Sarajevo Walking CulTour

Sarajevo Walking CulTour

Tour description

Sarajevo is mostly known worldwide for 3 big events: the assassination that triggered the World War I; 1984 Winter Olympics and the Siege of Sarajevo in the 90s. Yet, to narrow the importance

Instead of 3Es, the CulTour team envisions Sarajevo as 3Ms: a multicultural, multiethnic and multiconfessional city. It is a place which links East and West, yet doesn’t quite belong to either. It is the Jerusalem of Europe – a city where church bells mix with a Muslim call for prayer. It is a city of narrow, steep streets, good people, excellent coffee and lots of hope in spite of all the tragic past. A journey to Sarajevo is not just a touristic visit – it is an eye-opening experience for everyone who wants to embrace it. And who can show you all the hidden gems of Sarajevo better than local tour guides?
