Osnovne informacije

Sarajevo is the capital and largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is the most important administrative, economic, sports, cultural and academic center in the country. The city is located in the area of Sarajevo Plain on the old Roman roads in the central part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Olympic Mountains Jahorina, Bjelašnica, Igman and Trebević surround Sarajevo on all sides. The average altitude of the city is 500m, with a moderate continental climate. The Miljacka River, which springs from the mountain slopes of Jahorina and Romanija, passes through the center of the city. The river is 35.9 km long and, together with the bridges that connect the left and right banks, represents one of the symbols of Sarajevo.

An interesting fact, albeit unsupported by official documents, is that one of the bridges spanning the River Miljacka was designed in the studio of Gustav Eiffel, the famous constructor of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

One of the most important and the most popular bridges is certainly Princip Bridge or Latin Bridge. It was on this bridge that the assassination of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne Archduke Franz Ferdinand took place, just prior to the outbreak of World War I.

In addition to its bridges, one of the characteristics of Sarajevo is its broad cultural and historical heritage. Each day a great number of tourists as well as locals pass through the old town market area known as Baščaršija, which originates from the Ottoman period. It is exactly here in the small streets where specific oriental architectural forms prevail that the spirit of Sarajevo is best felt. A testament to this remarkable city as an extraordinary host-city for tourists, travelers and passersby is the Olympic torch flame lit when Sarajevo hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 1984.

Sarajevo is the leading city in Bosnia and Herzegovina when it comes to of the number of registered overnight stays. Around 150,000 people pass through the inner center each day! The oldest parts of the city Kovači, Bistrik and Vratnik, the popular resort at the source of the Bosna, Bijela Tabija, the Olympic Mountains and the large number of museums, City Hall and the religious objects of the four world religions are just some of the characteristics that make Sarajevo such an attraction.
