About the tour

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.

Every time I take a War tour with Dino I learn something new and even more, I am emotionally moved all over again. It's so hard to believe some of the stories Dino is telling but it shows what humans are capable off - in the worst possible, but also the best possible way. Thank you so much for putting so much of yourself into the tours, for allowing your emotions to show, for educating me on so many different levels. Amazing person and guide 💙

I could only watch for a short while but what I saw was thoughtfully and sympathetically explained. I will take this tour again to get the whole picture. Well done v
