Sarajevo is the largest city and country’s administrative, economic, cultural, university and sport center.

Due to its long and rich history of religious diversity and coexistence Sarajevo has often been called the “Jerusalem of Europe”.

The history of Sarajevo is very rich. Sarajevo became a city in the 15th century. It is also a place of assassination that sparked World War I. 1984 it was host city for Winter Olympics. More recently, Sarajevo underwent the longest siege in modern military history during the Bosnian War.

The city itself has its fair share of hilly terrain, as evidenced by the many steeply inclined streets and residences seemingly perched on the hillsides. The Miljacka river is one of the city’s chief geographic features. It flows through the city from the east to the west where eventually meets up with the Bosna river.
