Bosnia and Herzegovina


Sarajevo was the most difficult city for me to figure out on the trip. On one hand it was a bustling, cosmopolitan center full of people and obviously ready for life. The old Turkish Quarter, called Bas Carsija, was full of cobblestone streets, little shops, and beautiful buildings. Wandering through the alleys, I felt transported back in time.

On the other hand, all around were signs of the horrific bloodletting that had taken place here in the 1990s, and I literally felt sick to my stomach at times. The memories seemed to hang heavy in the air, and I felt incredible saddened at the things that had taken place here. I've divided the Sarajevo webpage into two parts to illustrate these completely at-odds environments that are part of the cityscape.

Sarajevo - memories of the war
Sarajevo - ready for the future
