Bašcaršija is the historical and cultural center of the city and thus the heart of Sarajevo. When it was built in the 15th century it was double the size of today. However, due to a large fire in the 19th century big parts were destroyed. The old bazaar offers various attractions for sightseeing, but the wooden fountain Sebilj is undoubtedly the center of it. Today Bašcaršija is the major tourist attraction and remains at the same time still popular with locals. It is always brimming with life and thus the perfect spot for spending an hour or more over a Bosnian coffee watching the daily hustle and bustle.
