etc) for population's survival.

  • If you interested to see how people of Sarajevo survived during the siege you must visit this place
