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 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 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 centre 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 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.

A great introduction to Sarajevo

Group Traveller

My friends and I took this tour as soon as we arrived in Sarajevo: now we all agree that it was an essential element to dive into the spirit of this charming and unique city. Edin guided us through some of the most significant spots of the old city, telling us insights about people and places. The same day the agency also organized an event focused on traditional sevdah music, offering Bosnian coffee and sweets. Finally, the agency provided us plenty of suggestions about food, local craftsmanship and other sites in Sarajevo. We definitely reccommend Meet Bosnia Tours!

Fascinating tour

Family Traveller

We had a private tour in Sarajevo Old Town with a fantastic guide Arna. It was fascinating although hard to listen about the tragic history of Sarajevo and Bosnia. We loved our guide, who had deep and authentic knowledge and showed us the city from the side we would never be able to see by ourselves. She had more than 2 hours for us, we could prolong the tour as much as we wished. I really recommend the agency and our guide Arna.
