Sarajevo

Jerusalem of Europe

Nearly destroyed by war during the 1990s, the riverside city of Sarajevo now serves as one of the region's major educational, cultural, and commercial hubs. Developed as an Ottoman stronghold in the 15th century, the city quickly grew into a multicultural urban center, its architecture blending the finest elements of Islamic and Christian building styles. In 1914, Sarajevo provided the setting for the dramatic events that led to the outbreak of World War I. Seven decades later, the growing city hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics. Today Sarajevo lures travelers with its walkable old town that is packed with souvenir shops and traditional cafes, ideal for meeting the locals over a cup of steaming Turkish coffee. Sarajevo is in Sarajevo Canton. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Bosnia and Herzegovina using our trip planner.

Where to stay in Sarajevo

Although a compact city, Sarajevo offers a wide range of accommodations. Staying in Bascarsija (the old bazaar area) offers proximity to the most popular tourist attractions, long-established restaurants, and charming teahouses. Staying close to the activity won't cost a fortune in this fairly inexpensive town, and it is surprisingly peaceful late at night. You can choose from a number of historical hotels, but those travelling on a budget may prefer a private or dorm room in one of the many hostels. Modern establishments, which can have more reliable facilities, are mostly in the outskirts.
