The tunnel of hope was just a small portion of the tunnel used to get food and supplies into the city to keep people from starving. A visit here would not be complete without visiting it.

A great way to try to understand what Sarajevo's inhabitants suffered during the siege of the city. A great place to teach future generations what to avoid in the future!!!

Important and interesting way of showing history behind the siege of Sarajevo. Don't forget to bring headphones and a phone as these can be used to listen to a good audio guide.

The tunnel museum is an ok visit but it could be better presented. The tunnel itself is fascinating but doesn't take that long to see. Everything else feels very patchy and not terribly well put together.

Beautiful place to visit and great history behind the siege of Sarajevo. Good representation of the war and great explanation of the tunnel conditions. Incredible what ordinary people did for such a long time!

Although it is small, the war tunnel museum (to call it that) provides so much information regarding the Bosnian war, how Bosnia became to be and how people attempted to stay safe during the conflict.

It was a very sad experience to visit that tunnel, however its a must to that! Feeling the pain and saffor of the war just 20 years ago... It needed to visit in order to remember that we all are human and the life itself is so fragile.

The War Tunnel is located a bit far from the city, closer to the airport. I do not know how to reach it by public transport but I am sure it is possible to find information on it online. I visited with a guided tour. Entrance was 10 marks if I am not wrong. It works like a small museum,... More
