The beginning of January also marks the beginning of the winter break from school, with the youngest Sarajevans and their parents hoping to make the most of this month by spending as much time as possible up on the mountains around Sarajevo.


During the winter period, the Sarajevo Olympic beauties - Jahorina, Trebević, Igman and Bjelašnica - offer visitors countless options for an active holiday, as well as the opportunity to relax in some of the mountain cabins, complete with culinary specialities and a crackling fire in the fireplace.

The Sarajevo Holiday Market will run until mid-January. This festive holiday manifestation takes place right in the center of town, and it's here that you can buy gifts for those who are dearest to you, as well as have some fun during the excellent performances given by musicians and other equally impressive entertainers.
