Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, lies in the narrow valley of the Miljacka River at the foot of Mount Trebević.
Sarajevo was the biggest and most important Ottoman city in the Balkans after Istanbul. Sarajevo was known to be a melting pot of cultures in the way different faiths co-existed in the city. In its small old town, you could find a mosque, an Orthodox church, a Roman Catholic church, and a synagogue.
Ideally, you would want to spend two to three days in the city to make sure you have covered what the city has in store. Stroll around the Old Town, shopping for souvenirs at Baščaršija, visiting the old Bazaar building not forgetting the attractions along the Miljacka river and a visit to the Sarajevo War Tunnel are some of the must-do activities.
Sarajevo offers you Mediterranian weather with warm yet pleasant summers followed by cold snowy winters.

Its entrance is distinguished by a portico courtyard with three arches and cupolas. The most remarkable features of the mosque are its acoustics and hand-drawn details that embellish its interior.
