We know Sarajevo as the place for the trigger to WW1 and for it's recent brutalities. This small city has these in the background, as the locals get on with enjoying life as best they can, with good cakes and coffee, smoking too much, and restoring the wonderful diversity of architecture.
Read "The bridge over the Drina" while enjoying Cevapcici.
Nice and walkable city with lots of attractions that comes with its rich history. Highlights will be the history of the 1990s (the war in Balkans)
has a wonderful old town - you could be in Istanbul. mosques, markets, amazing cafes and food very cheap.
Sarajevo has buildings from ottoman era, Austria/Hungarian era, communist era and some very modern. still a lot of buildings damaged in war and still not rebuilt. has a wonderful mix of cultures.
