Create an itinerary including Bascarsija
Situated in one of the oldest areas in the city, Bascarsija represents an oriental bazzar where craftspeople sell their wares. Pick your way through vendor booths filled with colorful porcelain pots, brass coffee grinders, and decorative cloths. Cultures come together here: you can expect to see people in modern European garb alongside those outfitted in traditional Muslim attire. Underfoot, the old cobblestone adds interest. Buy crafts and merchandise fashioned by the hands of local artisans, and see products that unite the East and the West in a blend of colors, tastes, and smells. The ornamental fountain in the center of the square is worth a look, but be advised that thousands of pigeons gather here too. Put Bascarsija at the forefront of your travel plans using our Sarajevo trip itinerary planning app.

  • Part of the old city. Very atmospheric place. There are many cafes, restaurants, pastry shops, souvenir shops and people. The food is very tasty. And not least, the prices for food and drinks are the same throughout the city and the country as a whole. Convenient transport accessibility. There are also trams and buses. Recommend to visit.
  • A wonderful historical place with artisan shops and tradition. Lots of handmade products from artisans. Old houses, religious buildings, shops are worth a visit to see the old tradition that is cherished. Home made sweets that you won't find anywhere else
