The museums in Sarajevo are well worth a visit and a large chunk of Sarajevo’s recent history is hidden underground.

Sarajevo has become one of the most vibrant cities in Europe. But its past is still etched into its architecture and landmarks. The beautiful Sarajevo City Hall is the perfect starting point for exploring the capital’s history. Marvel at its beauty before heading inside to enjoy its brilliant ‘Sarajevo 1912-1981’ exhibition. Further down the river you’ll find the Latin Bridge and Museum – here you can stand on the spot where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was famously assassinated in 1914, triggering the First World War. Don’t miss the National Museum off your itinerary either. Housed in a stunning neoclassical nest of buildings, the museum boasts the country’s biggest collection of ancient and national history.
Awash with beautiful architecture, there are so many things to do in Sarajevo – wander the streets and spot the neo-gothic Cathedral of Jesus’ Sacred Heart, admire Rimski Most, a gorgeous Roman bridge, and gawp at the city’s impressive 16th-century Old Clock Tower. Back indoors, Ars Aevi plays host to a fascinating collection of contemporary art. What makes this exhibit so special is that most of the pieces were donated to the country following the conflict of the 90s. After a day of sightseeing, book tickets for the grand National Theatre and enjoy a play, ballet or opera performance – you’re in for an evening you’ll never forget.
