"Tunnel Museum" Tunnel Museum Tip by easterntrekker

Tunnel Museum, Sarajevo: 8 reviews and 14 photos

 
 

In four months the locals dug this 1.5 meter by 800 meter tunnel near the airport . It was used to move supplies into the city of Sarajevo, which was entirely cut-off by Serbian forces and to transport arms and the sick.

We start our journey with a very graphic video of scenes from Sarajevo during the war . It is a brief but effective means of transporting us into a reality that we have never known.

WE walk a short few meters through the dark dank narrow tunnel . It is enough!! I can only imagine what it must have been like in the tunnel that is so small you can't even stand trying to transport the dead and dying and to carry the heavy but all important supplies. We were told it was bombed many times during the seige ...Sarajevo roses are imbeded still in the floor as proof!!

The entrance to the tunnel starts at the front of Edis Kolar's home . It looks like an ordinary house in the subburbs....who could imagine the bravery that unfolded here...

Entrance to the museum is 5KM.
open 7 days a week from 9 to 5.

Directions: number three (3) tram to the end of the line from the city center. Then get a taxi to the Tunnel Museum and walk back to the tram station if it's a nice day (takes about half an hour).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
