Visit Sarajevo War Tunnel Museum in 2024

Located near the Sarajevo Airport, the Sarajevo War Tunnel Museum offers a haunting glimpse into the harsh realities faced by the city's residents during the longest city siege in modern history, which lasted from 1992 to 1996. The tunnel, often called the Tunnel of Hope, played a crucial role in the survival of the city, acting as a lifeline for supplies and a means of escape. Spanning around 800 meters, the tunnel was dug by the besieged citizens to connect the city to the free territories beyond the airport, controlled by the UN. The museum exhibits items from the wartime, photographs, and footage, presenting a comprehensive and visceral portrayal of life during the siege.
The Sarajevo War Tunnel Museum serves not only as a remembrance of the past but also as an emblem of hope and unity for the future. It's a deeply moving experience that educates visitors about the spirit of Sarajevo and the indomitable will of its people.
