Ellie Marr One of our favourite excursions from Sarajevo is to Lukomir. This is the highest and most isolated village in Bosnia-Herzegovina and is only accessible for six months of the year by car. However, if you fancy putting on a pair of skis or snowshoes then it can be an all-year-round destination! The houses are typical of those found in traditional Bosnian villages. The kitchen is at the heart of the house with its stove, coffee table, smiling 'grandmothers' and the ubiquitous Turkish coffee. Enjoy a hearty home-made meal at one of the families' homes before wandering over to the edge of the village, where the views of the Rakitnica Canyon are truly impressive.

Sarajevo Holidays

Take comfortable shoes as Sarajevo is a city you won't want to stop exploring. Start in the Old Town, Bascarsija, with its narrow cobbled streets crammed with shops selling copper, leather and souvenirs. Find a mosque, Orthodox church, Catholic cathedral and a synagogue all within walking distance of each other. Drive up Mount Bjelasnica for gorgeous views over the city and invigorating mountain scenery. Admire the tenacity of a population under siege at the Tunnel Museum and pay your respects to the fallen in the cemetery at the former football stadium. Dress up and join in the vibrant bar and restaurant scene at the end of the day.

Sarajevo has a fascinating history, nestled between wooded hills and divided by the babbling river Miljacka, in the centre of Bosnia Herzegovina. The Basearsija is the main market square, and the hub of the inner city with over 40 narrow lanes emanating from it - these lanes are filled with traders in copper, leather and woodwork. In the market you can buy carved wooden toys and handmade tin coffee pots and cups. Sarajevo is packed with places of worship. The neo-Gothic Roman Catholic Cathedral dates from 1889. The Jewish museum was a synagogue when it was built in 1556. A nearby Orthodox church has been there since 1539.

Regent Recommends

Sarajevo HolidaysSampling delicious Bosnian cuisine at the restaurant Pod Lipom located in Bašcaršija. There are a several tables outside where you can taste cevapi – tasty spicy sausages served with onions in a warm pita bread.

Not to be missed is one of the finest examples of Ottoman architecture the Gazi Husrev Beg mosque, which first opened its doors in 1531. It is one of the many mosques in town and during the day you can hear the muezzin sound out from all over the city.
