Better like a white bastion. One of the best place to make a photo of the city. Parking is little bit of complicated. During night is full of the light form small bulbs.

A remains of the old fortress, just above the city. No more than 10 min of walking from Baščaršija. A nice place to see Sun set over Sarajevo, and see almost the whole city from that viewpoint.

Very nice view of Sarajevo from this place. We went by car - good parking possibilities around on the streets. We were there during the day; if possible, go there for the sunset.

We walked up here. It's a nice and short walk if you don't mind walking up the hill. You get a nice view of the city.

This is one of the old Ottoman bastions overlooking the city in the Vratnik area above Baščaršija. It provides wonderful views but in a peaceful, relaxed place with a cafe in a garden-like setting within the stone ramparts. There are trees ans shade and one...More

The view over the city from the yellow fortress is very nice. If you like to see more stunning views, you can walk further to the white fortress. This is one of the most important places in Sarajevo.

A lovely walk through a residential part of Sarajevo and up to a viewpoint. There isn't much left in terms of fortress, but there is a lovely panoramic view. In winter the smog really sits over the city, so the view is often obscured, as...More

An interesting climb up through another part of Sarajevo to reach this destination. Not onerous but well worth the effort to see the views over the city. Quiet and not busy with tourists.

As stated before not much of a fortress remind. Event what is left is covered in graffiti and a lot of garbage, but hiking up hill there is worth it simply because of the view of the entire Sarajevo. A must see, must go location.
