Overview
For history enthusiasts, unpacking the complicated past of the former Yugoslavia is no small task, and to experience this history where it took place is something else altogether. Learn all about this era on a Sarajevo tour, covering the fall of Yugoslavia and Siege of Sarajevo. Visit sights once central to the conflict, including the Yellow Fortress, Sarajevo War Tunnel (entry fee at your own expense,) and Hotel Holiday, where journalists lived during the siege.
