Bobsleigh Track – Trail of great ideals

Bosnians love sports! That’s a fact! But, if you ask any of us to tell you something about the history of sports in Bosnia, you will have to hear the story of the Winter Olympic Games held in Sarajevo in 1984. Also, we will tell you that days before the Games started, everybody was worried because there was no snow, ONLY the night before did snowfall practically attack the city and cover it entirely! They had to organize huge working actions to clean the roads! It was just crazy! Everybody was cleaning, from 7 to 77 years old! 😀

Nowadays, we have only those stories and a few sports monuments that still resist weather conditions, and the humans are not so kind! One of those is the Bobsleigh track on the nearest mountain Trebević. I always go there on foot (I looove hiking) but now there’s a brand new cable car from the city center to take us just above the bobsleigh track! Also, taking a taxi won’t cost you more than 5 euros.

It’s a wonderful and very interesting place in the middle of the forest! It’s also all covered with interesting graffiti art! Of course, you can also paint something… I didn’t get into any trouble getting busted! 😀

The surroundings are really amazing… The beautiful flowers and fresh air will make your walk unforgettable. Don’t miss it!
