Sarajevska Pivara, Sarajevo

4.2
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 interesting with info in English but you have finished in 20 minutes. They have a brewery tap where the beer is reasonably priced and you have a range of beer not found generally in Sara...  more »
  • The oldest brewery in Sarajevo, we could not go? Beer at reasonable prices, super atmosphere in a setting of yesteryear. Only negative, staff ... often makes you wait for minutes without them have particular things to do.

  • Try the dark beer, it's really good. Food is rustic but well prepared and comes in large portions. There are regular music events and the volume can get quite high.  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!!
  • One of my favourite places. Historic, pleasant, and beautiful.
  • Best beer in town, big portions of very tasty meals and fantastic atmosphere
  • 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.

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.
