tested by Sarajevo Canton Police Department

Sarajevo is the capital city of the Bosnia and Herzegovina. It belongs to one of ten cantons of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BH).

Surrounded by the Dinaric Alps and residing next to the Milijacka River, it is a beautiful destination to be visited, with a variety of historical tourist destinations, yet a treacherous driving environment for locals.
