    Yellow Fortress

    Outdoors, View Point, Hiking Trail, Ancient Ruin

    Barely a fort anymore, this place is a remnant of one. Still it affords very nice views of the city; an excellent vantage point. It was built under the Ottomans but apparently didn’t gather much importance under it’s belt – because it’s not heavily advertised. It’s only time of significance during the year is the Ramadan, when the cannon at the fort is fired over t...Read more

    Sarajevo War Tunnel

    Historical Site, War Memorial, Architecture , Tunnel

    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.

    Latin Bridge

    View Point, Bridge, Historical Site

    This is a completely unremarkable bridge that spans over the Miljacka (though it’s one of the oldest in the city), except for one startling detail: if you stood at the northern end of the bridge and could look back in time to June 29 1914, then you’d see the event that led to the break out of WWI happen under your very nose! Yep, this is where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinat...Read more
  4. Gallery 11-07-95

    Art And Culture, Art Gallery, War Memorial

    Memorial galleries are often given sombre sounding names, but when one carries the date itself as it’s title, the solemnity is that much harsher. Visit then, this memory to the Srebenica Genocide – testament to the failure of not og human compassion, but human promise. The UN, which has declared the area a safe zone in 1993,did nothing in 1995 when Gen. Mladicand his Army of Republi...Read more
  5. Sacred Heart Cathedral

    Sacred Heart Cathedral

    Religious Site, Architecture , Cathedral

    It wouldn’t be that special a place compared to other European Cathedrals, but thanks to its location in an open square surrounded by cafe’s, restaurants and shops, the Cathedral manages to hold it’s own with its classically Gothic Architecture. Its pretty and serene inside – nothing complicated. Pope John Paul II served mass here in 1997, so that’s one claim to fa...Read more
