Sarajevo Tunnel (Tunel Spasa) Tours

star-5
14 Reviews
Sarajevo Tunnel (Tunel Spasa)
The Sarajevo Tunnel (Tunel Spasa) is an underground tunnel turned war museum, and the best way to learn about the Siege of Sarajevo in Bosnia. Dug out by hand with shovels and picks, the 2,625-foot (800-meter) tunnel served as a lifeline for the city in 1993, connecting the Dobrinja and Butmir neighborhoods to the free Bosnian territory just beyond the Sarajevo Airport. After the Bosnian War ended, the house whose cellar served as an entrance to the tunnel was turned into a museum.

Visitors can watch an 18-minute movie about the war, the blockade and the tunnel experience, and view photographs, maps, military equipment and uniforms, as well as a variety of tools and documents. Visitors can also enter about 20 meters of the tunnel. The museum is a stop on nearly all war-themed tours of Sarajevo and guides can offer valuable insight and perspective.

Practical Info

The Sarajevo Tunnel and museum is located at Tuneli bb 1 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and spans from the Dobrinja and Butmir neighborhoods to the Sarajevo Airport. The museum is open 9am to 5pm from April through October, and 9am to 4pm November through March. Admission costs 10 KM for adults and 5 KM for students with a student card.

The tunnel is accessible by public transport, taking tram 3 to Ildiza (the last terminal of the line) and switching to bus 32 toward Kotorac. Get off on the last stop, cross the Tilava Bridge and then turn left to walk down Tuneli for about a third of a mile (500 meters). Getting to the tunnel can be tricky: the bus runs every 90 minutes on Sundays, and you may have to walk about 30 minutes from Ilidza. Consider taking a taxi or joining an organized tour for easier access.
Address: Tuneli bb 1, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Hours: Daily: 9am–4pm

Six Days in Breathtaking Bosnia and Herzegovina

Six Days in Breathtaking Bosnia and Herzegovina

Situated at the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, Bosnia and Herzegovina encompasses both Mediterranean and Alpine climates, landscapes and henceforth some of the richest flora and fauna found in Europe. Much of Bosnia and Herzegovina is mountainous. The long chain of the Southern Alps – the Dinaric Alps - stretches from northwest Slovenia through the heart of Bosnia and Herzegovina and into Montenegro, and finishes in the Prokletija Mountains on the Albanian border. Herzegovina hosts the highest and wildest part of this mountain range, which for centuries provided the population protection from Roman invaders, and which slowed the Ottoman conquest of Bosnia. The central belt of Bosnia has both rocky mountains and green, rolling hills covered with conifer forests and lined with countless freshwater streams and rivers.
