Get to know Sarajevo (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Sarajevo.

Sarajevo's mix of cultures seems to have given its inhabitants a certain wit, despite the seemingly serious past and frustration with many years of near political and economic stand-still. Being a bit stuck in time means the city has its own aura. It's not easy to absorb the recent war and ethnic and religious conflict that plague this city, and many years of coexistence and general getting along juxtapose the relatively recent violence. For an impression of this recent history you might visit the Tunnel Museum in Butmir at the airport to gain insight into daily life during the war.

Visitors who need a break from the intense history of Sarajevo may find refuge in exploring its diverse cultures. Visit the historic town center and mingle around Turkish cafes smoking water pipe (hookah) or watch craftspeople. This city is particularly interesting for anyone interested in religion, with plenty of houses of worship to visit. You might head up the hills and stroll through cemeteries, with a shockingly beautiful view of town and on to the Yellow Fortress. When outside of town, do take seriously any signs about land mines.

There are lots of hostels in Sarajevo.

Hospitality is played up many places in Bosnia and most hostels have a very laid-back atmosphere without being over the top. The size and type of hostels varies greatly, from institutional buildings to little places crammed into historic apartments.

Sarajevo hostels tend to be helpful both on your arrival and with giving directions through the often nameless streets. If you have a tight schedule, you might want to stay near town, as public transportation in Sarajevo (trams and buses) is slow and confusing. Taking the tram around town is a worthy experience -- just know you may wait a while or have a long walk to get back.
