 Tour overview

The Siege of Sarajevo was the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare. During four years people were surviving without transportation, telephones, food, shops, heating, water, electricity. Join this unique 3-hours tour for small groups and discover Sarajevo not as a victim but as a place of experiment, where wit can still achieve victory over terror. During the tour, you will have unique opportunity to learn about an extraordinary cooking creativity of Sarajevo citizens and taste food prepared by the war-time recipes. You will tour places strategically important during the war: Cathedral, Orthodox Church, Eternal Fire, Markale, Presidency of BiH, Parliament, Hotel Holiday Inn and visit the Besieged Sarajevo exhibition in Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

  What Can You Expect

Till now Sarajevans joke that each person in Sarajevo during the siege was very close to an ideal macrobiotician, a real role-model for the health-conscious, diet-troubled West. Greet your guide near the entrance to the Sacred Heart Cathedral and start your journey where you will have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to find out all about the incredible surviving skills of Sarajevans in times of war, learn about water and food supply, and taste dishes from the war cookbook, which is the precious mix of wild imagination - nettle pie, dandelion honey, bean steaks and lentil coffee. 
During the tour, you will come around the places that played a crucial role for residents of Sarajevo during the four-years siege and learn about the ways these buildings were used to facilitate and normalize everyday life of citizens through various cultural, social and sporting events. You will visit the Besieged Sarajevo Collection in the Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina and look into the everyday life of the citizens during the siege and witness their human ingenuity, creativity, improvisation, and functionality.
