Itinerary

Day 1: ARRIVAL TO SARAJEVO (SATURDAY)

A transfer is included upon your arrival from the Sarajevo Airport to the hotel.

For over four hundred years, mosques, synagogues, Orthodox and Roman Catholic  churches have been built and have stood side by side amidst Sarajevo, thus giving the city its unique feel and adding to the Sarajevo image of being the “European Jerusalem”.

Meals: Get-together welcome drink

Day 2: IN SARAJEVO (SUNDAY)

Join a local guide for a guided walking tour of the City’s old town, past the largest mosque in the Balkans, the Eternal Flame and the Sarajevo Roses that are dotted across the city as a stark reminder of the turmoil Sarajevo endured just a few decades ago. Variety of cultures and religions, as well as three contrasting components of the town from former times are sufficient reasons for visiting Sarajevo. In the heart of the city, one finds the famous Sarajevo’s old bazaar – Bascarsija from the Turkish period, where you can see various handicrafts of metal, stone, wood, glass, wool, leather… Sarajevo is famous for its museums, bridges, sports centres, mosques (visit Gazi-Husrevbey Mosque), synagogue, Orthodox and Catholic churches, and many other significant highlights.

Day 3: SARAJEVO -VISEGRAD – ZLATIBOR (MONDAY)

From Sarajevo to Visegrad. Famous for its UNESCO­ listed ‘bridge over the Drina river’ immortalised in lvo Andric’s classic novel, Visegrad has parlayed this identity into a niche tourist industry by building

Andricgrad – a small but likeable mock-historical city celebrating the Nobel Prize winner. Continue to Mokra gora, a village on the border mountain Zlatibor, Tara, and Sargon, which overshadows the hill Mecavnik of the film village Drvengrad (Wooden Town), formed one of the most popular ethnic villages in Serbia, which has been constantly enlarging. All ideas come from famous filmmaker Emir Kusturica, who for the film Life is a Miracle created the settings which grew into a town where the famous film director lives.
