• This tour provides a basic overview of what you should know about the longest siege waged on a city in modern history.

    During your ride in the minibus, your guide will familiarize you with the buildings and places that were important sites during the Siege of Sarajevo (1992-1995).

    Find out how the war began, why the National Library of BiH (Vijećnica) was burned and how many people were killed in Sarajevo.

    The drive along Sniper Alley will help you realize what Sarajevans had to go through but how, despite everything, they didn’t lose hope.

    All of this will serve as an introduction to why the 800 meter-long tunnel (with a height of only 1.6 meters) was so important and how it was the only connection besieged Sarajevo had with the rest of the world. After passing through 20 meters of the original tunnel and watching a film about the war in Sarajevo, your guide will share stories about the role of the tunnel, its construction and use, and will be eager to answer any questions you might have.

    You’ll have a chance to hear other interesting details on your way back from the tunnel.

    Note: There must be at least two individuals for the tour to be given and reservations are required. The cost of the tour includes transport by minibus and admission to the Tunnel of Hope Museum.

    Recommendation: bring along some water and a camera.
