The tour on Mount Trebevic, where the abandoned Bobsleigh track is situated is more interesting and exciting than seeing it on the photos. The Bobsleigh track shows its scars from years of fighting and now it is covered in bright graffiti.
During the siege, the track was used as a cover by the Bosnian Serb Army. Sniper points were drilled into the sides of the track, and the reinforced concrete provided an excellent cover.
On our car ride, we will pass by the market place Markale where two massacres occurred during the war in which 111 people died and 275 were wounded.
Also you will see the Memorial for Children Killed During the Siege and you will hear about the first child that was killed in the war. You might be surprised by what is part of the monument built. We will pass by the two beautiful museums, which unfortunately are not open for visitors, however, they are very important because they are full of stories about the history of Sarajevo and some of the details you will hear from guide.
We will take a break at the Brus resort on Trebevic where you can eat and drink . After that, we will go to the Astronomical Observatory built in the old Austro-Hungarian fortress on top of Mount Trebević, which was completely destroyed during the war.
