Top tips for visiting Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Sarajevo was a difficult city during our Balkan road trip. Not that I didn’t love it: I did. But we had forgotten is was Eid al-Fitr (the end of the Ramadan) while we were in Sarajevo. Bosnia has three major religions, but islam is the biggest. Everyone told us “wow, you’re so lucky, Sarajevo is one big party during Eid al-Fitr!” And it turned out to be, well… not true (in our experience anyway). I would 100% go back another time though: Sarajevo is a fascinating city with a wonderful culture and a big, open wound from the war.
