Ferhadija St is the main pedestrian shopping street in Sarajevo.

Tunnel Museum
The Sarajevo tunnel was constructed by the citizens during the siege that took place between 1992 and 1995. Serbian forces had entirely cut off the city and this tunnel served as a link between the neighbourhoods Dobrinja and Butmir. This enabled food and aid to come in, and people to get out.
Vrelo Bosne
Vrelo Bosne means "spring of Bosna", which gestures towards the location of this park. With its 270 km, River Bosna is the third largest river in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Vrelo Bosne is one of the country’s top natural landmarks and offers a stunning landscape perfect for trekking and relaxation.
National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Sarajevo tram system is an excellent way of getting around town. Trams run along the main East-West Rd (Marsala Tita) and circle the Old Town. The tram system also runs as far out as the suburb of Ilidza. The bus number 31E is the most efficient service and runs throughout the city every half hour until midnight.

If you want to go up in the hills or reach a specific destination a bit further out, the mini buses are recommended. You can buy tickets in kiosks or from the driver. When travelling on trams you have to validate the ticket in a machine on board the tram. When you buy the ticket from the driver he validates it for you. A single ticket is valid for one journey and doesn't have a time limit. There is also a daily ticket that is valid on all kinds of public transport (except bus line 31E).
Taxi
You find taxi stands all over the city and you can hail one from the street. There are a lot of different taxi companies and some drivers overcharge when they notice you are a tourist. To avoid that, always check that the driver starts the meter before departure. Sarajevo Taxi +387 33 660 666 Žuti Taxi +387 33 663 555 Boss Taxi +387 33 531 200
