Sarajevo Olympic Bobsleigh and Luge Track, Sarajevo

(170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I've never been anywhere quite like this. It was striking on many different fronts. 1) Walking on a bobsled track you realize how steep and curvy it is. 2) beautiful nature walk as the forest is takin...  more »

  • 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.
  • Historic 1984 bobsleigh track 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.
  • One of the Must see things in Sarajevo. 1984 Olympic games memorabilia. Today is destroyed, but there are still extreme enthusiast who like do make bike - skate - roller blade down ride.
