Hong Kong and Eastern Europe Day 12

September 2009

Day 12

We caught a taxi to the bus station and headed across the Serbian - Bosnian border. The Bosnian countryside was very beautiful, with many mountains, tunnels and hills. Once we arrived in Sarajevo we caught a tram to our hotel pension, where there is a lot of evidence of the damage done during the 1992-1995 bombings that took place. But what a beautiful city.

We joined a walking tour for the afternoon with a local guide who had a great sense of humor and took in the sights of the City Hall, the Bazaar, the Catholic Church, where Pope John Paul had given a speech, the largest of the local Mosque's which unfortunately we couldn't view due to it being Ramadan and finishing off at the corner where Franz Ferdinand had been shot, hence starting WWI.

We finished off the day with dinner at Dzenita, where we had Sarma (a local cabbage dish), Klepe (stuffed pastry with meat) and the Soksja salad.
