Sarajevo Panorama

Photo of the Day

I was pleasantly surprised by Sarajevo. I entered the city from the South and initially, I had trepidations about it. It seemed to sprawl forever and all I could see were the bullet-marked faces of uncharacteristic Soviet buildings. It looked a bit grim, really.

The Old Town changed my mind completely though. Mosques neighbour synagogues which neighbour churches and a cluster of pedestrian only roads form a medina that wouldn’t be entirely out of place in Morocco (if Sarajevo were more hectic). Combine that with the city’s sad but fascinating history and it became an enticing destination.

My brief stay in Sarajevo was ended with this view of the old town as night descended on Bosnia-Herzegovina’s capital.
