Sarajevo Olympic Bobsleigh and Luge Track, Sarajevo

4.3
Sarajevo Olympic Bobsleigh and Luge Track, an abandoned bobsled track overlooking the city of Sarajevo, was built for the 1984 Winter Olympics. The track was used for competitions until the siege of the city in 1992, when it served as an artillery position for Bosnian Serbs. Look for the war damages and bullet damage found in one of the last turns of the course. Today, the remnants of the track, covered in graffiti and overgrown with forest plants, are a favorite walking path for urban explorers. Currently the site is being renovated for the 2017 European Youth Olympic Winter Festival.

  • To talk to me about it, the former swiflet of the Winter Olympic Games, after years of sun rain and disrepair, have lost the luster of the day and become a waste market. But someone will graffiti the game, and turn a place that has already been forgotten and become a shadow lover! However, since the race road is far from the city, it may require a team to reach it.

  • The closest nature to the city. In recent years several restaurants near by has opened which provide quality Bosnian cuisine, as well as fast food. Enjoy the nature and walk along Olympic bobsleigh..
  • Nice place above city with clean air.
  • A solemn, eerie and wondrous place. We took a cab to the park, explored and walked the track all the way down the mountain. So interesting to see the degraded structures and reflect that nature is truly a force to be reckoned with.
  • Cool turist site and perfect for a different type of hike.
  • Amazing place. It's the only bobsled run in the world, of which I'm aware, that allows you to walk down the full length. Very cool. It's falling apart, and it's covered with grafitti, but it's still a very cool thing to do!
