Lovely pedestrian area. A bit crowded and most of the shops are the "usual suspects"...international brands that you'd find in any shopping mall anywhere. I wish there were more local vendors and shops highlighting the local market, but that is sadly to be expected in almost any big city now.

The eternal flame is pretty.

Starting where Saraci, (Bascarsija, old town), finishes. The architecture of the buildings change dramatically, like from Ottoman through Austro-Hungarian, to modern times, it is a wonderful, pedestrianised walk all the way to the eternal flame, (see review), and back again, we find it that enjoyable, full of street sellers and buskers. Definitely a must for all visitors.

This street is unique above all as in this street East (Ottoman heritage) meets West (Austro-Hungarian architecture), something you can't see in other European capital cities. This is street where one of the worst massacres have occurred in Sarajevo during 4 year siege. There you will see marks of it, those Sarajevo Roses which symbolize victim's blood as painful side of it and red petals symbolize a rose petals as positive side. This is street with lots of buildings done under strong influence of city Wienna, decorations and pastel colors are matching perfectly. There is also and lovely Cathedral, one of the most beautiful city markets I have seen ''Gradska Trznica'' which contains that good and well known Greek style, Ottoman Mosque, Orthodox Church and just a bit far and Synagogue built in Pseudo-Moorish style. And yeah many great places to eat, drink and shopping! Vivid!

After the break-up of Yugoslavia the name of the street was changed from Vaso Miskin (Yugoslav partizan leader) to Ferhadije after the mosque of the same name at the end of the street towards the bazar. Most of the street however is lined with buildings from the communist and Austro-Habsburg periods. Some of the latter like the Apteka Stari Grad near the Catholic church and another nicely decorated house next to the Norwegian embassy are worth a closer look.

The first time I heard of Vaso Miskin street was in 1992 when a shell fired by the VRS (Bosnian Serb army) hit a line of people in front of a bakery. 26 innocent civilians were killed. The first massacre of the Bosnian war we heard of in the West to be followed by many more.

There's no way for you to not find yourself on this street while sightseeing Sarajevo.

It's the main point for markets and shops. Whenever I think about this city, this street is the first thing on my mind.

This is a bustling street used even more by the locals than the tourists. Lots of street food and gelato (sladoled).

Ferhadija Street is the longest pedestrianised street in Sarajevo with the majority of the buildings along the thoroughfare built during the time of the Austro-Hungarian rule. It is a hugely popular street and was busy at the time I visited,

This is a lovely pedestrian walkway that connects the Bascarsija with the other parts of Sarajevo. There is a wide selection of restaurants along the way. During the Christmas season, it goes right by an ice skating rink.

I couldn’t have been happier having my hotel right on the pedestrian street… It is the perfect place right in the middle of the action where I love to be… Shops and cafés and every kind of church, temple, and mosque can be found right at the crossroads! I love the ability to run right past the eternal flame down to the park and back the other way towards the cemetery and all the sites in between... I also love the good clothing shops and was surprised at the great selection and found one of my favorite pair of shoes and winter coat there which brings find memories of Bosnia whenever I wear them… I could hardly get enough of the Bosnian coffee...I will definitely be back!

This place reminds me a bit of the bazaar in Istanbul, but smaller, quieter, cleaner, with less aggressive vendors. It is a charming area of shops, cafes, and restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised to find a place with so much middle eastern flair in a European city.
