This fountain stand in the start of the old town and you cannot mist it. And as you can see there are some pigeons living there.

The fountain is located in an open square, nicknamed "Pigeon Square" due to the large number of pigeons who get fed there by locals and tourists. For many this is the starting and/or meeting point to explore the old town.

Nice to have an option to refill your water bottle after a day of exploring the old city of Sarajevo.

Sarajevo is a stunning place. This fountain is symbolic of the city, as its in all the postcards. It's nothing super special but nice to wander in the little square before exploring the old town. The water is fresh and tasty.

Nice original old fountain in the square at Bascarsija in old town Sarajevo. Seems to be a place to congregate for locals and tourists alike. Good photo opportunity but once you've seen it......

The fountain is in the town square. Surrounded by local shops as well as local restaurants, one must spend time there!

This is a water fountain that played a major part during the "homeland" war in Sarajevo. Great for night time photos. Be aware of the beggars and pigeons.

Sebilj Brunnen (Fountain) has a long history, and its water was vital in the 1900's war. Sebilj Brunnen (Fountain) is easily visible, and is well worth the time to visit and reflect.
