Trip Planner: Europe / Bosnia and Herzegovina / Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina / Sarajevo Canton / Sarajevo / Bascarsija
Situated in one of the oldest areas in the city, Bascarsija represents an oriental bazzar where craftspeople sell their wares. Pick your way through vendor booths filled with colorful porcelain pots, brass coffee grinders, and decorative cloths. Cultures come together here: you can expect to see people in modern European garb alongside those outfitted in traditional Muslim attire. Underfoot, the old cobblestone adds interest. Buy crafts and merchandise fashioned by the hands of local artisans, and see products that unite the East and the West in a blend of colors, tastes, and smells. The ornamental fountain in the center of the square is worth a look, but be advised that thousands of pigeons gather here too.

Just have a wander through this great area of narrow streets that contain so much joy and history. Many interesting shops selling handmade local crafts. more »
The old town is fascinating & offers great little cafes/restaurants serving up tasty local sweets & traditional food - burek/cevapi. Great photo opportunities! more »
Spirit of the Old Town in Sarajevo, a market street filled with little shops of mostly handmade souvenirs and great food. Streets are filled with people making it a huge touristic attraction. A lot of things to be seen so be ready to watch close in order to see the most amazing details of the shops, streets and architecture.
One of my favourite places in Sarajevo. Definitely worth a look and a walk around. Nice stores to buy souvenirs.
