This fountain was a very nice piece to photo/ sit around. People call it pigeon square for obvious reasons there are hundreds of them, if thats what you are into you can buy bird feed and take your chances

During the day you barely notice but at night with amazing light it’s make a perfect spot to take selfies. Due to the location is a really busy street but you have always a chance to take photos and try the running water.

Have been to this several times and the scene is just like the pictures. The pigeons are there in force and readily accept for food offerings.

The fountain is the focal point for locals, as well for the tourists. So vivid, and a bit crowded. Excellent place to start your walk through the city, since it is in the core of Baščaršija.

The Sebilj (fountain) in the square sometimes called "Pigeon Square" is an iconic symbol of Sarajevo and probably the most-visited and - photographed place in the city. Except in the morning, it is usually crowded it people and the fountain usually has people around it...More

It's a small square but quite beautiful. Surrounded by pigeons. I had my hair cut at the barber next door.
