Take this unusual and unique journey through 550 years of history of the city of Sarajevo, visiting places that you will rarely find in touristic handbooks.
Cemeteries in every city are places of peace, peace, but also of something mystical, interesting, incomprehensible.

We will visit the old cemetery Alifakovac and the Old Jewish cemetery, both protected by the state as the cultural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina, then the memorial cemetery Kovači and the grave of the first president of independent state of Bosnia and Herzegovina, after that we will visit the Orthodox cemetery St. Mark where members of Young of Bosnia organization were buried, then we walk to the Catholic Cemetery St. Joseph and visit the grave of one of the most important poets of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Silvija Strahimir Kovačević.
