Best places to visit in Sarajevo

Embedded within the heart of the Balkans, Sarajevo, the vibrant capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, is steeped in rich history and culture. From the remnants of the Ottoman Empire to the spark that ignited World War I, Sarajevo is a city where East meets West. For those ready to explore its treasures, here are the best places to visit, and don't forget to enhance your journey with the local expertise of Happytripz for unforgettable excursions.


  • The Old Bazaar: This historical and cultural center of the city dates back to the 15th century. With its cobbled streets and ancient architecture, Baščaršija is a hub for traditional crafts, cafés, and the famous Sarajevo Pigeon Square.
  • Sebilj Fountain: At the heart of Baščaršija Square, the wooden fountain is an iconic symbol of Sarajevo. It's said that those who drink its water will certainly return to the city.

Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque

  • As one of the most important Islamic structures in the Balkans, the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque, built in the 16th century, remains an oasis of peace and spiritual reflection within the bustling Baščaršija.

Sarajevo Tunnel Museum

  • This intriguing museum presents a vivid part of recent history: the Tunnel of Hope, which became Sarajevo's lifeline during the 1990s siege. Visitors can explore the remains of the tunnel, which played a crucial role in the city’s survival.

Sarajevo City Hall (Vijećnica)

  • The City Hall, originally constructed to serve as the town hall during Austro-Hungarian times, was magnificently restored after the wars. Known for its stunning pseudo-Moorish style, Vijećnica stands as a monument to the city's perseverance and cultural fusion.

Sarajevo Olympic Bobsleigh and Luge Track

  • The remnants of the 1984 Winter Olympic Games, the bobsleigh and luge track atop Mount Trebević is now a graffiti-covered monument to past glories and can be visited as part of a historical remembrance.

Latin Bridge

  • This significant bridge was the site of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which directly led to the start of WWI. Today, it stands as a stark reminder, and you can learn about this event in detail at the nearby museum.

The Yellow Fortress (Žuta Tabija)

  • For a panoramic vista of Sarajevo, head to the Yellow Fortress, especially at sunset. This old Ottoman-era fortification gives you a vista that is truly picture-worthy.

Svrzo's House

  • Step back in time at Svrzo's House, an Ottoman-era dwelling that provides insight into the lifestyle of a well-off Muslim family in the 18th century. Learn about Bosnian architecture and traditions that have been meticulously preserved.

With its layers of history and buzzing city life, these are just a few highlights of Sarajevo's eclectic charm.
