Best Time To Visit Sarajevo

The peak travel months to Sarajevo are during the months of June, July, August.

Sarajevo is the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. A small city on the Miljacka River its surrounded by the Dinaric Alps. Its center has museums commemorating local history which covers the 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, an event that sparked World War I. Landmarks of the old quarter, Baščaršija, include the Ottoman-era Gazi Husrev-bey Mosque.

Catholicism, Orthodox Christianity, Judaism and Islam all have strong, long-standing presences in the city ( “Jerusalem of Europe”). In the stone-paved streets of Stari Grad, shops and stalls selling rugs and coffee sets sit next to cafes, bars and nightclubs. There are sweeping city views from the 36th-floor observatory of Avaz Twist Tower. Outside the city are the parklands of the Ilidža suburb. Nearby Jahorina and Bjelašnica resorts are major skiing destinations.
