Plaza
“Heart of the Old Town, where you feel like stepping straight into the Ottoman Empire. It is famous for one-story shops that sell mostly souvenirs on the main walkway but are still street-specific by craft when you walk into the small alleys around the Sebilj fountain. You will see many mosques around but if you'd like to visit just one we'd recommend the Bay's mosque.”

Museum
“The National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian: Zemaljski Muzej Bosne i Hercegovine / Земаљски музеј Босне и Херцеговине) is located in central Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was established in 1888, having originally been conceived around 1850. In 1913, the museum building was expanded by the Czech architect Karel Pařík who designed a structure of four symmetric pavilions with a facade in the Italian Renaissance Revival style.

Place of Worship
“The biggest mosque in the town but in our opinion, it's its history rather than its size that makes it special. Gazi Husrev Bey, as you probably already know if you've read up on Sarajevo, is one of the most important people for the city's history. He is famous as he was a great philanthropist that left all his inheritance to the town's Muslim community that was later used to build the public library, high-school and a public bathroom in the area. The mosque was built while the Bey was still alive. He received and order (as the governor of the Sanjak of Bosnia) from the Ottoman emperor Suleiman I to build a central mosque in the town. Gazi Husrev Bey obeyed and built what is now known as Bey's Mosque. He also decided to build a smaller mosque on the opposite side of the river in his name and leave it to community. After both mosques were completed he informed the emperor. The emperor was pleased but ordered Gazi Husrev Bey to switch the names of the mosques and he was certain that the Bey put his name on the bigger and more beautiful mosque. As we know today, this was was not true, but Gazi Husrev Bey obeyed and now the city's central mosque bears his name, while the Emperor's Mosque is on the opposite side of the river from the city center.”

“A nice viewpoint of the whole city, especially the Old Town at any point in the day but we'd recommend to visit it for the sunset as the view becomes truly magical. On your way up you can cross the Kovaci memorial center for the fallen soldiers of the Bosnian war (1992-1995) that is also the resting place of the first Bosnian president, Alija Izetbegovic.”

Establishment
“On 28th of June 1914, Gavrilo Princip shot the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Duchess Sophie Chotek of Austria right next to this bridge. This event was a spark that set Europe on fire and marked the beginning of the First World War. Bridge itself provides for a nice viewing point of the Austro-Hungarian part of the city, and from it you can follow Princip's steps that led to the assassination. If you'd like to dive deeper into the history of the event you can visit the museum on the north side of the river. ”
