Welcome to Sarajevo. A city like no other.
Where East meets West. Split into three cultures, three religions, with war scars still painfully visible from the siege in the 1990s, the longest in modern European history. It was once renowned as a religious melting pot, earning it the epithet ‘the Jerusalem of Europe’. As intriguing as it gets. Nevertheless, its enticing atmosphere and vibrant streets will make you feel very, very welcome. Most of all, this city is about its people. Passionate, friendly and warm-hearted. In the lively alleys of the famous quarter ‘Baš Čaršija’, you will try the arguably most finger-licking (and the heaviest) food in Europe including authentic ‘ćevapi’ and ‘sirnica’. Sarajevo is a place to be, and to remember. Led by our official local host, you will experience all of its hidden gems and its football culture.
Speaking of football culture, the one in Sarajevo is one of the fiercest. FK Sarajevo and FK Željezničar, two local giants whose rivalry began back in the days of the former Yugoslavia, have ever since the independence of Bosnia and Herzegovina fought even harder for the football throne in the capital. Explore the vintage Koševo and Grbavica stadiums and learn about the turbulent history of this rivalry with our local host – an expert in Bosnian football. Immerse yourself in the local football culture, and get familiar with the tiniest bits of the Maniacs of FK Željezničar and the Hordes of Evil of FK Sarajevo. The warm-up before the derby among the fans including delicious and cheap local beer will give you the ultimate football experience with an underground and spontaneous flavour.
