After the arrival in the city I was surprised how… normal it looked. It sounds bad, am I right? But those were the feelings I had. While pacing through the main streets, trying to reach the city centre by following the signs, I have spotted many similarities and differences between Bosnia and Poland. A fun fact for me was definitely the possibility of understanding the language in there. Croatian and Bosnian were understandable thanks to the Slavic base of those languages. While listening to Croatian news in the radio I could easily catch their communicates, and in Bosnian it was quite easy to read.
When it comes to our day in Sarajevo, we have tried to discover the city by simple walk. We didn’t focus on any sightseeing plan, and truly there was no time for it. Same with expectations – before the arrival there weren’t any clear pictures of this country in our minds. And we both were positively surprised. Especially when it comes to the old town, looking like a Turkish bazaar. The atmosphere of was just amazing!
Sarajevo against my expectations turned out to be a beautiful capital, which encouraged us to discover more of its amazing sights.
