Days 7 and 8: Sarajevo, Bosnia

Charming montage of sepia Sarajevo vs today's Sarajevo, with lovely folksy old Bosnian song...

This is where World War One started, in the months after a Serbian anarchist named Gavrilo Princip shot Austria-Hungary's crown prince Franz Ferdinand (no relation to the arty fey UK rock group) on June 28, 1914..

One British traveler's impressions:

Sarajevo recovers! I'm very happy that Sarajevo has overcome the lament of the Palestines and Israelis: too much history, not enough geography..
