by Durfun

Hi,

Was wondering if anyone can tell me the best time (month) to vist this capital please?

When would temperatures be around 27C or thereabouts?

In Jul/Aug is it mostly in the mid to late 30s??

Thank you

for me personally May or April are the best in Sarajevo (and in other cities too, I don't like hot on paved/city areas). I was there in August as well, it was hot - above 30.

Then after summer, September, October can be still pleasant.

Thanks for that, September it will be :)

Travel Tips for Sarajevo

BIJELO DUGME

by neodue

Dugme is Button in Turkish.When I heard "Lipe Cvatu "song When I was 15 year old.I liked this group and found their albums.They were the group from Modern Jugoslavija.Strong,big and stable in Balkans.After Tito ,Bijelo Dugme gone like JUGOSLAVIJA.

Bijelo dugme ("White Button") were a highly influential rock band stationed in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, originally when in Yugoslavia. Active between 1974 and 1989, they are considered to have been the most popular band ever to exist in the former Yugoslavia and one of the most important acts of the Yugoslav Pop and Rock scene.

Bijelo dugme was founded by Goran Bregoviæ who was born in Vukovar, who spent much of his childhood in Music School, studying violin, from which he was expelled for "lack of talent". Soon after his expulsion, his mother bought him a guitar, and thus, Bijelo dugme was born. Goran Bregoviæ often admitted that his main motivation for forming the band was because "girls were more receptive to musicians". Bregoviæ was the band's sole composer and wrote most of the lyrics, although some of the most popular Bijelo dugme songs weren't written by Bregoviæ, for example: Ima neka tajna veza, Glavni junak jedne knjige, Šta bi dao da si na mom mjestu, Pristao sam biæu sve što hoæe were written by Duško Trifunoviæ, Da sam pekar, Selma were written by Vlado Dijak, Loše vino by Arsen Dediæ etc.

After recruiting the band's first line up, Bijelo dugme under the name Jutro (translation: "Morning") were turned down by Sarajevo based record company Diskoton, but another record company, Jugoton, signed them up to record a single. The first single was named Kad bi' bio bijelo dugme (translation: "If I were a white button"). After the single was released, the band's manager talked Bregoviæ into changing the band's name to Bijelo dugme.

With its charismatic vocalist Željko Bebek, the band soon reached superstardom in the former Yugoslavia, and, as one newspaper put it, sold more records than there were record players in the country. The pinnacle of the band's career was 1979's Bitanga i princeza, an album often heralded as their most mature with vocalist Željko Bebek. They were often referred to as the Yugoslav Beatles.

The turn of the decade brought the rise of numerous Yugoslav New Wave artists, including Azra, and Bijelo dugme soon found their popularity sinking, to which they reacted by reinventing themselves for their 1980 release Doživjeti stotu, featuring a much more New Wave sound. The chorus of their ska song "Ha, Ha, Ha" was used as the title of a compilation album by various artists Svi marš na ples! which was released by Jugoton in 1981.

1984 brought the departure of Željko Bebek to pursue a solo career and Mladen Vojièiæ - Tifa was recruited to replace him for their 1984 self-titled release. He in turn left the band because of inner conflicts and was replaced by Alen Islamoviæ, formerly vocalist of the heavy metal band Divlje jagode for their last two folk-inspired records.

The band disbanded in 1989 after Alen Islamoviæ checked into hospital for chest pains during their last tour, without telling anyone he was ill. The real reasons have never been elaborated, but most people suspect the dissolution of Yugoslavia caused the breakup of the band, because the band was often seen as a symbol of unity among the peoples of Yugoslavia.


Alen Islamovic, "Ðici" Jankelic, Milic Vukašinovic, Goran Bregovic, Željko Bebek, Zoran Redžiæ and Vlado Pravdic.Bijelo dugme's biggest hits were: Lipe cvatu, A i ti me iznevjeri, Ðurðevdan, Ne spavaj mala moja muzika dok svira, Ipak poželim neko pismo, Ima neka tajna veza, Pristao sam biæu sve što hoæe, Selma, Loše vino, Jer kad ostariš, Lažeš, Kad zaboraviš juli, Hajdemo u planine, Napile se ulice, Ružica si bila, sada više nisi, Bitanga i princeza, Pljuni i zapjevaj moja Jugoslavijo, Sanjao sam noæas da te nemam, Te noæi kad umrem, Nakon svih ovih godina...

The band reunited for three concerts in Sarajevo, Zagreb and Belgrade in 2005 with all three vocalists, but without the drummer Goran "Ipe" Ivandiæ who died in Belgrade, Serbia in 1994.

The band released their new album in November of 2007

Geography

by deeper_blue

The whole city is set into a valley, which unfortunately resulted in being laid siege to by Serbian snipers. During the war in the 1990's, thousands were killed, many of them Muslims. There is a large cemetary close to the Turkish Quarter which makes for sad viewing. For a better insight into those years read "Fools rush in" by Bill Carter.

Literature

by tomatourist

Two of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s most famous authors are Ivo Andric and Mesa Selimovic.

Andric was born in Travnik in 1892. During the German occupation of Yugoslavia during the Second World War, he wrote his Bosnian trilogy: Travnicka hronika (Bosnian Chronicle), Na Drini cupriju (The Bridge on the Drina), and Gospodica (Miss). In 1961 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. For more information on Adric, see: http://www.ivoandric.org.yu/

Selimovic was born in Tuzla in 1910. Between 1947 and 1971 he lived in Sarajevo where he worked as a professor and wrote many of his books—the most well-known of which is Drvis i smrt (Death and the Dervish).

One of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s most respected poets is (Mehmedalija) Mak Dizdar who was born is Stolac in 1917.

Of course, there are many other well-known authors from the former Yugoslavia. Some whose books I have read are: Miroslav Krleza, Antun Soljan and Danilo Kis. Slavenka Drakulic and Dubravka Ugresic have also written some very good non-fiction books.

A good website where one can learn more about the literature of the former Yugoslavia is the South Slavic Literature Library: http://www.borut.com/library/

enjoyyying snow slopes

by adonai_2012

skiing
snowboarding
even to the extreem to those ones with extra adrenalin

-------
you can go to a hotel, rent an appartment or a weekend house

for more info send me email or snoop around the net

***brief:
Bjelasnica: a bit more 'aggressive', wilder climate, less sun, smaller choice of slopes, yet wonderful
Jahorina: more calm paths, more stable weather, MUCH more sun, anagin also wonderful-my preference in any case bring clothes and you can rent equipment in a hotel-in the mountains

Sniper Alley

by american_tourister

Most of the populace wants to forget the war and rebuild. Because of this there are hardly any plaques or signs where the fighting took place. Everyone has heard of sniper alley but there is nothing to show you where it was. This is an overhead view from during the war. I don't want my Bosnian friends to get upset with me for discussing the war in these pages but it is such a crucial part of thier recent history and is the reason that I am over here.
