The city itself is both fantastic and horrible. Scars from war make an enormous contrast with the trepidant lifestyle. Nowhere else will you be able to see an orthodox church in front of a mosque and a catholic chuch. The turkish quarter is stunning. Life is cheap.

The most exotic location you'll find at Europe's border.

    Sarajevo is almost tourists-free. Most people still have that image of war and death and therefore, very few outsiders get to Bosnia. There are bullet holes in most buildings and reconstruction is slow. In fact, lots of abandonned buildings aren't demolished; people build new ones just in front.

    Watch out! A few buildings are still suspected to have landmines in them. It's not as bad is in the surrounding mountains but still, you got to take some precautions.

    The city is considered one of the most important cities in the Balkans and has had a long and rich history ever since it was founded by the Ottomans in 1461. It was the site of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which sparked World War I; Sarajevo had hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics and was besieged during the Yugoslav wars in the 1990s. Sarajevo is part of Canton Sarajevo, one of the ten Cantons of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The river Miljacka runs through the city.

    On April 6, 1992, Sarajevo was surrounded by forces of Bosnian Serbs. The warfare that lasted until October 1995 resulted in large scale destruction and dramatic population shifts. Reconstruction of Sarajevo started as soon as the war ended, in 1995.

     Future Plans
    Since the gloomy desolate years of the early 1990s, Sarajevo has made tremendous progress, and is well on its way to recovery as a modern European capital. By 2004 most of the damage done to buildings during the siege was fixed. A slew of construction projects have made Sarajevo perhaps the fastest growing city in the former Yugoslavia. Sarajevo's metro-area population in 2002 was around 401,000, which was 20,000 less than the population of the city itself in 1991. With its current growth and reconstruction, Sarajevo may one day in the not so distant future return to its late 1980s form and is clearly on the fast track to recovery, but the scars of the siege of Sarajevo on its history may never fully disappear.
