FESTIVE SPIRIT OF SARAJEVO
Apart from the New Year’s program, Sarajevo has plenty more to offer… The festive spirit of our city can be felt in several locations across the city.
We recommend that you visit the Zimska Čarolija (Winter Magic) at Skenderija, which is this year’s novelty in the capital of B&H, and as part of it, a large ice-skating rink has been set up, as well as various decorations and wooden houses that contribute to the festive atmosphere.
In addition, you can visit the Ice Garden at Trg Oslobođenja Alija Izetbegović, which takes up a part of Ferhadija Street, and brings us the icy magic of the New Year’s holidays. The winter fairy tale in the icy park in the center of Sarajevo is complete with decorative installations, an ice-skating rink, sledding area, zip line, all purpose-built precisely for this location.
There is also the Holiday Market, a well-known winter location, where all holidays are celebrated! This year’s Market brings the offer of 25 stall holders: craftsmen and producers of handmade items, fan shops of Sarajevan sports clubs, food and beverage producers… Apart from various activities for all generations and the magical ice-skating rink, the novelty is the Holiday Promenade, a festively lit and covered promenade, where one part of the wooden houses with the stall holders is located, an ideal place for taking photographs and creating unforgettable holiday memories.
Sarajevo is totally festive, and we invite you to be a part of the best New Year’s story!
