Situated in one of the oldest areas in the city, Bascarsija represents an oriental bazzar where craftspeople sell their wares. Pick your way through vendor booths filled with colorful porcelain pots, brass coffee grinders, and decorative cloths. Cultures come together here: you can expect to see people in modern European garb alongside those outfitted in traditional Muslim attire. Underfoot, the old cobblestone adds interest. Buy crafts and merchandise fashioned by the hands of local artisans, and see products that unite the East and the West in a blend of colors, tastes, and smells. The ornamental fountain in the center of the square is worth a look, but be advised that thousands of pigeons gather here too. Our Sarajevo vacation route planner makes visiting Bascarsija and other Sarajevo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
