Sarajevo, the largest and the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, is one of the most historically interesting cities in Europe.
Sarajevo, nestled in a valley, is mainly located in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina but also with parts in the Republic of Serbia. The city is surrounded with Olympic mountains, Bjelasnica and Igman from Southwest, Trebevic from Southeast and middle range mountains from North and Northwest.
Sarajevo, with its about 400 000 people, is not a huge city, but it is vibrant, busy and full of life. For centuries, traditional religious diversity like Islam, Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Judaism, coexists in this city. Witness of this are different religious buildings which should be visited once you are in Sarajevo, like the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque, the Christian church The Sacred Heart Cathedral, the Serbian Orthodox church The Cathedral Church of the Nativity of the Theotokos and the Sarajevo Synagogue. Of course there are many other mosques and churches which are worth a visit, but these are the oldest and most popular ones.
The history of the city tells about different civilization clashes and historical turbulences cause of this national diversity. The last of them happened at the beginning of 1990 during the Yugoslaw war.
Today, in 2015, the city has mostly been recovered from the damages caused by this war. And with each step you take through the city you will still witness its multi-cultural integration for which this city is famous.
Sarajevo is an increasingly popular travel destination. It is a place where the Western and the Eastern population meets and splits. It also can be described as a European metropolis with Eastern twist what makes it more interesting and worth exploring.
If you decide to visit this beautiful destination, you will be welcomed by friendly and courteous people, no matter of which nationality.
The historic centre of Sarajevo is full of welcoming cafes, lodgings and restaurants. The architecture is a mix of Ottoman and Austria Hungarian buildings, like the newly renovated city hall called Vijecnica. The delighted Old town of Sarajevo, Bascarsija, with its stone-flagged alley reminds a little bit of Turkey. It is also a must see place in Sarajevo, like many others.
