Fly to Sarajevo
The melting pot where East meets West

Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina is a hidden gem at the heart of Europe. It offers warm hospitality, delicious cuisine, stunning natural beauty and a treasure trove of history to explore.

As it leaves behind the dark days following the break-up of Yugoslavia, it is emerging into a bright future as a vibrant multicultural city, welcoming visitors from all around the world. Now is the time to visit and discover an unspoiled and enchanting destination!

Sarajevo was founded by the Ottomans in the 15th century and their impressive architecture still lies at its heart, within the bazaar area, known as the Baščaršija, with its narrow alleys and imposing squares. The minarets of ancient mosques decorate its skyline, forming an intriguing contrast to the majestic 19th century architecture of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This in turn, is juxtaposed with the Romanesque towers of Catholic churches and the onion-shaped domes of Orthodox ones. Sarajevo is surrounded by rolling green hills and overlooked by the iconic Yellow Fortress high above the city – a spectacular place from which to view the sunset.

It doesn’t take long to get out into the countryside for those who enjoy walking through pristine nature, or even skiing, during the winter season. Take the cable car high above the city to the top of Mount Trebevic to enjoy stunning views over the city and surrounding countryside.

Sarajevo is a perfect city break destination, at once surprising and inspiring. Drink a perfect cup of strong Bosnian coffee, accompanied by sweet traditional pastries or enjoy hearty dumplings and succulent Turkish kebabs. Prices are very reasonable and you certainly won’t be short of new experiences and enthralling sights to discover.
