Brewery Food & Drink
The century-and-a-half old Sarajevska Pivara has never stopped brewing, even during Ottoman times, two World Wars, and the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s. Visit the company that distributed drinking water to people during times of conflict. Today the company serves beer, traditional food, and soft drinks during much more peaceful times. Sample their selection of brews, which range from from blonde to dark, and ask to try some of the firm's award-winning beers and water. The company's regular brew and mineral water both won gold medals in 2011 from Monde Selection, a European organization that tests consumer products.

  • The museum is overpriced for just one room with some info about the history of brewing in Sarajevo. The pub serves good beer and average food. Portions are large. Chicken wings are not spicy enough. S...  more »

  • The staff at brewery museum is really informative to introduce the historical background and this brewery was the only water source during the 1992-1995 war period. The retro decoration of brewery restaurant is really fascinating for creating a very joyful atmosphere to have meals go with the draft beer. Friendly staff also makes our dining experience very exceptional!!
  • Nice local brewery, but I dont like all of the beers
  • Fantastic Brewery with delicious beer and rustic atmosphere. Definitely recommend if you're Sarajevo.
  • Light, unfiltered, dark, and mixed beers are available on draft. They also have premium in the bottle which tastes the best. The dark is a little sweet and the mixed and unfiltered are decent. The museum is a room full of the history of the brewery. Museum was $3KM
  • Good beer in a rustic place.

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.
