Trip Planner: Europe / Bosnia and Herzegovina / Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina / Sarajevo Canton / Sarajevo / Sarajevo War Tunnel
During the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, Bosniak forces used Sarajevo War Tunnel to circulate between Sarajevo and the area controlled by the United Nations. Food, weapons, and humanitarian aid were brought to the city secretly through this underground passage, dug entirely by hand right below a war zone. Walk through this 800 m (2,624 ft) tunnel lined with wood, steel, and cables. Experience the moist smell of mud and dust, knowing that those who built it worked in waist-high water and experienced repeated shelling from above. You can ask for a guided tour at the site. Arrange to visit Sarajevo War Tunnel and other attractions in Sarajevo using our Sarajevo road trip site.

Sarajevo War Tunnel reviews
Amazing stories of the tunnel and how the people built it and used it to survive the war. It is an impressive and impactful demonstration of what people can accomplish together.

Great guide by MAK - Art & Tours (located in Baščaršija). He introduced us to details you don’t get in the media, Google or textbooks.

Full of history, you can feel the tension in the air even though it happened 30 years ago. Our guide did a good job passing the feelings and not only the history behind the place. Would recommend the visit to everyone.
Nice museum type exhibit but there isn't much there and it's a bit our of the way. Was told it filled up during tourist season but a nice off season visit. With only a minor portion rebuilt it's hard to imagine how far it went.
