This would have to be the symbol of Sarajevo! If you don't see it when you go, then you're missing something! People feed the pigeons and stop to have their photos taken, always busy! Of a night time it is very pretty! Make sure you stop by when in Sarajevo!

I just love love love Sarajevo with all my heart & Bascarsija Fountain is such a symbol of the city. It's right where the Turkish "old town" area starts, with it's cobblestone streets & trinket shops. I had Turkish Coffee right next to the fountain & just watched the people go by. Many people feed the pigeons, & there are... More

A symbolic heart of old Sarajevo, not so much the fountain but the people that gather around it. A great spot to sit back, relax, risk that dark, deadly brew that masquerades as coffee here and engage with the fascinating locals and their tales both happy and sad.

Very interesting and rarely seen wooden fountain located at Baščaršija square. A place where many tourists stop by to take pictures.

Great attraction to get one's bearing. Always a lot of activity around this fountain. Close to my hotel so it was helpful. Beautiful at night. Pigeons all around during the day. Very well known attraction in Sarajevo and especially Olde Town.

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.
