Bosnia: Sarajevo, Day 3

Bosnia and Herzegovina

My last day in Sarajevo was a rainy day. I had a Bosnian dish for lunch called Pita. Best Pita is the one made on charcoal and you can have it in Sac restaurant. A circular bread filled with different stuff. There are several kinds of Pita like potato, meat, spinach and cheese. Pita’s price is per kilo. I ordered two kinds of potato and spinach and cheese plus a local yoghurt drink for 5 Bosnian marks.

This place I'm standing is a very important place in history. In this very place, a war was started that wiped out 4 empires forever, 17 million were killed, more than 20 million injured and many countries were formed after that. Yes, this is the place Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated and set in motion events that led to World War I

People in Sarajevo believe if someone drinks this water that comes from Gazi Husrev-bey Mosque, he/she will return to Sarajevo again. I drank from this every time I passed by 😎

In the afternoon I was walking around the market that I saw a store called Esfahan. One of the salespeople was Mohammad. Mohammad was an Iranian who had come to Bosnia 20 years ago for a short visit, fell in love with Sarajevo and had decided to stay. We talked for about half an hour and he made me tea. The store sold handicrafts from Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
