Few cities are as rich in history as Sarajevo.  The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina has always stood at the crossroads of east and west, and been shaped by the influences of some of the world's most powerful empires.  Elements of that unique history have been carefully preserved in Sarajevo's Old Town and the surrounding city center, while further afield the city sparkles with modern design and comforts.  Over the past decade the number of foreign tourists who visit Sarajevo has risen steadily each year, meaning that smart travelers will book their cheap flight to Sarajevo now... before the city becomes too popular! 

Best Time to Book a Flight to Sarajevo International Airport

Sarajevo tends to have very hot summers and very cold winters, which makes spring and autumn the ideal time to visit.  Travelers who can handle a little heat, however, will enjoy visiting in July and August when the city puts on its world-class film festival and hosts free cultural events at open-air venues across the Old Town through the Bascarsija Nights program.

What to See and Do in Sarajevo International Airport

To immerse yourself in the history and culture of Sarajevo, choose a hotel in the Old Town.  The east end of this area is called Bascarsija, and it's here that you'll find the most fascinating remnants of Ottoman culture.  Look for the city's iconic wooden fountain (usually surrounded by pigeons) and then turn down the adjacent Coppersmith's Alley to watch artisans hard at work crafting jewelry, tea sets and other souvenirs. Stroll a little bit further and you'll find the Gazi Husrev-Bey Mosque, which is the largest and most important mosque in the country.  The mosque is open to the public for independent visits and guided tours; requirements for men's and women's dress are clearly posted at the entrance.

With a rental car, it is easy to visit some of the city's attractions that are outside the center.  The Trebevic bobsled track was constructed for the 1984 Olympics and later partially destroyed during the Bosnian War.  Today, you can walk or mountain bike the length of the track while taking in stunning views of the city below.  Another option that is outside the city center is the Sarajevo War Tunnel Museum, where visitors can explore the narrow underground tunnel that was used to move people and resources in and out of the city during the 1,425-day Siege of Sarajevo. 

Tips and Advisories for the Sarajevo International Airport

The city of Sarajevo is very safe.  However, there are still unmarked landmines in the forest and countryside around the city.  The Government of Canada encourages travelers to drive on primary roads, walk on paved surfaces and limit visits to rural areas to daylight hours.
