Smashing Sarajevo - 30th April 2008 @ 6:34 pm «   »

Location: Bosnia : Smashing Sarajevo

Sarajevo is really beautiful! It is a fairly big city, but its central part feels really small and welcoming. The dozens of pedestrianised streets make for a wonderful sightseeing experience.

The town is on the banks of the Miljacka river and is surrounded by green mountains covered in small houses. It almost feels like walking in a village in Switzerland. The signs of the 1992-1995 war are still visible in places (bullet holes in buildings, etc), but judging by the people’s attitudes you would never guess they’ve gone through such tradegy.

We’ve spent the day wondering the streets and taking in the vibrant atmosphere, ending the day with a Chevapcici (minced meat sausages with a huge flat bread) at a local Muslim restaurant – really exellent!

Our next journey starts tomorrow morning at 06:45 to Mostar (apparently another beautiful Bosnian town) and then on to Montenegro’s coastline.
