Unlike the motionless, frozen mountains surrounding the city, Sarajevo is a thrilling race down a wild slope. From the infamous Latin Bridge to the traditional Bascarsija, the path to historic downtown Sarajevo is a steep one. Each sharp curve and bend offers a fresh surprise from the city’s sprawling past. Among the echoes and whispers of Sarajevo’s living history are modern delights, such as the numerous restaurants, pubs and cafés lining the avenues. These winding, ascending roads also lead to Mt. Jahorina, site of the 1984 Winter Olympic Games. Scaling Jahorina comes with the promise of an exciting ride to the bottom.
In 1914, a homeowner moved his house brick-by-brick across the Miljacka River in protest of government officials, who wanted him to tear it down. Today, the house is a restaurant.
As the sun sets behind the frozen peaks, blaze a fiery trail downtown and jump into Sarajevo’s thrilling nightlife – the steamy clubs are ideal for melting off the frost.
