Your Sarajevo walking tour will leave from the beautiful National Library/Old City Hall and lead you to the Old Town — specifically, Bravadziluk Street, which is lined with eateries serving up traditional Bosnian food. You'll get to sample the famous Sarajevo burek (filo pastry filled with meat, cheese, and spinach).
After we've snacked, we'll head to Kazandziluk (Coppersmith Street), where you can feel like you've stepped back into the 16th century as you browse the copper crafts, from jewellery to pottery. Our walk along here will lead us to the historic Bascarsija, an outdoor market that was built in the 15th century. We'll also stop to see the 15th-century Morica Han (a han is a roadside inn) that's the only preserved han in Sarajevo.
Your Sarajevo tour will continue along Saraci Street until we reach the historic Gazi-Husrev-beg Mosque and Sarajevo's 17th-century clock tower. We'll also visit the site where Franz Ferdinand was killed and world history was changed forever.
We'll then admire the beautiful Bezistan indoor market before reaching what is perhaps the most interesting spot of Sarajevo: the Sweet Corner, named for the local pastry shops that have been here for centuries. This is also where the old Turkish part of the city ends and the newer Austrian part begins. We'll stop here and try some delicious cevapcici (little skinless sausages served in pita bread).
Next up, we'll head to the Old Temple (a Jewish synagogue from 1581) and stop in at a café where you'll try the most important drink in Sarajevo: traditional Bosnian coffee. Once our coffee break is over, we'll explore the main pedestrian zone of the city, Ferhadija Street, where we'll catch a view of the amazing Sacred Heart Cathedral from 1889, the Serbian Orthodox church of The Most Holy Mother of God (built in 1863), and finally the Square of Liberation, where local Sarajevans gather to play chess 365 days a year, no matter the weather.
We'll then make a stop for some famous baklava at Sarajevo's market hall before continuing on to the Eternal Flame memorial, dedicated to the victims of Nazi terror during WWII.
We'll walk down the street of Marshall Tito (yes, the main street of Sarajevo is still named after the president of the former Yugoslavia) toward the historic National Theatre, the main stage for the biggest cultural event in Sarajevo: the Sarajevo Film Festival.
We'll finish up our Sarajevo tour with a walk along the River Miljacka to the last spot of our tour, the amazing Academy of Fine Arts, located in a former evangelist church.
