Traveling to Sarajevo is not like planning a trip to London. Although the tourism industry is booming, it still remains a destination just a bit off the beaten path, and requires a little more research when planning a trip there. Lucky for you, there are a number of resources available to help you to plan your trip to Sarajevo.

For comprehensive information on the city, be sure to check out the Tourism Assocation of Sarajevo. Information on this website includes where to stay, what to see and do, maps and guides, and information on the city's culture and history.

Once in the city, plan to hit up the local Tourist Information Center, located in central Sarajevo at Sarači 58 in old town Baščaršija . The center is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A plethora of brochures, maps, and books, along with a knowledgeable staff are available to help solve any of your queries. If you want a tourist guide you can find more info if you type Sarajevo Tourist guide in TripAdvisor search. 

When looking for books to supplement your Sarajevo research, go for Eastern Europe guides. A number of excellent titles are available, including offerings from Frommer's, Fodor's, and Lonely Planet, among others.

How can you recognize not licensed guides even they advertise their services on web sites or through brochures? They conduct tours without a Guide License, required by law. Guides must wear a license while conducting any city tour. The license must have a photo, seal of the Ministry of Economy of the the Sarajevo Canton, and include the guide's registration number and the languages the guide speaks.
