Sarajevo is like that friend who has managed to overcome the most screwed up of childhoods to become a wonderful, thoughtful, sensible adult with their stuff miraculously together.

Cable car to the top of the local mountain was the highlight of the trip. As well as the amazing food everywhere you go.

An absolutely fascinating city with warm people and interesting sights. Sarajevo has recovered remarkably since being the site of a war in the 90s.

Melting pot of culture, music, food, history, nature Sarajevo is a magical city


The most beautiful and charming city. Visited on a tour of the Balkans and no idea what to expect but blown away by the beauty of the city and setting, and the incredible history and resilience of the people. The history, from the ottoman era onwards, is fascinating and clearly evident as you walk through the centre. Most notable and touching is the ongoing recovery from the war and siege of the nineties. Took a wonderful tour with a woman who lived through that time to see the Yellow Fort, tunnel museum and Jewish cemetery; cannot recommend highly enough. Several museums sensitively exploring the Yugoslav war and it’s impact; the photographic exhibition on Srebrenica and the War Childhood both heartbreaking but important. Everyone should visit Sarajevo.
