Trip Planner: Europe / Bosnia and Herzegovina / Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina / Sarajevo Canton / Sarajevo / 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.

One of the warmest communities you'll visit. Visually pleasing, and intrinsically kind. The streets are fun to walk, and its also great to people watch. Went in winter, less tourists, but still significantly noticeable. Could spend everyday just walking around, drinking coffee, eating cevapis. no worries.
This place is really nice. For our group it was a pity that it became dark too quickly which left us with little time to explore the place in detail. For a truly enjoyable experience, read and research the area beforehand and do arrive early so as to avoid our mistake.
