If you stop random people in Sarajevo and ask him/her where you should try "ćevapi" the answer would vary a lot. If you ask me where you can try best "ćevapi", I wouldn't know what to say for sure, but DEFINITELY you CAN'T make mistake by eating at "Ćevabdžinica Željo" which is my favorite one.

If you are about to leave Sarajevo and continue your journey, it doesn't matter are you heading east or west, if you are traveling from the railway or bus station, you must try one more "ćevapi" which will make you come again. Ćevapi at Ćevabdžinica "Zmaj 2" is one of the best and Tastiest you can try in Sarajevo. Portions are largest as well, so you won't travell "on empty stomach"

If you have just come to Sarajevo and you don't know where to eat, PIRPA is the best place for you. It is a 5min walk from the apartment and it works 24-0. Portions are large and food is tasty. That's the reason why Pirpa is one of favourite fast food for locals.

For booth, locals, and tourists, this is one of the favorite places in Sarajevo. Caffe "Vidikovac" is just a few minutes away from the city center and it has to offer a stunning view that will take your breath away. Since taxi is cheap in Bosnia my recommendation is to pick up a taxi and go there, a minibus is an option as well at the minibus station (above Sebilj). The expected price in one direction is around 4€.

Sightseeing
The Cathedral of Jesus’ Sacred Heart was built in 1889 in the Neo-Gothic style and is the seat of the Archdiocese of Vrhbosna. Josip Vancaš, a Hungarian architect, took his inspiration for the design of Sarajevo’s cathedral from the Notre Dame Cathedral in Dijon, France and St. Teyn Cathedral in Prague. Thanks to Vancaš’ great talent, Sarajevo’s cathedral ended up becoming an entirely new and authentic building, and also fits in beautifully with its surroundings, with Gazi Husrev Bey’s Hamam (Turkish bath) in the background.

There used to be hundreds of sebiljs (kiosk-shaped public fountains) in Sarajevo, but today the last one is found on Baščaršija Square, where it serves as a major symbol of the city. The origins of these fountains can be traced back to the Arabian Peninsula and the custom of building sebiljs was brought to Bosnia and Herzegovina by the Ottomans. Sebiljdžija, workers who received wages from the state or a vakuf (endowment), manned the kiosks and dispensed free water to hungry passersby. This sebilj in Baščaršija dates back to the Austro-Hungarian period. The original one, built by Mehmed Pasha Kukavica, was several meters away from where Sebilj now stands, but was knocked down after being damaged during a fire. Alexander Wittek’s design for Baščaršija’s Sebilj is in the Pseudo Moorish style and was installed in 1913. It underwent renovation before the XIV Winter Olympic Games were held and again after the last war.
