Our hotel was on the opposite side of the old town center, where are the main tourist attractions of Sarajevo, crossing the river already arrived at our first stop, a St. Joseph Church, Bosnia today is a country divided between Catholics and Muslims, for this reason there you will find many churches and mosques.
A Ali Pasha's Mosque, It is one of several city mosques, little, prettier.
A Nativity Cathedral of the Theotokos, It is the largest city of the church, right in the center, We could not go in and see what it was like inside.
