Sarajevo

Sail down the beautiful rivers

Overview

Sarajevo shot into the spotlight when Franz Ferdinand was assassinated here, the catalyst that set off World War I in 1914.  An exhibit titled Sarajevo 1878 – 1918 talks about the city’s turbulent Austro-Hungarian history. The Tunnel Museum documents a more recent history when Sarajevo was shaken to its core by the Balkan war.  Walk through a short section of the 1m wide, 1.6m high hand-dug tunnel under the airport runway which acted as the city's lifeline to the outside world during the 1992–95 siege of Sarajevo. Explore the 17th century remnants of the Vratnik Citadel which affords gorgeous vistas over the city and a fascinating insight into its history. You cannot miss a stroll through Pigeon Square (replete with pigeons!) which opens out onto the Sebilj, a beautiful 18th century fountain. Walk through the buzzing Kazanziluk or Coppersmith Alley, as you head towards the restored old part of Sarajevo. Take a fascinating journey to eclectic Sarajevo with Exeter International.
