Do & See
If you’re feeling fit enough, climb up the hill to the old medieval town and the ruins of Jacje Castle, where you can gain great views over the city. Walking west along the main alleyway of Bascarsija, you will notice the architecture change as you move into Ferhadija Street and into the Austro-Hungarian influenced part of the city. Ferhadija St is the main pedestrian shopping street in Sarajevo. The streets running parallel to Ferhadija Street are Obala Kulina bana and Marsala Tita, where you will find many fine examples of the Austro-Hungarian legacy.
Tunnel Museum

Tunnel Museum

The Sarajevo tunnel was constructed by the citizens during the siege of the city that took place between 1992 and 1995. Serbian forces had entirely cut off the city and this tunnel served as a link between the neighbourhoods Dobrinja and Butmir. This enabled food and aid to come in, and people to get out. Today you can visit the house in which the southern entrance to the tunnel was hidden.
