Sarajevo survived the darkest part of it's history at the end of the 20th century. Sarajevo Siege is known as the longest siege of the history of modern Warfare with 1425 days of duration. During that period citizens of Sarajevo were in the "survival mode". Just to get water, food and any other supplies was a dangerous task since as soon you would step out of your shelter you would become a target for snipers and grenades. The "Sniper Alley" was the informal name for streets Zmaja od Bosne Street and Meša Selimović Boulevard, the main boulevard in Sarajevo which during the Bosnian War was lined with snipers' posts, and became infamous as a dangerous place for civilians to traverse. The road connects the industrial part of the city and it's residential areas to the Old Town's cultural and historic sites. The boulevar has many high-rise buildings giving sniper shooters extensive fields of fire. On this tour you have the opportunity to see the street and hear many stories about how Sarajevans were passing it and for what purpose. All this was happening at the end of the 20th century in Europe. Let's learn about it so this would never happen anywhere in the world.

This tour shows very clearly the situation in Sarajevo during the war in Bosnia. The city was besieged and Dino gives a clear, objective account on what that meant for daily life in the city and for the inhabitants of Sarajevo. The tour is emotional and heavy since it takes you around the most dangerous places, but also full of hope due to the stories of people that wanted to live and not only survive. Amazing courage and creativity shows in this stories. Dino, thanks for giving us the possibility to learn more and firsthand about a war that was so close to us and that I knew only very superficially before joining your tours.
