The cruel story of the civil war is hard to take in, and hard to communicate to younger children. The tunnel museum makes a part of it (the Sarajevo siege) tangible and is very well constructed, seems factually balanced and makes it easier to grasp the visible signs around the city afterwards.

We reached the tunnel via a tour bus. The introductory film somewhat explains the building and necessity of the tunnel during the siege; however, the insight of a local guide who could address military strategies as well as local survival would enhance the visit. In addition to the tunnel is a small museum. I heard a guide suggest to his... More

I saw the war tunnel/tunnel of hope on a guided tour of Sarajevo, and it was one of my favorite parts. It was both sad to see what the bosnians went through, yet inspirational to see how they stayed positive and got through it all. The fact that our guide escaped in this very tunnel as a child during the... More

Everyone should go and see! People survived due to the existence of the Tunnel! 25 meters is left for tourist to see how it is to walk under the ground .

Our guide lived in Sarajevo during the war. Great battle line maps and video of snipers in action and shelling of the city. Optional to walk through part of the tunnel. On way to tunnel, guide pointed out buildings damaged by the shelling. Very sad piece of history, but glad I took tour. MH, Seattle

Sarajevo War Tunnel is the tunnel, from where the habitants of the city, during the siege of Sarajevo by Serbian troops in the Balkan War (it was the only place, where this is possible), could get out and enter to the city. Also then it was possible brought food, water and medicines inside the city. Now, it is the best... More

Great historical place. Very emotional and very touching to see the tunnel and the museum that shows the war. You can watch a documentary video that was filmed during the war and see the Muslim woman who gave her home to help the army. She gave them water and helped them very much. It's a great place .. recommended very... More

A very interesting sight. Do not miss this if if you are interested in history. A little difficult to get to if you do not have transportation, but you can take a taxi or use public transportation to get close.
