Situated within the Sarajevo valley of Bosnia, the city is surrounded by the Olympic mountains of Bjelašnica, Igman, Jahorina, Trebević, and Treskavica. Hosting the 1984 Winter Olympics was one of the key moments in the history of Sarajevo. Trebević Cable Car, which has been recently rebuilt, served as the city’s key landmark during this time. The year 2019 will see it host the European Youth Olympic Festival.

As a capital, it has been established in the 15th century when Isa-Beh Isaković had several structures built, including a marketplace, a public bath and his castle, then called saray, which gave the city the name that remains to this day. The year 1885 saw the Sarajevo as the first city in Europe and the second city in the world with a full-time electric tram network. In 1914, it was the site of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria by local activist Gavrilo Princip.
