    Another bridge too far

    July 9, 2019 in Bosnia and Herzegovina ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    The second thing to see in Bosnia was the place where feudal times ended: the bridge at Sarajevo. The first curiosity I noticed was the sign on the library building, showing once again that Serbian aggression will not be forgotten for a long time. Perhaps it also explains why I was not allowed inside unless part of a guided tour.
    The bridge itself - the Latin Bridge - was small; the type of ornamental bridge one might find in a country house garden. Another sign reminded me of the Bosnian ability to focus on the important points. It marks the spot where a monument commemorating the assassinations of the Archduke and his wife used to stand. No mention of the historic nature of the place and its significance to world history.

    I can see why it is still a burning issue....

    1984 XIV. Olympische Winterspiele in Sarajewo, berühmte Goldmedaillen von Wolfgang Hoppe, Jens Weissflog und Kati Witt! Nun wiederholt sich die Geschichte und die Hansebuben stehen auf dem Treppchen...!

    Durch den Bosnienkrieg wurde die Anlage schwer in Mitleidenschaft gezogen und wird seitdem auch nicht mehr genutzt.

    Heute starteten wir unsere Reise am Flughafen Berlin Tegel. Unser Flugzeug hatte leider ein wenig Verspätung, was uns aber nicht großartig störte. Nach einem ruhigen Flug landeten wir dann in der bosnischen Hauptstadt Sarajevo 🇧🇦

    Nachdem wir unseren kleinen, aber dennoch ausreichenden Mietwagen abgeholt hatten fuhren wir los Richtung Süden.

    Wir durchquerten viele tiefe Täler und hohe Gebirgsstraßen, welche uns schon mal einen Vorgeschmack auf die gesamte Reise geben sollten. ⛰

    Today’s stop at Sarajevo is brief. The first stop is lunch at a restaurant opened by a former pop singer. We waited for a long time for the lunch to come and only have 15min to finish off our plates. The lamb I have is average and tough, while Kenny’s lamb in a pot is delicious. I am glad we have diversified to try different meat.

    The city walking tour is good. We walk around the idle bazaar and manage to take the cable car up to have a panoramic view over the old city. The most impressive history about this city is this is where World War I was started - the Heir apparent to the Austrian-Hungarian Empire Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophia were killed.

    Belgrade, Sarajevo
    Next stop Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital, the city that has been through it all! It is where the Western and Eastern Roman Empire split and where people of many nations and religions met, lived and warred. You can still see many reminders of the Yugoslav War in bullet holes and cannon marks all around town. Though, still an oriental beauty with a unique twist, and a delight to discover on your walking tour in the old town. The city offers endless delicacies to taste, but the specialty is lamb.
