Top events in Sarajevo: January 2-8

The craziest night is behind us, and after enjoying all the parties, we will start the first week of 2020 with a more relaxed rhythm, and here we recommend the most interesting events for the period January 2 to 8.


The ninth edition of the Coca-Cola Sarajevo Holiday Market at Hastahana Park will run until January 13, and besides the great local products and souvenirs, there are some special foods, fun for the entire family and excellent gigs by different groups, including: the Mujo Šantić Orchestra, the Makao Band, the Selam Tufekčić Band, Blavors....

If you love classical music, don’t miss SPKD Prosvjeta’s traditional Christmas concert at the National Theater on January 4.

January is a terrific time to visit some city galleries, so be sure to view the interesting exhibits at GSU Brodac, Zvono Cafe Gallery, Vijećnica…, and we recommend the long-awaited film Dolittle at Cinema City Multiplex for film lovers.

We recommend that nature lovers visit the mountains around Sarajevo and attend some performances at the hotels and restaurants, and there will be plenty of ice skating rinks in Sarajevo during this period, so don’t miss a chance to enjoy this sport.

Here you can have a look at the most interesting events taking place over the next seven days:
