Sarajevo War Tunnel - Review
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
Situated out of town, near the airport on a quiet road, you're a bit unsure you have the right place, but you will see Parking signs for 'Tunel' and that's where it is. We stopped at the first parking which cost 2km. The museum itself is quite low key but really well done. There is a film being played about the tunnel which helps orientate you and then exhibits about the tunnel, as well as going through the tunnel itself. Nicely done and worth the visit if you have a car (or short taxi ride).
Excellent experience. One who wants to know the real story about Bosnian war should visit this place. Curators and personel are very kind and knowledgeable.
Definitely visit if in Sarajevo. Good info provided even if the museum itself is very small (it's the actual home where the tunnel started/ended).
Touching experience which gives a memorable sense of how the siege of Sarajevo looked like and how Serb troops tried to erase people of Sarajevo and its spirit. You can visit a souvenir shop and get a piece of history with you.
This is a must place to visit to see human crimes done against bosnian. It is a house used by surrounded bosnian (between 1992 and 1995) to make a life line tunnel under the airport to save women and children and to get weapons and other supplies to fight Serbs. Entry fees was 10 KM per person. There is a video show for the story. You can enter the tunnel for a short distance and see a small museum of how life was under Contenious bomb shelling.
