5 Minutes Before Tour Event Time
We will start our free tour in front of Sarajevo City Hall. Beautiful building from the Austro-Hungarian period. It was made at the entrance of the city and opened in 1896. It was build in a Pseudo-Moorish style. Unfortunately like many important buildings in Sarajevo, during the Siege of Sarajevo, it was destroyed. It was renovated in 2014, 100 years after the beginning of the first World War.
Next we will visit Baščaršija square, the heart of old town Sarajevo and explore the ottoman quarter and the oriental charm of cobbled streets.
It is one of the oldest and most valuable cultural and historical monuments in Sarajevo. It was built in 1539 in the Byzantine style. The church was destroyed and rebuilt many times, but always retaining an authentic appearance. The current appearance of the church is from the 18th century. The church complex consists of the museum and the cellar, with wines from Herzegovina, the southern part of the country. The museum contains a valuable collection of icons, transcripts, and more than 700 exhibits. It is one of the most important Orthodox museums in the world.
We visit the Jewish quarter as well as mosques and churches in an attempt to understand better the European Jerusalem and the multi-confessional essence of Sarajevo. First is Gazi Husrev-bey Mosque.
After the mosque, we will visit the Jewish quarter.
Later on, we will visit the Cathedral of Jesus’ Sacred Heart. After visiting all three multi-confessional religious objects you will see how they are just 100 square meters apart and that is what makes Sarajevo so special.
We’ll explore the Latin bridge, next to which the Austrian archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated and WWI began consequently.
