Modern World Longest Siege - Siege of Sarajevo Half-day Tour
Modern World longest siege - Siege of Sarajevo, is a tour designed to properly explain how Sarajevo defended, lived and survived more than 1400 days of siege, siege even longer than WWII Siege of Leningrad. We invite you to join us and get first hand experience on experiences, stories, facts, and reasons behind the story of death of Yugoslavia and why Bosnia and Herzegovina and Sarajevo took a central and the most unfortunate role.

Tour usually starts from the old town of Sarajevo and immediately we head towards the War Tunnel Museum - Tunnel of Hope. On the way there (roughly 25-30 min drive) we explain and show you a lot of things essential to understand reasons behind the breakup of Yugoslavia and we see unfortunate Markale Massacre sites, Bosnian Presidency building, famous Sniper Alley, Marshall Tito Barracks, Parliament, Hotel Holiday Inn, National TV house and few other locations important for the overall understanding concept of Sarajevo Siege.

Once we arrive at the Tunnel, a tunnel which saved Sarajevo during the Siege, Tunnel of Hope which was the major \"blood line\" for heavily besieged and destroyed city, we learn about its history. We get to know how and why we dug it, how long it took, how roughly 3.000.000 people went through it, but most importantly we understand what it meant for \"Sarajevans\". We stay there around 1 hour as museum exhibit requires thorough explanations to better understand the importance of this place.

After the Tunnel we head toward mountain Trebevi?, which by vast majority of its length was a first line during the Siege of Sarajevo. At the site we have the opportunity to see where the real destruction appeared and where the real front lines used to be, and where the real sniper and artillery fire took place over innocent citizens of Sarajevo.

During these times we will focus our story on postwar affects and stories of Bosnia and Herzegovina since 1995 until today. One of the most amazing parts of this tour is Trebevi? Olympic Bobsled and story of 1984 Sarajevo Winter Olympic Games.

The tour is very much enriched with great panorama views, especially from the very top of Trebevi? mountain where you get the real feeling what mice and cats game had been played here, and how the enemy with such a great advantage never got the real chance to take over Sarajevo city. We learn and experience biology vs. ideology. The tour ends at Baš?aršija square where the drop off will take place.
