As you wake up in Sarajevo you will hear the buzz of the traffic, the sound of trams or the chatter of people conversing or rushing to work. Sarajevans like to start their day with coffee so we suggest you do the same.
For a perfect beginning of your day in Sarajevo we recommend that you drink Bosnian coffee in Bascarsija, the core of the old town.
At 10:30 you can join the Free Walking Tour staring in front of our office located in Bascarsija. This is best Free Walk among Sarajevo tours. Our guide will walk you through the streets and bring you one step closer to understanding the historical and cultural significance of the city.
For lunch we recommend ćevapi, the most popular Bosnian dish, which you can eat at Nune, a place with both charm and history located on Ferhadija street. We suggest to try famous sudžukice with kajmak (white cream cheese). Nune is one of first čevabdžinicas in town. They have best čevapi.
For the afternoon you can take our Fall of Yugoslavia Tour in order to better understand the tragedy which befell Sarajevo in the nineties when the city was besieged for 1425 days. The tour is about 3.5 hours long and if you join you will see places both inside and outside the city such as the Martyrs’ cemetery, the Tunnel of Hope as well as the frontlines.
After one more Sarajevo tour you will probably feel hungry again, so we recommend another Bosnian specialty, burek, and this time we suggest buregdžinica Bosna in Bravadžiluk street.
You can take a rest until nightfall when you should go out in the streets to experience a different vibe of Sarajevo. You can stroll the old town and follow the smell of water-pipes through narrow alleyways into shisha bars where the locals like to socialize. Another option is to stay in the city center and look for bars and clubs and maybe even listen to bands playing live music.
If you are planning to stay some more days you can contact our agency Meet Bosnia Travel and we can make some nice program for you and maybe suggest some other tours in Sarajevo, or excursions outside Sarajevo.
