Famous meeting place of almost all tourist groups, and surrounded with local specialty restaurants and souvenir shops, Sebilj is hard to miss if you visit Sarajevo. Here, you can refill your water bottles with cold water even in middle of the summer.

The Sebijl is the most famous "fountain" in Sarajevo. It's interesting because it is made of wood and not of stone. It's nothing spacial, but you can't miss it. There are a lot of people there taking pictures. And beware of the pigeons.

Be aware - a lot of baggers right here. This is the symbol of Sarajevo, so it's a place to take selfie here!

The meeting point in Bascarsija. You can find many shops here. Take photo when you are here with pigeons. The tram station is just one step away from here.

Staple of Baščaršija square and Sarajevo's old town staple, Sebilj is a place where everyone comes to take a picture as it encompasses their visit to Sarajevo. Sebilj's square is frequented by tourists...and pigeons that come to be fed by corn sold by local vendor. From Sebilj you have easy access to all Old Town buildings and attractions

It is nice to hang out here and be entertained by pigeons at this piazza. There are many shops around selling souvenirs, fruits, food. The tram station is also located at the opposite side.

This is a great looking Ottoman fountain that is good for a photo, meet people at and to feed the many, many pigeons. Worthwhile.

This place is a landmark of Sarajevo. It's famous as a meeting point and fountain. People says if you drink a water from this fountain that you'll come back in Sarajevo. I did.
