Very nice place with a beautiful view to the city just 5 minutes walk from the old centre Baščaršija. There is a small coffee you can drink traditional Bosnian/Turkish coffee or a tea and enjoy the view.

Well, you would need the map help, and a bit of a steep walk but the view from the top is pretty nice especially for the sunset, even if it was immensely hot weather it was worth it. Also went a bit up towards a...More

I had read about the Yellow Fortress online and in guidebooks, highly recommended as a place to visit. However, I noticed that it would not be easy to get to from the main old city area, so figured we'd have to skip it. As luck...More

You can drive easily to the cemetery which is about 10 min walk from the Yellow Fortress. This has graves from the war. It is amazing how the country has recovered from a neighbours aggression. Then walk around the cemetery through a stone arch, and...More
