We were lucky enough to head to the Insider information office opposite the assassination site and ask for a walking tour of the Old Town. We were given Nermina as our guide and she was WONDERFUL. We got to see the special buildings of the Ottoman times, the temples and churches of the different faiths, the metal workers workshops, the... More

This is a lovely area of Sarajevo, lots of eating places, cafes, shops, hustle bustle, historical architecture, cobbled street. Take a seat and watch the world go by.

I very much liked the restaurants and shops that sold trinkets. The cobbled stone streets and alleys made you feel you were in the souks and do not forget to have Turkish Coffee and get your fortune told by experienced waiters.

This is one of my favorite old towns in Europe because of the mixture of eastern and western cultures and architectures. It creates a fascinating dynamic in this lively city.

sarajevo is one of my favourite places i have travelled. The old town is a treat to walk around in and see how very diverse sarajevo really is. walking around you can still see some of the damage from the brutal siege at sarajevo. If you get a chance to visit sarajevo and the old town i really recommend it
