Bridge Tourist Spot
At , look for the padlocks affixed by recent lovers to commemorate the death of a young couple that was killed on the spot during the siege of Sarajevo. Bosnian Serb Bosko Brkic and Bosniak Admira Ismic were shot by snipers while trying to cross the bridge together to escape the sieged town. The two are now buried side by side in Lion Cemetery. A stone memorial plaque in the middle of the bridge bears the names of Suada and Olga, the first people killed in Sarajevo in the beginning of war.

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.
