Sarajevo War Tunnel, Sarajevo
(4.3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
During the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, Bosniak forces used Sarajevo War Tunnel to circulate between Sarajevo and the area controlled by the United Nations. Food, weapons, and humanitarian aid were brought to the city secretly through this underground passage, dug entirely by hand right below a war zone. Walk through this 800 m (2,624 ft) tunnel lined with wood, steel, and cables. Experience the moist smell of mud and dust, knowing that those who built it worked in waist-high water and experienced repeated shelling from above. You can ask for a guided tour at the site. Make Sarajevo War Tunnel a centerpiece of your Sarajevo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Sarajevo holiday planner.

  • Well is true that to get there need helps of a guide, I recommend search to Ervin of Toorico Tours, them owners of the tunnel already you know and you allow many concessions. It's impressive if they tell you the story of the days of that family in that tunnel. I would not lose it me for nothing. Re-fuel at less than 5 euros per person.

  • A lot of hope there was information about sightseeing tunnel yazisinda and I went to my first day in Bosnia travel. While working in the tunnel before a documentary that tracked and Ray Yates. Smart phone also got information about movements, Turkce choices available. Very exposed a Department of Cryo-tunnel, but then things about documents vs. tram number 3, a 7 km by taxi to get to the last stop and then took back. Entry 10 km.

  • From a garrison of war a family has invented a small museum. Is a little off from Sarajevo, not far from the airport and you can visit a few metres of the tunnel that was used to supply the city during the siege. Interesting video of shooting 90 years on the tunnel running but overall a moderately interesting visit.
