Žuta Tabija (Yellow Fortress)

The bastion itself might not be much to look at, but the views that open up beneath are some of the best one can get. Take the walk uphill from Sarajevo's historic old town, passing the sobering cemeteries to those who fell in the Bosnian War, and reach the sole open-air café with unbeatable vistas.

Do & See

If you’re feeling up for the challenge, hike up the hill to the old medieval town and the ruins of Jacje Castle, where panoramic views of the city open before your very eyes. Walking west along the main alleyway of Bascarsija, you will notice the architecture change as you move into Ferhadija Street and into the Austro-Hungarian part of the city. Ferhadija Street is the main pedestrian shopping street in Sarajevo. The streets running parallel to Ferhadija Street are Obala Kulina Bana and Marsala Tita, where you will find many fine examples of Austro-Hungarian legacy.
