My Travel Photo Diary : 2 Hours In Sarajevo!


One of the funniest and probably the hardest things about traveling, is trying to squeeze in a lot of sights into a very short time frame. I don’t know about you guys, but this usually leaves me feeling more stressed than I should be.

This is a somewhat #throwback post as I visited this lovely city back in October while visiting Mostar and Blagaj.

However, it’s never too late to share the experience ey?

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital, Sarajevo, is a charming city in a valley which wears its heart on its sleeve and shows its scars on its buildings. This Balkan city is often cited as a place where east meets west.

Sarajevo is a very historically significant city, its landmarks come with a story so I recommend taking a walking tour of Sarajevo on your arrival. I unfortunately didn’t take this tour so I just walked along a very long street and took pictures of what I thought was amazing.

Here are some a lot of my photos from Sarajevo!

 Latin bridge :

The infamous Latin Bridge. The catalyst for WWI, the northern end of this Ottoman bridge was where Gavrila Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria on 28th June 1914.

Academy Of Fine Arts :

The building was originally intended to serve as an Evangelical Church, it housed since 1981 the Academy of Fine Arts and a Exhibition Hall. An impressive Gothic Revival-style building and one of the loveliest buildings in Sarajevo.

Two hours in Sarajevo was amazing and I had a lovely experience despite being rushed. I also had a really nice pasta dish in Vapiano, one of my favorite pasta places and it was  the best so far.



From the look of things, this city looks like it will be much nicer to visit in the summer.
