Join us on our Free Walking Tour in Sarajevo starting every day at 10:30. This is one of the best ways to get to know Sarajevo. We start in front of our office located at the crossroad of Gazi Husrev Begova Street (Jewelry Street) and Mula Mustafa Baseskija Street.
We will stroll around Baščaršija, the core of old-town Sarajevo. This is the area where most of the recognizable landmarks of Sarajevo are located. We will see the Old Orthodox Church, one of the oldest religious objects in Sarajevo. Above all, the most recognizable landmark of Sarajevo is Sebilj, a wooden fountain located on Baščaršija Square. The legend says that drinking water from here means that you will come back to this city surely in the future. Likewise you will find the oldest streets of Sarajevo, and walk through Baščaršija, the liveliest part of the city.
Moreover during the Free Walking Tour in Sarajevo you will also see the Gazi Husrev-bey Mosque. Nearby this extraordinary beautiful mosque you will see a unique clock tower famous for showing very unusual time for the modern world. Furthermore we will walk through the oldest shopping center of Sarajevo, the “Bezistan” – old bazaar from the Ottoman period.
The Sarajevo City Hall is the most recognizable Austro-Hungarian-era building in Bosnia. Since 1949 it served as the National and University Library and now it is the seat of the city council once again.
Additionally you will hear the story of Sarajevo Jewish community existing for almost five centuries. The Old Jewish Temple is within the walking distance of Christian and Muslim religious objects. Today it hosts an important museum related to Balkan Jewish traditions and customs.
After the spot that says “Sarajevo Meeting of Cultures” the Sarajevo Free Walking Tour continues westward. Ferhadija street is connected to the arrival of the Habsburg monarchy. One of the iconic buildings on Ferhadija street is the Catholic Cathedral with the statue of Pope John Paul II. Also we will talk about Sarajevo roses and famous people that lived here.
Furthermore we will see the first modern hotel in Sarajevo and hear the stories of the first Waltz dance and celebrities that stayed here. Our recommendation is to drink Bosnian coffee and eat Sacher cake in this place where East meats West. Then the tour continues to the famous Latin Bridge, Franz-Ferdinand’s assassination site.
Most importantly the Free Walking Tour in Sarajevo is guided by passionate and young guides who are born here. They will be happy to show you even the secret spots of their town where most tourists wouldn’t go themselves.
