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.

  • Amazing place with history, you can get there easily in 15min from upper station of the newly opened cable car
  • An excellent tourist attraction with endless opportunities.
  • Amazing place, heartbreaking memory on winter olympic games 1984! Must visit and walk thru part of bobsleigh route!
  • The track is a crumbling mess of concrete, an incredible experience to walk on, one that you couldn't imagine having access to in many other parts of Europe as it is far from 100% safe. A sad reminder of how such facilities are left to degrade, no doubt something that was sped up by the war. Absolutely recommend taking a walk here
  • Nostalgic ambiance, beautiful nature. Needs some walking. Come with sports shoes.
