Old town is so welcoming and one feels like they are a part of history walking through it. There are many mosques within and Catholic and Orthodox churches, the Jewish museum. One can't miss Old Town if they are visiting Saravejo. I highly recommend seeing this city.

We love wandering the streets and people watching. Besides the numerous souvenir vendors, we loved walking the smaller streets with the shops of seamstresses, tailors, shoemakers.

A beautiful, busy, lively and walkable area. With an abundant amount of restaurants, cafes and little shops, I walked around for hours without even realizing so much time had passed. My favorite part was enjoying a cup of coffee while people watching.

This is how it felt to me. Loved the bazaar, the restaurants and cafes. It has a great Ottoman feel to it.

I enjoyed strolling with my friend, browsing, having coffee and pastries, seeing attractions and enjoying everything! A great area to visit. We saw a gallery exhibiting historic cultural items. People looked so happy, with lots of families, couples and friends. All kinds of food is offered, plus souvenirs, crafts, postcards -- and best of all these amazing buildings from history.... More

Old Town is as named, old. It's also quaint, pleasant, historic and a fun place to walk around. There are shops with everything from regular souvenirs to jewelry to antiques.

I think it summed it up when I went into a bar just off the old town and asked the barman what was missing in the old town. He advised simply that it had no soul. Unlike the old towns I vised in Croatia there are plenty of cheap food places to visit but there simply does not seems any... More

Compact, full of history, sights, shops, hotels, and good restaurants. Wonderful to see this city pulling itself up after the incredibly horrific war and siege of the 1990's.
