Know More about this tour

Meeting point is in front of Info Bosnia Tourist Information Center close to "Sarajevo Meeting of Culture" on the main pedestrian street Ferhadija. Every guest of ours receives a bottle of water and is accompanied to the transportation heading towards War Tunnel Museum. On the way there (25-30 minutes) we make a short introduction to the war theme and show important sites and buildings that later can be seen on the short movie played in War Tunnel Museum.

With arrival to the Tunnel Museum, we will explain the position of Museum and famous mark in front of the entrance named "Sarajevo Rose". After seeing the short movie, one-hour long presentation starts that explains fall of Yugoslavia, the war in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and creation and importance of the Tunnel.

After the Tunnel, we head toward 84 Olympic mountain Trebevi, which is the closest mountain to the center of Sarajevo and a first line during the Siege of Sarajevo. At the site, we have the opportunity to see and walk on the Bobsleigh and Luge Track and experience the most beautiful panoramic views of Sarajevo which are unfortunately the main positions of the enemy army.

Just under Trebevic Mountain lies the second largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. The cemetery contains unique shaped tombstones that can only be seen in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is believed their shape is influenced by medieval Bosnian tombstones that are named "Stecak".

From there we are heading towards old Ottoman part of the city to visit White and Yellow Fortresses. They both provide breathtaking views to the old part of the city.

The tour finishes at the same place where it began.

    Our tour guide Edin is super knowledgeable and generous to share his perspective about the history of former Yugoslavia and siege of Sarajevo. He makes them very comprehensive and vivid to the audience, while stays neutral and real about what the tragedy has left to this city and this country. We feel that his heart beats for this city. Totally worth it!非常值得参加的战争主题团,四小时的旅程 会让你认识不一样的波黑和坚强的萨拉热窝。

    We loved the tour and the stories the guide told us. Well chosen places that we wouldn't be able to reach by ourselves, so totally worth doing it.

    Very pleased with this tour.

    The tour was so informative. Our guide Mustafa was engaging and answered all questions. The tour was supposed to be 4 hours but lasted 5 hours, so we were never rushed. I would highly recommend this!

    Outstanding experience. Asim is knowledgeable, professional and dedicated. Me and my wife really enjoyed this trip.

    I did the Times of Misfortune tour with Asim. It was a great 4 hours with a really awesome and knowledgeable guide. What I appreciated most was the commentary and insight that Asim provided on the entire Balkan conflict and how things are today. If you are in Sarajevo, I really recommend you going on this tour!
