Type: Around Sarajevo
It’s hard not to notice Trebević, with its distinctive peak towering over the south side of Sarajevo.
Many generations of Sarajevans used to visit this area by cable car, which ran from Bistrik to the Olympic Bobsled tracks. The cable car was devastated during the war. Today, the area is accessible by foot or by a 20-minute car/taxi ride along the road to Jahorina via Vraca to reach Brus.
With ample parking, a picnic area and several restaurants, Brus is an ideal starting and nishing point for exploring Trebević. From here you can start your 500-meter ascent to the peak of Trebević (1,629 meters). The trail is well-marked and it takes about 2 hours of great hiking through pine and spruce forests with beautiful views of Romanija and Bukovik Mountains.
At the top, you will see Sarajevo, all the outlying towns and villages and plenty of stunning mountain ranges. Explore this great area which is so close, and yet so far away from the busy life of Sarajevo!
