Went to the top and had amazing views of the city. We went during the afternoon, would like to go back to get the night view, the lights of Sarajevo should be outstanding.

Huge glass building a bit away from he city center. Famous by its rotating axes, and curved facade. View point is on 172 meters from the ground. You can have a nice overlook of Sarajevo there.

From here you have the most beautiful view of the city. The view is stunning and beautiful. It is worth to visit here. And in the café bar the chocolate cake was perfect.

Really nice view from the top. Especially at night. Probably this was the first elevator to go that fast. The person at reception was really kind and provided all infos needed.

So yes, the tower is open in the evening. Lift to the 35th floor, free of charge, is ear-poppingly fast. One flight of stairs... and the turnstile refused to take my 1KM coins, so had to use a 2KM one. But was alone on the...More
