Stari Grad, Old Town

Reviewed By jenedc2016 - Santa Rosa, California

Travnik's largely Ottoman fortress is similar to others in the country but well maintained with many intact buildings, mosque, ethnographic museum with some interesting displays of local traditional life and culture, and a nice craft centre with locals making and selling traditional crafts, including woven goods and pottery. It has great views of the town and valley.

This new museum is a must. Dedicated to showing how children survive during wartime, the exhibit contains toys, clothing, and written memories from children who lived through the Bosnian conflict of the 1990's. Although there are some happy memories, be prepared to be heartbroken.

I would strongly recommend Sanel and his team. We had such a great time on the river! Everything was lovely- breakfast (omelette), lunch (cevapi in somun with veggies) and the rafting itself. The team was professional and friendly, and willing to answer all my questions! Also, Neretva is gorgeous and its canyon is just amazing!

Gallery 11/07/95

The first Memorial gallery in Bosnia and Herzegovina - exhibition place aiming to preserve the memory on Srebrenica tragedy and 8372 persons who tragically lost their lives. Through a wide range of multimedia content - images, maps, audio and video materials, the Gallery aims to offer its visitors the documentary and artistic interpretation of the events that took place during July 1995 in Srebrenica.

My friends and I saw the sign for the exhibit as we passed the Cathedral. I have visited multiple museums and Exhibitions that provide insight to difficult topics, but this one was the smallest I have visited. For its size it packed an amazing range of emotions and information, mainly narrative, into the experience. I was deeply touched. We had to leave mainly because the gallery was closing but upon exiting we were greeted by the mastermind behind the entire thing, Tarik Samarah! He shook our hand and asked if we had questions! The staff and Tarik are clearly devoted to this project and I hope to see it continue to thrive.

This museum seems a logical and essential response to the horrors experienced in Bosnia and Herzegovina some twenty years ago. The displays are informative and they provide a range of perspectives: from the individual, to the national and the international. It holds little back in graphically outlining the crimes committed. The focus on the justice process gives a visit a sense of hope.

Bascarsija

Bascarsija is Sarajevo's old bazaar and the historical and cultural center of the city. Bascarsija was built in the 15th century when Isa-Beg Isakovic founded the town. The word Bascarsija derives from the Turkish language. The word "bas" which is "bas" in Turkish literally means "head", in some contexts however also "primary", "main", "capital" and "carsija" which is "carsi" in Turkish means "bazaar" or "market". Due to the large fire in the 19th century, today Bascarsija is half the size that it once was. Bascarsija is located on the north bank of the river Miljacka, in the municipality of Stari Grad. On Bascarsija there are several important historic buildings, such as the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque and sahat-kula. Today Bascarsija is the major tourist attraction of Sarajevo.

You walk past western architecture and than you enter this old city market built in Ottoman times (Eastern architecture) with plenty of all kind of shops, restaurants, cafes and historic monuments. All pedestrian zone. Quite an experience :)
