It is a soulful city, one that may be not the most populous, the prettiest or extravagant; but one whose streets make you feel like you are not a stranger, even though you might be visiting for the first time. Sarajevo takes you in. Its history, its urban fabric, people, and streets, their resilience will surely make you leave wanting more.

While many people in the city speak English, and fluency in Bosnian is not vital, it is helpful to have an understanding of the Bosnian language. Additionally, Sarajevo has an interesting history, as it is often considered the location for the spark that started World War 1.
