There are numerous interesting areas to walk in the city, but the most interesting of any walking tours through Sarajevo centres are those around the old town Turkish quarters and Marijin Dvor, both of which are situated in the flat valley of the Miljacka River.



The original old city, however, requires a considerable uphill walk. Sarajevo was a city founded on the hilltops overlooking what today is the capital city of BiH.

The old narrow streets on both sides of the river above Bascarsija are well worth the wander but if you are not up for the steep trek to places like Jajce Castle (Eugene of Savoy Castle) and the ruins of the medieval town, there are local buses and car tours. The views of the whole city from these areas are spectacular. Otherwise a walking tour of the main sites can be done in about three hours depending on your pace and number of caf stops.



There are several city guides but the best of the certified guides can be found via the Tourist Information Centre. There are offers of professionally guided tours in all major European languages and even in Swedish, Dutch and Czech. Group tours cost 80-120 KM.
