FolkestoneJack's Tracks

Sarajevo

Posted in Bosnia, Sarajevo by folkestonejack on March 30, 2010

Arrived in Sarajevo in the early afternoon after a smooth flight with Austrian airlines via Vienna. It was a fairly tight connection so I was most impressed with the timekeeping of the flights and the fact that my baggage made it onto the second flight.

A taxi through the outskirts of Sarajevo gave me my first taste of the city. Initially it felt quite eastern european in flavour but by the time I had reached the old town you could easily believe you were in the heart of a middle eastern city.

I had a wander round the old town in the few hours of daylight that remained and got my bearings. As night fell it was wonderful to see the buildings lit up – especially the lights on the minarets.
