Sarajevo is the capital and largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
It has 280000 inhabitants and is located in the centre-south of the country, on the banks of the Miljacka river, in a valley surrounded by high mountains (over 2000m high). Sarajevo is a pleasant city with a very interesting and rich cultural and historical background, as it ia home to three main ethnic groups (the Bosniaks, the Serbs and the Croats). The city has been rebuilt after the destruction of the 1992-95 siege of Sarajevo and the streets and buildings are nowadays clean and in a good shape. There is a cable car connecting Sarajevo with Mt Trebevic at 1627m. Especially the historic core of Sarajevo (the Bascarsija Turkish bazaar area) is very touristy with countless shops and restaurants.
