It's a proper, functioning local market, with fresh fruit and veg and a location of one of the Sarajevo Roses.
City war tours usually stop at this location as well do give you a bit of history about one of the worst mortar hits the...More
The prices double once they figure out you are not local. So.... beware! The food is much cheaper anywhere else.

There are some shops selling some clothes. The majority of the vendors are selling fresh fruits and vegetables.
At one spot of this market, I...More
