Sarajevo is a capital and largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with population of around 550 000 citizens. Sarajevo is the political, financial, social and cultural center of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Sarajevo is located in the heart of South-eastern Europe and is an excellent starting point when taking in the entire region. There are plenty of reasons to visit Sarajevo and here is the list of just several of them:

  • Excellent value for the money
    Sarajevo finds itself at the very top of lists of European capital cities where visitors can certainly get a good value for their money. Whether it’s accommodation, purchasing souvenirs, taking interesting tours around town, visiting attractions, eating delicious meals in quality restaurants with spectacular views, spending an evening in one of the top clubs, looking for wellness treatments and health services or having unforgettable weekends in some of the ski resorts near town, Sarajevo is sure to surprise visitors with the superb quality they can enjoy for the money
  • A unique cultural and religious mix
    Due to its long and rich history of religious and cultural diversity, Sarajevo is sometimes called the "Jerusalem of Europe" or "Jerusalem of the Balkans". It is one of only a few major European cities which have a mosque, Catholic church, Orthodox church and synagogue in the same neighbourhood.
  • A relaxing rhythm
    Every town has its own specific rhythm and Sarajevo’s is an easy-going and relaxing one. Sarajevans can spend hours sitting and socializing with friends over coffee or some other drink, and it’s this “contagious” habit that soon passes to those visiting Sarajevo. It’s almost a rule that those who come to BiH’s capital do so in order to slow down their own tempo and to find time to enjoy idleness. You don’t have to see everything in Sarajevo today – leave something for tomorrow! Make use of the lovely day today by finding a comfortable place in some of Sarajevo’s cafés and spend time doing nothing, or almost nothing!
  • Size of the town
    In Sarajevo you can reach its every corner in half an hour. The best way to take in nearly all of Sarajevo’s attractions is on foot, as most of them are only a few kilometers from one another. If you are not such a fan of walking, taxi rates are not expensive as those in rest of the Europe.
  • Stunning nature
    Bosnia and Herzegovina is famous for its lovely and untouched nature, so in Sarajevo you can enjoy in long walks beside the river, trough parks or even mountains which surround this beautiful city. It is worth to mention that Sarajevo hosted XIV Winter Olympic Games back in 1984 and discovered its natural beauties to the rest of the world.
  • Delicious and organic food
    Mornings in Sarajevo traditionally start with Bosnian coffee, which is served in small copper pots (džezve). For lunch, you have a choice of wines that are produced in the many vineyards of Herzegovina, including authentic grape varieties such as Žilavka and Blatina, and evening entertainment would be almost unthinkable without Sarajevsko Pivo (beer) from the local brewery which has been in operation since 1888. Traditional food is both delicious and organic. Ćevabdžinice serve ćevapčiće, small, grilled ground meat rolls served in flat bread (somun); aščinice have a rich selection of traditional cooked meals and in buregdžinice you can choose from among some Bosnian pitas (pies).
