Sebilj Brunnen (Fountain), Sarajevo

(4.1/5 based on 280 reviews on the web)
At Baščaršija square amid a Middle Eastern-style market, Sebilj Brunnen (Fountain) represents a pseudo-Ottoman wooden fountain that dates from 1754. Although the original one burned in 1852, the fountain was reconstructed and the current version dates back to 1891. Visit the spot to see where travelers used to refresh themselves: a government official would be appointed to stand there and fill pots with water, which he would then give free to anyone who was thirsty. Today, the fountain is one of the favorite photographic spots in Sarajevo.

  • This fountain is located in the Centre of the unique old town in the form of a kiosk, which is also one of the most popular photo motifs in Sarajevo.

  • The Sebilj fountain is located in the center of the square of Bascarsija (old town). It was built in wood and stone in the year 1753. From there you can begin the visit to Sarajevo, giving feed the pigeons or shopping in the shops that crowd the square. Interesting tourist point of view.
