That fountain has located at the starting point of Bascarsija and the center of town. Its looks very nice, at around of fountain you can feed the small birds and you can see the beautiful Bosnian mountains. The architecture style of the fountain looks very authentic

It is really wonderful. Sebilj is symbol of the country. This Ottoman-style wooden fountain, named Sebilj is in the center of old town of Sarajevo. It is completed in 1753. There is a replica of Sarajevo's Sebilj in St. Louis, Missouri in United States of America gifted by the Bosnian community to the city of St. Louis for its 250th... More

It has positioned as a reference point in the main square in the heart of historic Bascasija. This place literally invaded by tourists but also people of Sarajevo, a small and modest fountain but undoubtedly historical symbol of the city. Not to be missed.

If you find yourself in Bascarsija, which is the heart of old Sarajevo, you cannot miss Sebilj fountain. Old, with beautiful wooden carvings. People and kids like to sit around it, drink it's cold water... Here, you will find dozens of pigeons that will land on your hands and eat from your palms. One of the city symbols. It is... More

I walked past the Sebilj public water fountain as I strolled down the Baščaršija quarter of Sarajevo on Sunday, 11th August, 2014. Without any doubt, the Sebilj is the symbol of the city of Sarajevo. It is featured on souvenirs, billboards and even on restaurant menus! That is another reason why replicas of the Sebilj were built in Belgrade, Serbia... More

It is at the entrance to the old town, and so you can't really miss it. It is interesting to see, pretty when lit up and many people were using it as a photo back drop.

Great place to visit and walk around. This is in the middle of the Old Town. Wall to wall shops, restaurants, and pedestrians in the area. Lots of locally made gifts and souvenirs. We were in town for two weeks and went here 6-8 times.

Sarajevo used to have dozens of these fountains. Now this one stands pretty much alone, but as a very recognizable symbol of Sarajevo. It is a well-known meeting-point in the old part of the city. The nice proportions and the detailed woodwork make it a tourist- and photographers-magnet. Also, people feed pigeons here all the time, and if you are... More

Prior to coming to Sarajevo I read about the fountain and its importance in the history of the city. I feared not being able to find it, yet there it was awaiting our arrival as the centerpiece of the Old Town.
