About Yellow Fortress, Sarajevo
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 the city at, letting people know that they can break their day’s fast. When you’re going up to the place, you’ll also come across a neatly preserved war cemetery – reminder of the Bosnian Civil War. An once you’re at the top, whip out that t camera and click away. This is also a cool place for a picnic if you feel like carrying your food all the way up here.

Yellow Fortress, Sarajevo Reviews
It offers the best view on Sarajevo! From there it's possible to see the difference between Eastern and Western culture architecture. It is easy to climb to the bastion from Baščaršija. On the way there are many cute cafes. My recommendation is to spend some time up there and to take some food and drinks and enjoy the sunset :) also, buy the stuff before starting to climb the bastion cause there is no shop up there.
Magnificent sunset view. Best time to fill Sarajevo spirit is to come here during the holly month Ramadan when a small canon replica is casting evening feast breaking blast. No sitting options during winter season. A must when coming to Sarajevo.
Nice view up here, but I like the White Castle more cus it’s higher
Great place with good view of the city. Nice that there is a place that serves drinks there.
Great view over the city and only 10 min. walk from the old town.
