DAY 1

GENERAL: SARAJEVO DESCRIPTION

Sarajevo is a city in which even strangers can feel at home. Neither geographically expansive nor characterised by large buildings, the city retains a particular, arresting charm with its abundance of busy café's and abiding tradition of hospitality.
The city's breathtaking backdrop of seemingly endless hills and towering mountains have in a sense always isolated the city, creating a timeless world, which despite its seclusion has always kept its doors open to the rest of the world. Although Sarajevo is a capital city typified by the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it also possesses a unique ambience that seeps into the soul.
This city epitomizes a partial centuries-old struggle against outside influences combined with the absorption of these influences into one of the most diverse cultures in Europe. Indeed, few places on earth feature an Orthodox and a Catholic church, a mosque and a synagogue within easy walking distance of each other. If there were any city in Europe that effortlessly straddles east and west, it is Sarajevo. Here the Byzantine and Ottoman empires of the east and the Roman, Venetian and Austro-Hungarian empires of the west left an indelible mark through culture, traditions and religions.A walk through Sarajevo is a walk through its past. From the oriental Ottoman quarters lined with sweet shops, café's and handicraft workshops, to the administrative and cultural centre of Austro-Hungarian times, Sarajevo encompasses the very best of both worlds.

Panoramic City Tour with the Latin Bridge

Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie paused at the National Library (then the town hall) on that fateful day in 1914. Despite an earlier unsuccessful assassination attempt that day, they rode west along the riverside in an open car to the Latin Bridge. It was here that Gavrilo Princip stepped forward to fire his pistol, killing them both and sparking off war between Austria-Hungary and Serbia. Thanks to a series of European alliances, this escalated into WWI.

On the way back stop in Jablanica and visit to the Museum of World War II

The town of Jablanica is home to the museum "Bitka za ranjenike na Neretvi" (“Battle for the Wounded on Neretva River”), which was founded in the 1970s and has in the meantime been substantially redesigned. On the memorial premises and in the museum still today the so called Battle of the Neretva (1943) is commemorated. A couple of years ago a new permanent exhibition was added dealing with themes of the war of 1992-1995 (exhibition “Fourth Corpus of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina”), thus changing the general approach of the memorial complex. By visiting both exhibitions, not only the entanglement of interpretation concerning both wars in today’s commemoration, but also current conflicts of memory in BiH become clear – the new exhibition focuses one-sidedly on „the“ Bosniak view of the recent war.

Free time at leisure for last day shopping

In Sarajevo there are markets and fairs where any number of artisans, sellers, and dealers will offer any kind of stock. Different foods are readily available, both fresh and cooked, as well as clothing, jewellery and souvenirs. At the markets you are able to negotiate with the seller, although that may take some practice. Like in most such venues prices may be inflated for foreigners based on a quick 'means test' made by the seller. Often those who look like they can afford more will be asked to pay more.
Also you will find here large shopping centres.
Sarajevo is fine for buying clothes and shoes of cheap quality and relatively cheap price. The main shopping streets of Sarajevo are also great for black market products including the latest DVDs, video games and music CDs. Most tourists who visit Sarajevo no doubt leave with a few DVDs to take back home.
