We had set the alarm for 9am to make it to our included breaky, but after collapsing into bed we couldn't really be bothered. So we both had big deep sleeps until the alarm went off again at 12pm & reluctantly dragged ourselves out of bed. We are staying in the old town of Sarajevo so wandered in to have a look. Walking amongst the markets we found somewhere for lunch before moving on to explore. We headed along the river & stopped at the beautiful Latin Bridge. It was here that Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in 1914 beginning the first world war. From here we went to the exhibition about the Siege of Sarajevo to try & understand what had happened. We then wandered back out to the river & along the road known as snipers alley, where the Serbs used to sit in the surrounding hillsides targeting the civilians. It is very sad the atrocities that were commited against the people here. All over the city you can see the bulletholes & scars of war in a vast amount of buildings. But for a very recent war the city is recovering. In fact it is a very beautiful city, the prettiest of the eastern European cities we have seen in the last week by a long way. It sits nestled in the valley with beautiful forested mountains on either side. Some parts of it remind us of Austria. The people here are also warm & friendly. Anyhow we wandered around & grabbed a coffee before joining a free tour with a local girl. She showed us some sites & talked about their history which is always great to hear the perspective of a native. When this was over we wandered a little more, bought tickets to Mostar for tomorrow, before dinner in the old town & returning back to the hotel still weary. A good nights sleep & we will be ready to tackle some more tomorrow. We love Sarajevo & wish we could spend an extra day or two here. But Mostar awaits, & we have heard good things about it.
