Hey people, you dont be scared but be brave and come to Sarajevo!!! This is really cool city, placed between hills and mountains, and mix of culture and religions!!! One of the funniest pictures is when you walk deep down the old town and find place for playing chess, with really huge statues!!! Like in all of the Balkan places you must definitely try all of kinda baklavas and much more Make sure you eat a Burek (Not for the vegitarian people) they have quite interesting bosnian food :-) The finest moment is while from all of the mosques are singing prayers as sun is rising up . nice memory beautiful!!! ranting2.gif
