You know how Sarajevo is the place where East and West meet? That is perfectly seen through the places where people gather, so from the pubs in ‘Western area’, entering Baščaršija-The Old Town you will find streets full of places where you can smoke a water pipe, something very typical for Eastern culture and very popular in Sarajevo!
For me, a beer lover, it was hard to get used to these places where you can’t order alcohol. Also, water pipes makes me dizzy and I’m not a huge fan of crowded places.
Then I discovered Male Daire and this beautifully lit garden! I started going there with my friend and I realized how the crowd doesn’t have to be bad if the people around you are friendly and easy to talk to. This is one of the places where you can feel that Sarajevo spirit that everyone who visits the city falls in love with!
I also realized that you CAN have fun without alcohol, and if you think water pipe will make you dizzy, just order the lighter version! 😀
The music is oriental and accompanies the atmosphere wonderfully!
Don’t miss this one!
