Nestled between the rugged mountains of Romanija, Bjelašnica and Trebević and divided by the Miljacka River, lies Sarajevo – the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Historically, Sarajevo was famous for its religious diversity. Followers of Islam, Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Judaism coexisted here for centuries inspiring the nickname “The Jerusalem of Europe.” Sarajevo lets you sample the past. Artisans in the Oriental trade square Baščaršija still forge copper and brass and create filigree art. Taste delicious Oriental sweets in Slatko Cose and relax in some of the serene outdoor cafes, with a coffee prepared in the traditional Bosnian way. Use the opportunity to study the history of the city during your visits to mosques, synagogues, and Christian and Orthodox churches, traditional buildings from the Ottoman period, as well as the bridge where the heir to the Habsburg throne, Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, the commencement of World War One.
