Sarajevo from above

The following happened in March 2015

Today, my excellent guide took me first to Avaz Twist Tower for a superb birds eye view of Sarajevo, then to the revolving restaurant on top of Radon Plaza for a great meal. Recommended for any visitor to Sarajevo!

The Holiday Inn

The tower offers a great view of the Holiday Inn, made famous during the siege as the hotel where journalists and foreigners were staying.

Dalmatian Squid for dinner

Notice how the city is surrounded by hills on all sides, making it so much easier for the Serbs, controlling all high terrain, to continuosly bombard Sarajevo during the siege. Once you have the high ground, blocking Sarajevo from the rest of the world is easy. On thursday I will visit the Sarajevo War Tunnel which supplied the city with all its essentials during the siege.
