Why TOURIST have prejudice about SARAJEVO?
Most of the people when they hear or when they read something about Sarajevo or Bosnia and Herzegovina think about the war in the 90`s and that is the only image they have. A lot of tourists who are coming to Sarajevo are talking about their friends and family asking them why are they going to Sarajevo or Bosnia and Herzegovina? They tell them a lot of false stories like Sarajevo is still unsafe or it is still a war zone.
All of those stories are not true. A piece of bad information or wrong perception of a country can make a totally different image in someone`s mind. Some of the tourists coming to the BALKAN countries are avoiding visiting Sarajevo with also another perception “There is nothing much to visit and see”.
Bosnia and Herzegovina was in a war for almost four years and Sarajevo was under the siege, but it was 24 years ago. One of our tours https://meetbosnia.com/tour/fall-yugoslavia-sarajevo-siege-tour/ is specially made for those who want to know more about the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the SIEGE OF SARAJEVO.
But today Sarajevo is a multi ethnic city where people live in peace together with a lot of attractions to offer to those who are visiting. If you are a big fan of a war stories don`t worry Sarajevo have so much to offer besides that.
What can you expect to see when you come to Sarajevo
Surrounded by mountains it is ideal for the NATURE lovers. With four Olympic mountains just 30 minutes from the city center, you can enjoy all kind of activities like hiking, paragliding, riding a bike or just walking in nature in the summer. In winter time on the mountains is also beautiful, covered with snow and perfect for winter sports enthusiasts.
In summer you can also visit authentic BOSNIAN VILLAGE Lukomir on one of the mountains. It is perfect for those who want to escape from the noise and crowed in the city, this village will leave you speechless. With ethnographic houses, beutiful landscape and hospitality of the local people offering you traditional food, you will get an idyllic picture of life.
Other nature sights that you can visit that are close to Sarajevo are Skakavac Waterfall, Vrelo Bosna, Bijambare Cave, etc.
If you like to spend your holiday learning about the history of the city you are in, Sarajevo is also perfect for that. With the HISTORY and CULTURE of more than 500 years, there is something for everyone.
Beautiful viewpoints looking over the city from Yellow fortress or mountain Trebevic on which you can get with CABLE CAR in just a few minutes are amazing spots for photography lovers who will have a fabulous view of the city I recommend the best time to visit is just before the sunset.
In summer Sarajevo is known for the Sarajevo Film Festival, Baščaršijske noći and Sarajevo Food Festival and in winter there are a lot of sports events in the city and on the mountains.
