November

While November brings cooler weather and somewhat shorter days, one can still enjoy nature in its wonderful autumn colors. A favorite place for those who love outdoor activities is Mt. Igman, which is about a 30-minute drive from the center of town.

The event of the month is the 20th Annual Jazz Fest Sarajevo, which will run from November 2 to 6. Jazz Fest is the very reason why renowned jazz artists make regular visits to Sarajevo and the festival serves as a true platform for presenting interesting local and regional jazz interpreters, as well as top musicians in related genres.

If you're a music lover, then November is the perfect time to visit the Sevdah Art House, which is dedicated to sevdalinka -- traditional urban love songs, specific to Bosnia and Herzegovina. There's also the museum, surrounded by the wonderful atmosphere of the renovated Great Daire (a storehouse dating from the Ottoman period), with its rich collection of items which tell the story of sevdah, while also presenting the most famous sevdah interpreters.
