Sarajevo is the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Mediterranean Europe. It is nestled in a valley, and has a very interesting history. Many things have happened there including the Western and Eastern Roman Empire split, and conflicts between the Eastern Orthodox east, the Roman Catholic west, and the Ottoman south. There have been a lot of clash of civilizations, but there has also been an example of multi-cultural integration, resulting in peace and tolerance. Sarajevo is a modern European capital. Sarajevo Airport is in the suburb of Butmir, and is fairly close to the town centre. However, there is no direct public transportation to the airport. Taxis and trams are the most convenient means of transport.
Within Sarajevo, there are plenty of things to see and do. The Old Town is in the middle of the city and it contains cobbled streets and old mosques. The religious groups live together in peace and harmony, as there are various churches, mosques, synagogues, etc., close to each other. See the Latin Bridge, which has a plaque about the assassination of the Archduke of the Austrian Hungarian Empire, Franz Ferdinand, which is the event that started World War I. Sarajevo has many monuments to events and people in their history; for example, there are numerous cemeteries within the city. There are white marble gravestones for those who died during the civil war. There is also Markale Market Place, which was important for the beginning of NATO intervention and ending the civil war during the 1990s. Finally, be sure to see the Vrelo Bosne, which is the very beginning of the River Bosna, where the water is ice cold and very pure. There is a wonderful park where you can have a picnic and enjoy the day.
