Sarajevo Olympic Bobsleigh and Luge Track, Sarajevo

4.4
#9 of 20 in Sightseeing in Sarajevo
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • This was one of my favorite things to visit.. Afterwards, my roommates and I decided to visit the ski jump. It required some planning on our part, but anyone who enjoyed this will love it!  more »
  • To look a little after the ruins of the old Bobsled Track from the Winter Olympics in 1984, but it is certainly worth a visit.

  • A must see if you are a fan of the Olympic Games! The trees and branches are removef from the track. The turn you pass underneath and the last turn + finish are the most impressive!
  • We made the hike up from the city centre. Tough hike with gradients in excess of 27degrees but definitely worth all the effort. Must see if in Sarajevo.
  • A must see for sure. No questions asked. Walk to the start of the track then 10 minutes past that and you'll enjoy one of the best views of Sarajevo. Don't miss it.
  • Historic 1984 bobsleigh track in Sarajevo.
  • Great, quiet and serene place with lots of history.

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.
