What an interesting place - loved the lively music indigenous to the region/country. Beer was made on premises which made it unique. Really kool architecture inside and out. Only setback was smoke! It's still allowed; and as an occasional cigarillo smoker, it was even too...More

I knew from doing some research that the museum wasn't the best, but the inside of the restaurant/pub is worth the visit. The brewery is around 150 years old and the decor inside matches that perfectly. It is definitely worth stopping in for a beer.

Unfortunately you can not see anything from the brewery, so don't expect to have an exhausting, long visit to discover the hidden secrets of beer-making. In fact the museum is a small room full of advertisements and other materials mainly from the late 19th century....More

Whilst it's a bit off the beaten track, outside the main city (although only about a 15 - 20 minute walk) this place is well worth finding. It's been in existence for over 150 years, and was opened under Ottoman rule - quite a feat...More

The brewery has been around for more than 150 years. That alone should get you to visit. The interior is lovely and the staff is very attentive. I only came for the beer which was great!

Sarajevo Brewery exists over 150 years - it opened in 1864 as the first local industry and shortly became one of leading producers in Bosnia, with considerable amounts exported to Montenegro, Croatia and Albania. Just before World War I, Sarajevska Pivara was producing 116,000 hl...More

Apart from being an interesting building (of the beer factory) it also includes a restaurant-museum, where you can have some freshly produced beer and order some food. If you're in the neighbourhood and a beer-lover, don't miss this place.

A beautiful room with vaulted ceilings and a special atmosphere that befits an old brewery. We just stopped for a couple of drinks (including non-alcoholic) and really enjoyed the ambiance. Friends went for dinner and enjoyed that, too. A nice stop, especially on a hot...More

You can drink here Sarajevsko on tap, that is produced in brewery next door. Also you can have normal lunch or dinner and great desserts.
