After you have explored the old town,( or before ) a stroll by the river Miljacka is a great idea. On the city side the road goes all the way , on the other side the road or path most of the way. There are several bridges so you can pop across at will, taking in the sights or stopping for a drink or bite to eat. The river is very shallow, with little waterfalls as it flows down hill.
The Miljacka is the main “river” that flows through the centre of Sarajevo. Actually, Sarajevo has three separate rivers, although only one of them goes through the historic centre: Miljacka, Železnica (which is in Ilidža) and the Bosna, from which the country gets its name and which lies farther west from Ilidža. This is not a river in which you can go swimming, and I would highly doubt that anyone goes fishing in it either. During the summer, when I was in Sarajevo, it seemed to be reduced to a trickle, although I would imagine that the melting snows make it much more impressive during the spring.
I sat on a wall by the Miljacka River and cried.Lovely, Beatiful nature,green city,quite people
and ,slow brown color Miljacka River.I thought very nice city but with full of sadness.
River is dividing the city 2 part and there are lotf od bridges ont he river.This river made a great canyon (Valley)in this area an the city locaten in this Valley.
The Miljacka runs through the heart of the city. A promenade was built along the river in Austrian times. People can be seen fishing in the shallow waters. Grand buildings line the river - some still awaiting restoration from the war's wounds. Along the river, next to one of the older bridges is where Gavrilo Princip murdered the Austrian Heir Apparent, Franz Ferdinand, an his wife in 1914, precipitating WWI. There used to be footsteps in the sidewalk, demonstrating his position. These have been removed since the war of the 90's.
Miljacka river flows through Sarajevo from east to west. Several bridges span over the river, and some of the bridges are very nice. The water is brown, but not polluted.
