From the city centre to nature in less than an hour – through neighbourhoods that seem like villages, up high into the forest and then back, past small neighbourhood mosques and historical monuments. This is exactly what awaits you on our Urban Hike!
We meet at the cathedral – there are already the first exciting facts to tell about this city, the Jerusalem of the Balkans, before we set off for the mahalas. These typical Ottoman neighbourhoods of Sarajevo cling to the surrounding mountains with their houses and tell exciting stories of multiculturalism, diversity and cohesion!
We discover Sufi monasteries, Jewish homes and gardens where goats graze and vegetables are grown. Our urban hike then takes us up to Café 105: a place steeped in history and one of the most beautiful views over Sarajevo!
There we enjoy a little refreshment, exchange our impressions of the first part of our hike – and take photos. Freshly strengthened, we start the descent – past old trenches and other great viewpoints of the canyon of the Miljacka River. On this part of the hike you can expect insights into the siege of Sarajevo in the 90s.
Our hike ends at Mahala Sedrenik – with a typical Bosnian lunch and rakija tasting with a phenomenal view (if you want)!
