Food Scene
It's excellent and very close to the apartment. Also, you will find nice and vibrant atmosphere, perhaps meet some interesting people. You don't have to eat, you can only have a drink there. Best time to visit would be weekends and during evening hours.

An excellent restaurant with such a beautiful atmosphere. "Avlilja" means garden, and you are surrounded by plants in this place. The food is top class, everything you order will be great. You can also just have a cup of coffee, tea or a drink there. Evening time is usually the busiest. Does not work on Sundays.

A beautiful place with excellent food and wine. No very cheap but definitely worth the visit. You can also just have a glass of wine there and continue from there.

An essential place for BUREK!, please do not miss this place! One of my favourite places to eat at. Everyone of my friends from abroad was astonished with the delicious food served here, I believe you will also like it. Try the "pita with spinach" my favourite! Sometimes it's difficult to find a table but waiting for a few minutes is worthwhile. Try to arrive around noon to have the freshest burek ever! Everyone in Sarajevo knows this place to be one of the best.

Because every Sarajevan has a favourite "Cevabdzinica" (a cevapi place) and claims his is the best one. Hodzic is simply excellent and is in the Old Town. 10 cevapi with onions and a yogurth is simply a must and it's about 7-8 KM.

A great "pita/burek" place just 3 minutes from our apartment. Diba serves great pita with spinach, and excellent pita with cheese. Diba works only until afternoon so take a note of that. Everything you get at Diba's is fresh served and guaranteed to be tasty, believe me, I've been eating there for decades.

Drinks & Nightlife
A nice bar and coffee shop designed in the style of ex-Yugoslavia during the last century. The prices are not expensive, try to order some local RAKIJA (perhaps Travarica). Sometimes it's difficult to find a free table in the evening.

A nice spot for beer lovers. It's operated by the most famous brewery in the region - Sarajevsko. You can have several types of beer there, meet people, and have some snacks. Not expensive at all.

A cult Sarajevo nightclub and an intimate music venue. Works on weekends usually with live rock bands. Sometimes you have to pay for the entrance, depending on who is playing. It is a large place but sometimes it's difficult to find a table. The atmosphere is great and you can certainly meet new people there.

Parks & Nature
A beautiful hiking trail, suitable for spring and summer. It is not easy, but definitely worth it. Takes the entire day to reach by foot and return home in the evening. Definitely to be visited with a friend or a group, since it is a bit out of town. On the far end you will reach a beautiful waterfall coming down a cliff under which there is a small wooden bridge which you cross. The best way is to get a taxi from the apartment to "Nahorevo" (and just say to the taxi driver you want to go to "Skakavac") and from there hike up the hill until you reach "Dragan" coffee shop (a wooden hut). https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g3676500-d7122039-Reviews-Skakavac-Sarajevo_Canton.html

Vrelo Bosne or the spring of river Bosna is an amazing nature park with small lakes and trails between them. A place that nature lovers don't want to miss! The entrance costs 2 KM for adults and 1 KM for students/children. You can reach it by tram number 3 to Ilidza and walk 15 minutes from Ilidza to there. At the park you can take a horse carriage ride or just enjoy the nature. Remember that during the summer weekends the place is overcrowded. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g294450-d2285286-Reviews-Vrelo_Bosne-Sarajevo_Sarajevo_Canton.html

Shopping
A shopping mall in which you can find a lot of stuff, supermarket (Konzum, in minus 1), coffee shops and patisseries, clothes, electronic and computer stores, pharmacy, jewellery, mobile phone equipment, apple products, and a lot of other stuff as well. I recommend the coffee shop Vatra on 2nd floor. BBI center is open 09-22. bbicentar.ba/eng

The newest addition to the shopping-mall scene in Sarajevo. It looks nice and there would be probably full of people on weekends. You will find clothes stores such as Zara, Springfield, Massimo Dutti, Pull & Bear, LC Waikiki, and many others. An excellent place to eat at is located on 3rd floor - Food Market, great food and not too expensive. Basically all the restaurants are on the 3rd floor so feel free to explore. http://www.scc.ba/en/

Essentials
The closest grocery store in which you can get the essentials, milk and bread, coffee, perhaps some basic food items. It is a part of a huge chain called Bingo so it's not expensive. It's open every day from 7-21

Arts & Culture
A tunnel under the runway of Sarajevo airport connecting the besieged Sarajevo with the rest of Bosnian territory. A breath of freedom was reached through a tunnel to the city that was choking and was enough to give people new strength for survival in the years of war that followed. Because of the military, political, psychological significance and importance for the supply of the city that it had, it was the top kept secret - "a tunnel which is not, e.g. which does not exist". Reaching the "Tunel Spasa Mueseum" is possibly by taking a taxi from city center; or by taking a tram number 3 from the Presidency and reaching Ilidza than taking a 15 minute walk. http://tunelspasa.ba/#Dobrodošli

Gallery 11/07/95 is the first memorial gallery in Bosnia and Herzegovina – an exhibition space aiming to preserve the memory of the Srebrenica tragedy and the 8372 persons who perished in the massacres. The overall aim of this museum is to be a strong and decisive voice against all forms of violence in the world. Srebrenica is a symbol – not only of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also of the suffering of innocent people and the indifference of others. http://galerija110795.ba/
