Parking in Sarajevo (17 Replies)
Are there any guarded parking spots close to Bascarsija? Maybe around Skenderija or Military Command (Bjelave side). Also which hotel has a garage? How safe is to spend night at Ilidza's hotels?

There is floor parking at Bascarsija square. When you drive from Vijecnica/National library on the tram tracks go first turn right, you will see traffic's character sing and bilboard with sign for parking. The parking is with lift in the first house after turning right.
