If you're interested in knowing how Sarajevo made it against an army on their own you should visit this tunnel and see it for your self.

It's not easy to get here unless you drive or are with a tour. We took Tram #3 to the end of the line, and then walked about two miles to reach the small neighborhood at the edge of the airport runway. Coming back, we...More

Reaching and finding the tunnel is an adventure by itself, without internet or Taxi. impressive to visit such an important remmant of the war. However, the context was quite hard to grasp. The english descriptions were scarce and often misspelled. Some prior background knowledge about...More

The museum itself is overpriced as for BiH (you need to pay 10€ for 2 tickets). And for this price you’re getting 20 meters of tunnel and poor war museum (there is much better around). Also they accept only Bosnian cash. Nearby there is a...More

The Tunnel of Hope was an underground tunnel built by the Bosnian Army to supply the city with food and supplies. The museum is very informative and there is lots of video footage to enjoy too.

Very interesting place and a must go in Sarajevo. They have a video room to introduce you the story and then you get to go into part of the tunnel.

Trying to choose between Sarajevo funky tours and Toorico tours for the 1/2 day tour to the war tunnels. Please help me decide.

They both are complete tours. Just wondering if anyone has taken either and what their thoughts are.

We would like to do the tunnel tour but wonder which company has the most comprehensive tour. It's confusing because there is such a wide price range and tours last from 2-5 hours. Which company would you recommend for this tour? Many thanks.

We went with Meetbosnia.com and the tour was amazing. Best to reach him by phone. The length depends on whether it is just the tunnel or a complete war tour including a visit to the bobsled track and other historic points. The longer tour is definitely a better experience imo.
One Day in Sarajevo? (3 Replies)
Hi, I would appreciate advice. My boyfriend and I are planning a trip with 3 or 4 nights in Bucharest [1 full day trip], 1 night in Brasov, 5 nights in Belgrade [3 full day trips] and 2 or 3 nights in Sarajevo. If we do 4 nights in Bucharest, we would only have 2 nights [1 full day] in Sarajevo. Do you think it is possible to see Bascarsija, Gallery 11/07/95, the Latin Bridge, The Eternal Flame and the Sarajevo War Tunnel in one day? Thanks, Katt

You can see the first 5 but fitting the tunnel in on the same day might be tough. It's a tough decision. On the one hand Bucharest is a much larger city and therefore can probably use the time to explore it. On the other hand, Sarajevo is a much more immediately charming city, and if I had to pick I'd put the extra night in Sarajevo.
