  • Avaz Twist Tower located in Sarajevo was great spot to visit with family. If you are with baby is good to know that you need to use stairs for last floor.  more »
  • It is all about the view from the top. You will see the whole Sarajevo and it truely is breathtaking. There is a cafe at the top so you can sit down and enjoy the view as well. It is worth it.  more »
  • There are two good places where you can see Sarajevo from above: the first is the cable car to the top of a mountain, and the other one is the Avaz Twist Tower. The skyscraper is about 170 meters high and not directly in downtown. The Sarajevo main station is next to the tower. The elevator is very very fast and you can look outside while riding it. On the top is a cafeteria which is quite nice. One floor above the cafeteria is the viewpoint platform. It’s outside and the price is 2 KM (about 1€). But you need the right coins because you can’t change money at the cafeteria. The view is great, you can see all sights and the whole city.
  • If you visit Sarajevo, Avaz Twist Tower is a must-see. The view is breathtaking. It is extremely cheap to enter the observation deck considering the experience of viewing the city from almost a 360 degree, 130-something meters up. On the floor below, there's a nice little cafe with also a good view, but unfortunately through blue-ish tinted windows.
