This place is a landmark of Sarajevo. It's famous as a meeting point and fountain. People says if you drink a water from this fountain that you'll come back in Sarajevo. I did.

Well organized main square. Many little lanes to walkabout and check out some local cuisines and buy some local souvenirs. Love that copper handmade street which showcase lots of local cultural aspect of creativity. It is also worthwhile to stopby any coffee shop and try out the Bosnian coffee (~1 euro)served with the copper cup and coffee maker.

One very interesting buildings. What impressed me, the amount of pigeons around the fountain. There you can buy chips and corn but to feed the pigeons.

Sebilj Brunnen is an ornate and highly decorative Ottoman fountain in the heart of Baščaršija. The fountain is hugely popular and was a favoured photo opportunity for passers-by at the time I visited. It is one of many attractions to be seen in the city.

The signature of Ottomans in Sarajevo. And also the meeting point of people in town. And it starts the Bascarsija

... if you are visiting the rebuilt library or the Bascarsija in Sarajevo. Sit in one of the coffee Shops on the place around and have a look at the fountain. No better way to relax

Good hangout place and easily to meet new travelers. During the day it is normaly infested by pigeons and people feeding them. But closer to the evening its just a good place to hang around.

Sebilj Brunnen is a wooden Ottoman style fountain. The fountain itself is pretty though not the original. However, it is central in a must see square in the beautiful old town of Sarajevo. It adds to the square and is definitely worth a visit. It is also a very populated area and proves to be a fun place to linger,... More

Oriental wooden construction stands in the middle of pedestrian square near the tram station and at the eastern side of Baščaršija. It is meeting point and place where you can feed pigeons. Nothing special but still one of the known symbols of Sarajevo. Good for pictures, postards, small decorated souvenirs.
