Favorite thing: Already on arrival by plane to Sarajevo I noticed many large cemeteries all around the town:
One of the largest is probably the Kosevo Cemetery Complex which consists of seperate sections for Muslim, Orthodox and Catholic people. Especially in the Muslim part of the cemetery most of the tombstones carry dates between 1992 and 1995. The Kosevo Cemetery is situated in the vicinity of the Asim Ferhatovic Hase Stadium, just 3 km north of the city centre.
A more centrally located cemetery which is mainly dedicated to Muslim soldiers and civilians who died during the recent war is Kovaci Cemetery. Here also the grave of the 1st president of Bosnia and Herzegovina Alija Izetbegovic can be found. The cemetery is situated just a 15 minutes uphill walk north of the old town (Bascarsija).
