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
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
hours depending on your pace and number of café stops.
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.
