October in Sarajevo brings autumn at its most beautiful, plus it's an ideal time for a visit in nature, which is adorned with a whole palette of wondrous autumn colors.


We suggest that you take in some of the well-known Sarajevo picnic spots, such as Barice and Čavljak, where you can enjoy wonderful nature and try some of the culinary specialties on offer at the mountain lodges.

The most important event set for October is the International Theater Festival MESS. Since October in Sarajevo has plenty to do with the theater, we recommend a visit to Despić House, an annex of the Museum of Sarajevo, which houses exhibits that tell the story of a prominent, urban family in Sarajevo during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Actually, it was in Despić House where the first theatrical performances were put on in Sarajevo.
