The White Bastion – Great hike and amazing view

As a huge hiking lover, I always look at the hills around Sarajevo as potential walking tours, and most of them I’ve climbed successfully! Of course you can always take a taxi because taking a taxi or a local bus through the narrow streets of the old Sarajevo neighborhoods is also a very special adventure! 😀 It’s one of those ‘experience Bosnia’ things!

The White Bastion is one of the best viewpoints, and there are hundreds of them around Sarajevo. It is two kilometers further up from The Yellow Bastion, so you can visit both of them during one hike. It’s not that well preserved, but if you are not too picky and easy to scare you will enjoy the amazing view you get when coming out through the window on the beautiful terrace! 

I prefer going there during the night (with a good flashlight, of course) to have a beer with my friends while enjoying the amazing view of the city!

It’s a very special place that has survived for ages, standing there, watching out for Sarajevo, so don’t miss being one that has also touched it and left a small trace on its old soul.
