Once in Sarajevo, do as the locals do it. Get yourself a portion of almonds covered with cinnamon or chocolate hazelnuts, or any other combination of nuts, or even rahat lokum of your choice, and walk the streets eating it.
You’re headed to the cafe you previously chose or you’re just wondering around looking for the inviting place to sit down, have a coffee and enjoy it as the Bosnians do. Best case scenario: you still have your bag of delights with you, you sit back, let your mind flow and savor the taste while observing the people walking by. This scenario is there to get you in the mood of the locals, and we like to treat ourselves as kings/queens from time to time 🙂 In our terms, that means taking a break from the struggles of life to switch off all the problems for a little while.
Butik Badem is becoming more and more popular lately, but luckily they have several stores across the city. I’d recommend the one the main street close to the Eternal Flame or the one in BBI shopping mall to avoid the crowd so you can observe the cute and vibrant interior decoration and inhale the fabulous smells of the Orient.
