    So getting there is a bit challenging, a bit random but we walked from the Sarajevo tunnel, stopping for lunch along the way. Walk was about 1 hour 30 but nice. Use Google maps to tell you what buses ...  more »

    This is a very nice and quiet park just outside the center of Sarajevo. There are a few foodstalls and places to buy food. This park is very nice to escape the city life of Sarajevo. There are o lot of places where you can sit. A lot of shadow when the sun is shinning. You can also drink the water from the spring. The water is ice cold and really refreshing! recommend if you go to Sarajevo!

    Pretty park, more like picnic style for families, spring streams make the forest looks especially beautiful, long tree walking alley is a pleasant to get back to the city.

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.
