Sarajevo War Tunnel, Sarajevo

#3 of 159 in Things to do in Sarajevo
Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
During the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, Bosniak forces used Sarajevo War Tunnel to circulate between Sarajevo and the area controlled by the United Nations. Food, weapons, and humanitarian aid were brought to the city secretly through this underground passage, dug entirely by hand right below a war zone. Walk through this 800 m (2,624 ft) tunnel lined with wood, steel, and cables. Experience the moist smell of mud and dust, knowing that those who built it worked in waist-high water and experienced repeated shelling from above. You can ask for a guided tour at the site.

  • Affordable entrance fee (remember they only take Bosnian Mark!). Such an interesting exhibition. We were appointed a guide who shared a great deal with us. Definitely worth the trip to learn more about the war. (WC - only 1 and not great)
  • Extremely interesting place, if you're interested at all in history and the war in Bosnia its a must see. I'd definitely recommend going with a guide so you can get a personal history.
