A sad war memorial

The First place you should visit the understand how the civilians are effected by a city siege. Moreover this war was in Europe between 1990-1995, not so far away from Europeans.

The location itself is shocking enough. The fact that it existed at all is in itself is mind boggling. The tunnel was constructed in a neighborhood as a way to get life's necessities to the people. The memorial has artifacts as well as a video to present life during the Balkans war. Enough of the tunnel remains to give visitors... More

What can you say about this that has'n been said already. Is a bit far from the center (taxi would be around 20e), but totally worth the visit to learn what happened during the war and to not forget it.

Watch the video on the function of this tunnel and how it was the life-line for the Bosnians during that time

This place shows you the atrocities the people of Sarajevo had to endure during the city siege. The lady who ran our hostel/homestay took us here and we were all very moved by her story and the informative displays shown at the War Tunnel. Very touching. A must see when visiting Sarajevo.

Even my little children were engaged for more than an hour here. You get to see the house in a regular neighborhood next to the airport where the tunnel was that helped bring supplies in and out of the closed off city during the war. In addition, the docents that were there are amazing. They show actual footage of people... More

Grim but very interesting. A must for anybody interested in history! A 15 min taxi ride from the city centre, I would suggest asking the Taxi to pick you up after 90 mins or so as there is no public transport in the vicinity.

We were there a part of our Siege tour with funky tours. That made it a special experience. The tunnel, it's surroundings and especcialy the history make this a almost must see in Serajevo. The war is still such a big part of the current life.

Almost a nondescript house on the far side of the airport runway, the bullet holes still showing like many others in this country of contrasts but it hides a secret, a secret hidden so well from those that espoused the genocide of the Bosnian people. Being an ordinary home, there's not a lot of space for everything that could have... More

You got the feel of how The Sarajevans struggled with the siege. It is left raw, grenade holes where people died and you can walk along a short preserved part of the tunnel. We used Yasmin Sarajevo Tours his wife runs the Tourist Info, you need to be driven there, no public transport. He also took us to the ruined... More
