Detailed description
Old Town 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 the busiest part of Sarajevo is called Bascarsija where the old 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 on 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 center of the city. At the time it was the biggest 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 center in Sarajevo “Bezistan” – 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. Thereofre 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 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, you will be able to see the first modern hotel in Sarajevo and hear the stories about the first Waltz dance and celebrities that stayed here. Our recommendation is to drink Bosnian coffee and Sacher cake in the famous Viennese Cafe, within the hotel. Lastly, the Tour ends on the notorious Latin Bridge known throughout the world as the place where the WWI began.

My friend and I joined the tour last minute because it was free and we didn’t know our way around Sarajevo at all. It was amazing! Best experience of our trip! The guide’s English was completely fluent. The information he shared taught me a lot and was interesting too. After the tour ended we knew our way around enough that we could visit many places again and enjoy eating local food thanks to our guide’s suggestions. Wonderful experience!

We booked the tour last minute but Amila was able to come. It was a walking tour but it was not tiring because there were so many things to see. Amila was knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour very much. We had our 3 year old with us and Amila was patient and did not rush through the tour.
