Tour description provided by Viator

Can You imagine 4 years of siege? Four long years without elementary supplies, four years under the bombs, four years with no sun in the sky? Visiting the main war points will tell You the story by themselves – words will not be needed. Sarajevo was under the occupation for very long time, and marks are still visible all around the town. We try to keep it as a monument and great reminder of what shell never happen again!Sarajevo was occupied by each side of the city during the siege and the area was completely blocked. Since there was no way to reach free territory and in order to provide elementary existence supplies, some kind of solution had to be provided. That is exactly what happened! The story about the Tunnel, short movie made during the war period and the Tunnel construction, all those Museum items, collected during the war, and the whole surrounding area will give You a clear image how did Sarajevo survive the greatest siege in human history!
