Day 1: Sarajevo: Grand Walking Tour

Arrival at Sarajevo International Airport  airport where you will be welcomed by your guide. Transfer to hotel and check in. In the afternoon, we will explore, by walking, the historical city center of Sarajevo – the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the biggest urban, cultural, economical center of country. During the tour we will experience a combination of Oriental, European and Yugoslav influences, which creates uniqueness and beauty, seen nowhere else but in Sarajevo. This city embraced all different nationalities, but unfortunately faced destruction at the end of 20th century.   Known also as the „European Jerusalem“ , we will see Muslim, Catholic Christian, Orthodox Christian and Jewish architecture, that are just a few minutes away from each . Our guide will also explain about the assassination that triggered the First World War. Learn how Muslims and Jews protected each other through the different wars.
Free time for individual activities . Dinner in a traditional Bosnian restaurant in the heart of the city. After dinner, arrival to the hotel. Overnight in Sarajevo.

Day 2: Sarajevo: War Tour and Cable Car Ride

After your breakfast in hotel, together to your local guide you will be transferred to the Tunnel of Hope. From July 1993 until the end of the Siege in late February 1996, the Sarajevo War Tunnel was the only connection besieged Sarajevo had with the outside world. It took more than six months to dig the tunnel and was done using pickaxes and shovels. The only source of light the workers had was provided by “war candles”, containers filled with cooking oil and fitted with a wick made from string. On the night of July 30, 1993, the tunnel was finally completed, giving Sarajevo an outlet to the world. The 800-meter-long corridor is a little over a meter wide and has an average height of 1.5 meters. Thanks to the tunnel, the beleaguered city regained access to telephone lines, oil supplies, food and electric
energy. After the war, about 20 meters of the tunnel became part of a museum which contains many items from the time of the Siege of Sarajevo – the longest running siege of any city in modern history. After this half day tour, we will drive back in city center and we will enjoy a nice lunch in a local brewery. Finally, we will take a ride on the Sarajevo Cable Car to see some stunning views of Sarajevo and the nearby mountains and cliffs. Closed in the 1990s when it was destroyed during the Bosnian War, it has 32 gondolas that run from the heart of Sarajevo to the top of the Trebević mountain, which was the venue for the bobsleigh course in the 1984 Winter Olympics. Overnight in Sarajevo.

Later afternoon, we will arrive to Bihać and organize the easy city walking tour, a charming little town centered on the banks of the Una River. The town is teeming with café’s that inevitably gravitate around the beautiful Una.
