At the museum, watch a short educational film and presentation about the fall of Yugoslavia, the Yugoslav Wars, and creation of the War Tunnel.
Next, head toward Trebevic, the closest mountain to the center of Sarajevo and the site of the first line during the siege of the city during the Bosnian War. Visit the bobsled and luge track from the 1984 Olympics, once the sites of the main positions of the sieging army.

At one of the largest cemeteries in Europe, see tombstones distinctive to Bosnia and Herzegovina. Then visit the White and Yellow fortresses in the old Ottoman section of the city.
