The meeting point in Bascarsija. You can find many shops here. Take photo when you are here with pigeons. The tram station is just one step away from here.

Staple of Baščaršija square and Sarajevo's old town staple, Sebilj is a place where everyone comes to take a picture as it encompasses their visit to Sarajevo. Sebilj's square is frequented by tourists...and pigeons that come to be fed by corn sold by local vendor....More

It is nice to hang out here and be entertained by pigeons at this piazza. There are many shops around selling souvenirs, fruits, food. The tram station is also located at the opposite side.

This is a great looking Ottoman fountain that is good for a photo, meet people at and to feed the many, many pigeons. Worthwhile.

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...More

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
