  • The "Twist" tower is an inspiring bit of architecture and engineering feat to be sure. It is as impressive on the inside as the out side. There are a few great little shops there and a sweet coffee lo...  more »
  • If you want to see Sarajevo in all its glory, from a viewpoint that doesn't imagine ever, then this is the place; go up to 35 º floor of the Avaz Twist Tower and enjoy the show. You pay a mark to move up in the Observatory

  • The Avaz Twist Tower is a lovely high-rise and reportedly the tallest building in the Balkans - outside of Turkey, of course (which, after all, is partly in the Balkans). For a mere 1 KM per person, o...  more »

  • Great view above the city. The pub on the top is a good idea, but once they tried to take advantage on us.
  • Nice view but caffe at 35 is nothing special. Also there is now nice restaurant here. It is mainly a business building with offices.
  • A must visit place in Sarajevo. Amazing view from the top. Cozy caffe bar on 35th floor.
  • Working there.... very nice building.
  • Skyrocket in a pencil shape. Great view of city from this building

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.
