Overview
The Siege of Sarajevo was one of the key events of the Bosnian War and one of the longest sieges in history. Get an in-depth overview of the history of the siege and larger conflict on this tour that takes you from the War Tunnel Museum to Trebevic. It’s a great way to learn a lot about the city in a relatively short amount of time.
What to Expect
Your tour starts with a pickup in central Sarajevo by air-conditioned minivan. Hop aboard and set off for the War Tunnel Museum. Along the way, your guide gives an introduction to the history of the Bosnian War and points out significant sites.

Upon arrival to the museum, watch a short educational film and presentation about the fall of Yugoslavia, the Yugoslav Wars, and the creation of the War Tunnel.

Next, head toward Trebevic, the closest mountain to the center of Sarajevo and the site of the first line during the siege of the city during the Bosnian War. Visit the bobsled and luge track from the 1984 Olympics, which were once the sites of the main positions of the sieging army.

Continue to one of the largest cemeteries in Europe to see tombstones unique to Bosnia-Herzegovina. Make your way to the old Ottoman part of the city where you visit the White and Yellow fortresses.

Take some time to enjoy the views of the old city, and return to your original point of departure.
