As soon as you arrive you can see that much of the suburban part of the city is on the surrounding hillsides.

One afternoon I decided to just go exploring the hillside behind my guest house. It was a long sweaty climb, and I was glad I'd brought a litre of cold water with me.

Well worth it. Some fabulous views of the city and the surrounding country, plus a little glimpse into the way of life of the Sarajevo suburbanites. A lot of them seem to spend Sunday afternoon building/extending their own homes. Many have wonderful fruit & veg patches and orchards.

Give it a try!

PS - I've no reason to believe any of the bits I passed through might contain land mines, but I stuck to the road anyway.
