Sarajevo Olympic Bobsleigh and Luge Track, Sarajevo

(150+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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 visited this place as part of a tour, apparently it is not possible to reach it by public transportation as it is on a hill. It is interesting probably for those who like photographing ruins. There ...  more »
  • Here also the story catches up. The Olympic Games and now, it's a site where you are going to remember what happened here. Accessed quite easily, without risk, everything was controlled. We walk through the remains and you can feel the spirit of sport. Do aboslument.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful monument to the history and culture of the city.
  • Great, quiet and serene place with lots of history.
