Sarajevo walking tour details

Sarajevo Walking Tour will make you feel like you’re walking through the centuries

At the beginning of our Sarajevo Walking Tour, we will see the Old Orthodox Church, one of the oldest religious objects in Sarajevo. Its archaic foundations are unique and reminiscent of early Christian churches. artistic creations of the medieval goldsmiths together with other valuable collections can be found in the museum next to the church.

The oldest and busiest part of Sarajevo is called Bascarsija where the ancient streets intersect to make an elaborate maze of crafts, food, and coffee. Consequently, the most recognizable landmark of Sarajevo is Sebilj, a wooden fountain located in Baščaršija square. The legend says that drinking water from here means that you will definitely come back to Sarajevo. You can try testing this yourself during our Sarajevo tours.

Besides, walking through the old town you will learn about Gazi Husrev-bey and the mosque he built in the city centre. At the time it was the most prominent object in the country. Nearby one of the most beautiful mosques in Bosnia you can find a unique Clock Tower. Most certainly, it is famous for showing an unusual standard of time for the modern world. You will get to know why. Moreover, we will walk through the oldest shopping centre in Sarajevo “Bezistan” – an old bazaar from the Ottoman period.

Sarajevo City Hall is the most representative Austro-Hungarian-era building in Bosnia. Since 1949 the building was the National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Today it is once again the seat of the local government.

In the 16th century, Sarajevo welcomed thousands of Jewish settlers who reached the Ottoman empire escaping the persecution in the Iberian peninsula. Living in Sarajevo alongside Muslims and Christians the new inhabitants of the city were reminded of their ancient homeland. Therefore they gave Sarajevo a new name, Little Jerusalem. The Old Jewish Temple is located in the Old Town and it houses a valuable collection of exhibits pertaining to Jewish traditions and customs in the Balkans.

After the line where East meets West in Sarajevo, our local Sarajevo walking tour guide will continue in the direction of the modern part of the city connected to the arrival of the Habsburg monarchy. On this Sarajevo tour, you will see the Sacred Heart Cathedral and the statue of Pope John Paul II who visited Bosnia two times. All the while our Sarajevo guides will try to uncover many hidden gems for you and recommend things to do in Sarajevo, known only to the locals.

Also, on the Sarajevo walking tour, you will be able to see the first modern hotel in Sarajevo and hear the stories about the first Waltz dance and the celebrities that stayed here. Our recommendation is to drink Bosnian coffee and Sacher cake in the famous Viennese Café, within the hotel. Lastly, the Tour ends on the notorious Latin Bridge known throughout the world as the place where WWI began.

We did a walking tour of Sarajevo Old Town with Ahmed and the Day trip to Mostar with Anna. Both staff members were very knowledgeable and super friendly. We learnt and saw a lot on both tours and would definitely recommend!

Haris was an excellent tour guide. Very personable. Given the complexity of the history he explained with such ease. His insight was amazing. The tour was very nicely paced and although a lot in it, it did not feel rushed. Haris shared many personal stories which I really enjoyed. Highly recommend.

I highly recommend going on the tour with Armina (Arna), she was a fabulous guide! With a wealth of information! She took her time, I didn’t feel rushed and she explained so much of the history (very knowledgeable) she will give you a good understanding of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Sarajevo specifically! I went back to many places she recommended on my own! She recommended some of the best eats! Thank you Arna for making the tour such a pleasure! Don’t think twice…. GO WITH HER!
