Open Air Market in the Bascarsija
On the north side of the Bascarsija area, along Mula Mustafe Basekije, you can find a large covered open-air market where you have lots of different vegetables, fruits and flowers being sold. In the back and up a short flight of stairs, you will find a sort of flea market where all variety of sundries can be bought as well.
The market was also the site for one of the more heinous episodes of the Siege of Sarajevo when Serb artillery locked in here killing scores of people.
In 1984 Sarajevo hosted the XIV Olympic Winter Games.The opening ceremony was held in the Asim Ferhatovic Hase Stadium, which at that time was named Olympic Stadium (see my previous tip).
In the vicinity of the stadium stands the Olympic Tower with the characteristic Olympic rings and the orange logo of the games.
The official mascot was Vucko, a cute little wolf, who is very popular for all kinds of souvenirs. You can still find him near most Olympic sites.
Bistrik is one of the historic neighbourhoods of the Old City of Sarajevo, separated from the Bascarsija district by the Miljecka. It was, allegedly, once the Catholic section of the city, and this is, indeed, where the Franciscan church is found. However, this is also where you will find the Emperor’s Mosque (Careva Dzamija), so it cannot have been a staunchly Catholic area. Nevertheless, Bistrik doesn’t challenge Bascarsija and the connected Austro-Hungarian parts of the Old City in terms of the variety historic monuments to attact visitors. It appears to have benefitted considerably less from the reconstruction monies donated by both Western and Arab donors, and many of the streets are in poor shape. Still, it is a fun place to visit, if only because you really get to see how average people in Sarajevo live and, best of all, there are some great views into the Old City if you feel up to the hike. The people of Bistrik (Bistrikci?) are fairly friendly too – although a postman felt the need to tell me that I was sweating like a Serbian pig (I think it was a joke).
