What a lovely hotel. The staff at reception are delightful: smiling, helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and full of character. Breakfast was excellent. This is a splendid place to stay, and is literally round the corner from the site of Franz Ferdinand's assassination.

During the Dayton Peace Accords, when the former Yugoslavia was being carved up, it was agreed that largely Serb areas would be discriminated against if not recognized as a sort of separate yet assimilated entity, part of Bosnia (largely Muslim) and Herzegovina (largely Croat). Serbia is tenuously aligned with Russia, who supported its efforts during the last war, hence the ...
... our guide started pointing out family members and friends names on a wall of all the people killed during the siege. It really hit home how horrible life must have been for these people during the siege.
On a happier note, today was out 4 year wedding anniversary. We put on the nicest clothes we packed and went to the nicest restaurant in Sarajevo. The food was delicious, and so was the wine. We had a great time!
