  • If you’d like to learn more about the events taking place in Yugoslavia at the beginning of the 1990s, and the longest-running siege of any city in modern history, this tour is a great place to start.

    The experienced local guides will help you better understand the rich history of Sarajevo and the entire Balkan region. You’ll find out what it was like to live in Yugoslavia, you’ll hear about the effects of the war and you’ll gain an understanding of the bigger picture surrounding the tragic events that took place during the 1990s.

    The tour starts with a visit to Žuta Tabija, which offers a wonderful panoramic view of the whole city. Then you’ll visit the Zetra Olympic Complex, the pride of Sarajevo and one of major venues when the city hosted the 1984 Winter Olympic Games. After that you’ll see the nearby cemetery, the final resting place for the defenders of Sarajevo, and hear the touching story of the “Sarajevo Romeo and Juliet.”

    Then the tour will take you down Sniper Alley, the most dangerous street in Sarajevo during the Siege. You’ll pass Holiday Hotel (formerly Holiday Inn), which is where members of the international press stayed while covering the war in BiH.

    The tour will also take you to one of Sarajevo’s most popular museums – the famous Tunnel of Hope, which was the only way out of Sarajevo during the Siege. You will hear about how the tunnel was built, as well as many other war stories, all of which are sure to stay with you for a lifetime. The last stop is Mt. Trebević and the remnants of the Olympic bobsled and luge track, and the overlook that offers a view of the entire city.

    The cost of the tour includes: a guide, transportation, pickup and drop-off at your hotel/apartment. Admission to the Tunnel of Hope (10KM per person) is not included.
