Winter tourist and holiday season in Sarajevo means the opening of the Sarajevo Holiday Market (SHM), a place with many attractions that draw visitors of all generations. The Seventh Annual SHM will run from December 6th, 2017 to January 13th, 2018 at skate park Hastahana and in front of BBI Center.
Since it resonates with a real holiday atmosphere, the Market has already become a traditional site that Sarajevans and visitors gladly visit over the 35 days that it is held. With more than 30 small cabins and stands, the Market provides a daily offering of souvenirs and products crafted by artisans, all of which come with a certificate of Original Sarajevo Quality, as well as other handicrafts, books, toys, cosmetics, food and drinks.
The Children’s Park is available to youngsters and includes the Argeta Children’s Pavilion, Mini Luna Park and Coca-Cola Santa House.
Free Addiko Skating Rink is operational in Hastahana and it covers 400 m2.
Visitors enjoy daily cultural events at the PAN Winter Pub, with concerts, song-filled evenings, stand-up comedy, promotions and food tastings.
The Market Annex, which is located at the square in front of BBI Center, is preparing an open-air venue with cabins with items for sale.
Sarajevo Holiday Market makes the holiday period in Sarajevo more attractive and marks the Catholic Christmas and New Year and the Orthodox Christmas and New Year by offering an assortment of local products. The Market was started with the wish of wanting to bring a full winter experience back to Olympic Sarajevo and has been patterned after Christmas markets that can be found in almost every city in Western Europe.
