Great insight into life during the siege. Not a happy place but well worth a look. Would recommend this.

Seeing the tunnel and finding out the circumstances in which it was built really helps you understand the reality of the siege of Sarajevo. The determination, ingenuity, courage in the face of such risks is quite humbling. My visit was quite short, consisting of an introductory video (no sound commentary) plus a walk through a short section of the tunnel,... More

The war tunnel or in other words the tunnel of life, was an impressive part of our sarajevo trip. The video was infomative and the tunnel tells a lot about the horror of war. Must be seen.

if you are into war stories and history, you should visit this place. I recommend guided tour, as you will hear something about the place - how it was built, why and what purpose it had during the war.

Worth visiting with a guided tour. Located some ten kilometres from the centre. If you go alone you had better take a taxi.

If you are interested in the recent Bosnian war, you should not miss this visit. The tunnel itself is an interesting visit, but you have also the small exhibition, with devices, photos and a video of all what surrounded that moment in history. We could even talk to the people who built it and that was even better!

The tunnel marks the siege of Sarajevo in 1992-5 during the war then and has its valuable historic and educational value. This was a very good addition to my Balkans trip which was sight-seeing in the main. The local guide gave us a good informative talk in English during our tour and the short documentary film shown on the spot... More
