Quite simply put, Sarajevo is one of the coolest cities I have ever been in, definitely one of the best in all of Europe and one you should go see now. It is also by far one of the most affecting places I have traveled to on so many different levels. Even just thinking about it now and going through my photos, I am overwhelmed by a variety of emotions. Happiness, sadness, pride, anger, excitement, worry, affection. They are all there.

Sarajevo je jedno od rijetkih gradova, osim Jeruzalema, gdje na jednom mjestu, na tako maloj udaljenosti možete vidjeti i posjetiti sve sakralne objekte: Askenaška sinagoga, katedrala Srca Isusova, stara pravoslavna crkva, džamije još iz osmanskog razdoblja.

HIGH 50 Travel – Sarajevo: perfect city break where East meets West and a town steeped in history looks to the future

Sarajevo is a city like no other, known as the Jerusalem of Europe because its cathedrals, main mosque and synagogue are within a few metres of each other. I would rename it Sarajevo the Survivor if I could, in recognition of how it has risen from invasions, fires, floods and bombs to stand as proud as its people, its eyes and hopes on its future even if its heart is shattered by its past.

Irish Independent - Sarajevo: A simmering new city break Bewitched by Bosnia-Herzegovina
03.07.2015
Published: 21.06.2015
Of course, Sarajevo is teeming with stuff to see, too: Stari Grad, the old district that serves as the city's epicentre, is teeming with 15th-century alleyways that lead to the Bascarsija neighbourhood and the bustling, immaculately preserved Ottoman bazaar, for example. At its 16th-century peak, over 12,000 shops populated the area; it has scaled down somewhat since then, but is no less buzzy (it's also a great spot to try some Turkish coffee).
