Sarajevo Tunnel (Tunel Spasa) Tours

star-5
14 Reviews
Sarajevo Tunnel (Tunel Spasa)
The Sarajevo Tunnel (Tunel Spasa) is an underground tunnel turned war museum, and the best way to learn about the Siege of Sarajevo in Bosnia. Dug out by hand with shovels and picks, the 2,625-foot (800-meter) tunnel served as a lifeline for the city in 1993, connecting the Dobrinja and Butmir neighborhoods to the free Bosnian territory just beyond the Sarajevo Airport. After the Bosnian War ended, the house whose cellar served as an entrance to the tunnel was turned into a museum.

Visitors can watch an 18-minute movie about the war, the blockade and the tunnel experience, and view photographs, maps, military equipment and uniforms, as well as a variety of tools and documents. Visitors can also enter about 20 meters of the tunnel. The museum is a stop on nearly all war-themed tours of Sarajevo and guides can offer valuable insight and perspective.

Practical Info

The Sarajevo Tunnel and museum is located at Tuneli bb 1 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and spans from the Dobrinja and Butmir neighborhoods to the Sarajevo Airport. The museum is open 9am to 5pm from April through October, and 9am to 4pm November through March. Admission costs 10 KM for adults and 5 KM for students with a student card.

The tunnel is accessible by public transport, taking tram 3 to Ildiza (the last terminal of the line) and switching to bus 32 toward Kotorac. Get off on the last stop, cross the Tilava Bridge and then turn left to walk down Tuneli for about a third of a mile (500 meters). Getting to the tunnel can be tricky: the bus runs every 90 minutes on Sundays, and you may have to walk about 30 minutes from Ilidza. Consider taking a taxi or joining an organized tour for easier access.
Address: Tuneli bb 1, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Hours: Daily: 9am–4pm

Best tour if you want to know more about Sarajevos recent history and siege 1992 - 1995. Includes visit to Tunnel of Hope Museum. Tunnel of Hope was an underground tunnel constructed between March and June 1993 during the Siege of Sarajevo in the midst of the Bosnian War. It was built by the Bosnian Army in order to link the city of Sarajevo, which was entirely cut off by Serbian forces, with Bosnian-held territory on the other side of the Sarajevo Airport, an area controlled by the United Nations. The tunnel linked the Sarajevo neighborhoods of Dobrinja and Butmir, allowing food, war supplies, and humanitarian aid to come into the city, and allowing people to get out. The tunnel became a major way of bypassing the international arms embargo and providing the city defenders with weaponry. This tour also includes visit to Bobsled on Trebević mountain, build for 1984 Olympic games.
