There is something about its streets heavily influenced by the time Bosnia was part of the Austro/Hungarian Empire and its Ottoman influenced old town (Bascarsija) that bring you under its spell. The people of Sarajevo are friendlier than your average city folk and there is a unique culinary scene that combines Balkan delights with eastern flavours. When you visit you wont be able to stop yourself falling in love with Sarajevo’s diverse and wondrous culture.
Aside from all of the above, less than 45 minutes drive from Sarajevo are ski resorts that offer unrivalled value, beautiful pistes and a fare amount of snow. The Sarajevo winter Olympics of 1984 are testament to a reputation of a prime winter sports location that is slowly re-establishing its self.
