Sniper Alley Tips (3)

Sniper Alley

During the Siege of Sarajevo, Ulica Zmaja od Bosne was one of the most dangerous streets to cross. Serbian snipers hidden in nearby hills would open fire on anyone daring to cross the street that connected the industrial area to the cultural center, earning the street the moniker "Sniper Alley". By anyone I mean anyone- it is estimated that sixty children died crossing Sniper Alley. United Nations vehicles would sometimes provide cover for those needing to cross the street; citizens would hover behind the car as it slowly drove across the street. The buildings along this street were heavily damaged, and many facades have not been repaired. If you're in the area look up at the damage and be thankful that today you can cross the road without fear.

Sniper Alley

Right in the middle of the city is where during the war , shots rained down on the townspeople from the hills above. Huge craters and bullet holes are still evident in the buildings on both sides of the thoroughfare. Its strange even though this was broadcast around the world during the war , it is only now seeing it 12 years later the horror is so much more real.

Sniper Alley

'Sniper Alley' is the informal name for the main boulevard in Sarajevo which during the Bosnian War was lined with snipers' posts. It connects the industrial part of the city to the Old Town.

The Holiday Inn remained open as the only functioning wartime hotel for war correspondents.
