Private Tour: Sarajevo Day Trip from Dubrovnik
Private Tour: Sarajevo Day Trip from Dubrovnik information and booking
Tour description provided by Viator
Visit vibrant Sarajevo, the cultural capital of the Western Balkans, on this fascinating full-day private tour from Dubrovnik. Leave Croatia and head to the heart of Bosnia and Herzegovina, passing towns steeped in history like Počitelj, Mostar and Jablanica. In Sarajevo, enjoy a 2-hour sightseeing tour by minivan, and discover incredible sites that make it one of the most historically interesting cities in Europe to visit. See Bascarsija Bazaar, the Latin Bridge, Sarajevo Roses and more, before sightseeing independently.
Start with a pickup from your central Dubrovnik hotel, and set out by luxury minivan to discover Bosnia and Herzegovina with your private guide. Just outside Dubrovnik, stop near Franjo Tugjman Bridge to enjoy its acclaimed views, and then continue your journey west to Neum -- Bosnia’s only coastal town – for a stroll around.
Pass through the UNESCO-listed town of Počitelj, admiring its oriental-style architecture, and then head into city of Mostar, looking out for its Ottoman-style Old Bridge. After roughly 1.5 hours, arrive at Jablanica and enjoy time at leisure here -- perhaps enjoying lunch (own expense).
In the early afternoon, arrive in beautiful Sarajevo – Bosnia’s capital city that boasts village-like charm and a rich history. Mosques built by the Ottoman Turks sit alongside buildings created by the Austro Hungarians, and the city is often referred to as a living history museum. Despite the relatively recent 1990s conflict, the city bears surprisingly few physical reminders of its war-torn past – a sign perhaps, of the city’s desire to move on and welcome visitors with open arms!
On a tour of this vibrant little city by minivan, your guide will explain some of Sarajevo’s complex yet fascinating past, while showing off its best sites. See Bascarsija Bazaar – an ancient trading place with artisan workshops – and various examples of Ottoman architecture around the city center. Look out for the famous Latin Bridge where the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, and see the Sarajevo Roses (flower-shaped craters in the pavements, filled with red cement) that serve as one of the few reminders of war in the city.
After your sightseeing tour, enjoy time at leisure in the town to see all its gems independently. Your guide will point you in the right direction for the best coffee shops, restaurants or bars. Return to Dubrovnik in the early evening, and finish right back at your hotel.
