Bascarsija, Sarajevo: 30 reviews and 76 photos
The old oriental quarter of Sarajevo is called Ba?car?ija. It's the city's main attraction and I found it absolutely wonderful to walk around here. There's one big main square full of cafes, pigeons and Cevabdcinicas as well as many small lanes full of little shops, cafes and mosques. There's a smoky atmosphere here, the smoke is coming from the grills of the Cevabdcinicas, from the chimneys and from the people who ALL seem to smoke here.
A fantastic area!
All lanes have a different topic, there's one full of jewellry, one full of carpets etc etc. I think you can easily spend a day here when you look into every shop there is. I found a handmade Vucko in one of the shops, a T-Shirt in another one. And I found a carpet I would have loved to take home, too. Unfortunately it was a big too expensive! I wish we would have had more time here to give all the shops a closer look and to buy some more nice souvenirs.
Directions: Between the old National Library and Ferhadija shopping street
