It is a very nice place to hang around, raising memories with the warm and old neighbourhood from the past. It is a small area which offers cosy and colorful souvenir shops, coffee houses and definitely good meal...It is a nice mosaic of the history and contemporary staff, nicely blended to comfort any visitor who seeks natural harmony and peace.

The place is really nice. It brings the flavor of the Middle East in Europe. The old market is picturesque and attractive for thoese that has never been in the Middle East.

It is a very good experience and please try to catch the free tour if you can, it will give you an overview IOC the city and you can decide afterwards what to visit deeply. The city center is small but all main attractions are near, I was very moved by the building left unrenovated just to remind people about... More

Not as charming as other European "old towns" but good nonetheless. Lot's of touristy junk shops. Many cafes to sit and just people watch.

This is where it all happens! Beautiful setting with wonderful little stores full of any kind of trinket you could wish for. Great places to eat, walk, people watch. Several places of worship and it's unique layout makes a true gem in Sarajevo's crown.

This site is undergoing renovation into a better museum. There is still plenty to see and read. Other rooms in the house has mock-ups of the tunnel, exhibits and a film show.

Europeans should look @ Sarajevo for democracy and diversity that way they would accept their own citizens with different religion beliefs .

Certainly worth taking a weekend to check out the city! The people are kind and warm, the food is good, and the nightlife is fun!

So much to see and do here. It would be even better if there were more places with no smoking signs (only found two, Sirove Strasty Smoothie and Coffee Bar and Franz and Sophie tea shop).
