Explore the Top 10 attractions in Sarajevo with Coach Charter Europe - your charter bus company
Coach charter Europe welcomes you to Sarajevo, the compact capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, lies in the middle of the Dinaric Mountains on the Miljacka River. Currently the capital of independent Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo is an ancient town that has had a fair share of historic events. It experienced the seminal moment that ignited the outbreak of the First World War, the years of communist rule as part of Yugoslavia, and its own bloody civil war in the early 1990s. This is recognised as a city that is respectful of diversity and promotes the peaceful coexistence between Christians, Muslims and Jews. Check out our list of the best things to see and do in Sarajevo. Sarajevo is one of the most underrated cities in Europe. Sarajevo is marked by its sad history and is a true testimony to the past centuries. But that is precisely why the city is one of the most impressive cultural assets in the Balkans today.

Coach Charter Europe can propose top 10 sites to be part of your itinerary for Sarajevo as follows:

1. Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque

Constructed in 1532, the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque in Sarajevo's old town is the largest historic mosque in the world and the center of the Islamic community of the region. It is representative of the Ottoman architecture of which the city is well known, and it is available to visitors to look around. Outside is a lovely open courtyard with a fountain for ritual washing, and the main entrance is decorated with intricate Islamic designs and patterns. This has a variety of domes, which are a traditional characteristic of Ottoman mosques rather than of Middle East architectural designs. While much of it was destroyed during the civil war, the rebuilding of the mosque started as a high priority in 1996, despite its centrality to the city's culture. 

2. Latin Bridge

Some of the most prominent events that took place in Sarajevo was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, an incident that triggered the start of the First World War. The assassination took place only by the Latin Bridge, one of the oldest Ottoman bridges in the city that is believed to have been built in the mid-16th century. The bridge itself is low, with three archways and a pointed peak in the middle. At the northern end of the bridge, where the assassination took place, there is a plaque marking the incident, which is somewhat understated; however, during the Yugoslavian period, the plaque was almost praised because of the support of the Serb elite for the actions of the Bosnian-Serb assassin, Gavrilo Princip.

3. Kovači Memorial Cemetery

Part of Sarajevo's most recent past is the horrific and violent civil war of the early 1990s. Sarajevo was one of the main battlegrounds between the Serb and Bosnian armies, including a siege that lasted almost four years (more than both the sieges of Leningrad and Stalingrad). The Kovači Memorial Cemetery is specifically named for Bosnians who were lost during the siege while defending themselves against Serb aggressors, and is thus also known as the Martyr's Cemetery. Also buried in the cemetery is the first president of independent Bosnia, Alija Izetbegovic. Nearby is a hill (the 'yellow fortress') overlooking the cemetery, a spectacular yet often eerie place to watch the sunset over the area.

4. Sarajevo Tunnel Museum

An integral part of the survival of Bosnian citizens of Sarajevo during the civil war was the Sarajevo tunnel, which served as a lifeline for food, aid, money, arms and sometimes people in and out of the city when it was under siege. It was built in May 1992 by the Bosnian army, when all roads in and out of the city were blocked by fighting the Serb forces in order to link up with the UN-controlled territory on the other side of the Serbs. Today, the entrance to the tunnel is a museum, so tourists can access a small section of the tunnel to see what it was like. The museum is not overdone and still has a sense of rugged, which allows people to appreciate the tunnel for what it really was, rather than just making it a tourist attraction.

5. Eat some Ćevapi

Poneyevapi is minced meat shaped into cylinder sausage shapes that are served with fresh bread, raw onions and kajmak (similar to sour cream). Don't let yourself go of Bosnia & Herzegovina without trying this local delight! As an added bonus, you 're going to get a large portion of this deliciousness for just a few euros.

6. Sarajevo Town Hall

Zadar's cathedral of St Anastasia dates back to the 12th century is rich and impressive cathedral in the old town of Zadar. The altar has a marble sarcophagus holding the relics of St Anastasia, while the choir comprises extravagantly engraved stalls. 

7. Peruse the Coppersmiths’ Shops

As you would imagine, Old Town caters to visitors, and you're going to have your choice of shops to buy beautiful hand-picked copper souvenirs. Nevertheless, a discerning eye can say that not all things are made equal. If you're looking for a nice, high-quality souvenir, be sure to stop at Ismet I Ismir's Coppersmith store. 

8. Olympic Bobsled

The Sarajevo bobsled is also used as a depiction of the juxtaposition of the recent history of the region. Sarajevo flourished in the 1980s and hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics, only to find itself in the midst of a dispute a decade later during the Bosnian war. Since then, the city has continued its revitalisation and has again become a popular tourist destination.

9. Grab a coffee at Caffe Tito

The communist style café, Caffe Tito, is one of Sarajevo's most unique attractions. In reality, Tito 's long rule is viewed in a positive light by many Bosnians – however, the chaos and power vacuum created by his death was one of the causes of the civil war. Tito has managed to establish a peaceful coexistence between the various cultures and ethnicities of Yugoslavia. The coffee walls are filled with a man's pictures, and scattered across the tables are newspaper stories that record his life. For an rare taste of Yugoslavian nostalgia, take a ride to Caffe Tito.

10. Old Town

Step across the Latin Bridge to Bascarsija Square (also known as Pigeon Square), which is a perfect starting point for exploring Sarajevo's Old City. The historic Old Town is friendly and beautiful, and has parallels to one of my other favorite European towns, Krakow (but with mosques)!
