December

During December you can enjoy the festive, holiday atmosphere in Sarajevo. Once again, the Sarajevo Holiday Market will be held, but on a new address - Hastahana Skate park, from 7. 12. 2016 to 14. 01. 2017. This manifestation celebrates all of the major holidays that are celebrated this time of year in BiH's capital city – Jewish Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year....

The city of Sarajevo will  ring in the New Year at Trg BiH and there certainly won't be a shortage of great parties in some of the restaurants around town or on the surrounding mountains.

December is actually the perfect month to visit the mountains around Sarajevo: Bjelašnica, Jahorina, Igman and Trebević. Those who love winter sports can take in some of their favorite activities, and those who aren't particularly into snow sports can enjoy a stroll in the fresh air.

If you make your way up to Jahorina, we recommend that you drop by Ognjište Ethno Gallery (on the road which runs between Pale and Jahorina), where you can find unique and lovely handicrafts, inspired by Orthodox traditions.
