  • This Bezistan is pretty much like a former sample of Bursa or Istanbul covered bazaars. You can find copper works as well as clothing as its name represents.  more »

  • A very nice covered market with an old ottoman style. all shops inside it have cheap price products specially bosnian gifts. only comment is that it needs a little bit more care from the govermnent.
  • They renovated the place. It is in the "turkish" part of the old town. People are selling some nice stuff, but I think the most souvenirs are a bit overpriced. Some sellers are willing to negotiate, but most of them stick to their original prices. Most of the stuff are resold and are not actually made by people who sell them. We found just one lady, who according to her telling, they are making their own jewelry and they even look nice and unique. It is nice to visit this place, but not a must.
  • A small Turkish bazaar with similar goods from the main bazaar outside. It is much cleaner here and it is not crowded.
  • Nice building from Othoman's times, but as a museum does not offer much.
  • Increadible place. Greate atmosphere. According to guides virtually unchanged. Some good shopping opportunities as well.

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.
