    Visoko is a city in central Bosnia and Herzegovina with approximately 17,000 residents. It is located on the road between Zenica and Sarajevo. Visoko lies on the Bosna river, where the Fojnièka river merges into it. It is administratively part of the Zenica-Doboj Canton of the Federation.

    The town of Visoko has experienced a staggering increase in tourist arrivals due to the alleged discovery of the Bosnian pyramids, attracting in excess of 10,000 tourists in the first weekend of June 2006. Additionally, the pyramids have attracted the attention of Egyptian geologist and expert in pyramids, Aly Abd Alla Barakat, who in May 2006 confirmed the existence of a pyramid in Visoko.

    A site known as Visoèica hill, northwest of Sarajevo, became the focus of international attention in October 2005, following controversial claims that it is actually an ancient man-made pyramid.

    The Visoèica hill, was the centre of the medieval Bosnian capital Visoki and it has a generally symmetrical pyramid-like shape when viewed from certain angles. The idea that it constitutes an ancient artificial edifice was publicised by Houston-based expatriate Bosnian author and metalworker Semir Osmanagiæ
    [1] however many archaeologists named have stated they had not agreed to participate and were not at the site.
    [2] The dig began in April 2006 and is scheduled to finish by 2012 in order to break a cloud of negative energy, allowing the Earth to receive cosmic energy from the centre of the galaxy.
    [3] It is also hoped that it will be listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    3, Piramida Bosanskog Zmaja- Pyramid of Bosnian Dragon

    Sarajevo

    In 2006, Sarajevo is, the national capital, the 43rd Best City in the World, and the most important thing is that is situated around 40 minutes driving from Jahorina mountain.

    Sarajevo, the national capital, hosted the 1984 Winter Olympic Games, which, at the time, were the largest Winter Games ever (in terms of athletes and media). The country lost its reputation as an excellent ski destination during the war-torn period between 1992 and 1995. Presently, the economy and tourism are on the way back up, and the area provides some of the best-value ski vacations in Europe.

    Tourism in the city is chiefly focused on historical, religious, and cultural aspects.
    The Bascarsija (Bosh-char-she-ya) is the old Turkish part of Sarajevo. Built in the 16th century, the area was once the town's market place. The streets are named after the products that were once sold there (such as gold street and woolen street).

    4. The national library. During the war, the Yugoslav National Army fired incendiary devices into the building. The library's interior was destroyed including its priceless collection of ancient illuminated texts.
    5. The bridge from where Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife were assassinated by Gavrilo Princip. The Serb nationalist gunman was standing on the left side near the road as the Archduke Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was driving by.
