On the first day of the conference and after the closing ceremony, several additional activities are planned:
- Besieged Sarajevo exhibition (September 26)
“With this exhibition, we have tried to avoid giving final judgements, ideological opinions and qualifications. We are leaving them to history science and time. We have primarily opted for being true witnesses of the time and events behind the Sarajevo “closed doors”, with the authentic exhibits being, hopefully, documents that the future will appreciate.”– the Museum curators
The ticket is already included in your conference fee, and the group will have a guided tour of the exhibition on the first day of the conference after the reception.
Visit to the Sarajevo City Hall (discounted ticket price for our group 8 BAM (4 EUROS) (September 28)
A storybook neo-Moorish striped facade makes the triangular City Hall (1896) Sarajevo's most beautiful Austro-Hungarian–era building. Seriously damaged during the 1990s siege, it finally reopened in 2014 after laborious reconstruction. Its colorfully restored interior and stained-glass ceiling are superb.
Cable car ride to the mountain Trebević (ticket price 20 BAM (10 EUROS) for visitors, and 6 BAM (3 EUROS) for residents) (September 28)
Reopened in 2018 after being destroyed during the war, Sarajevo's cable car once again shuttles people on a nine-minute ride, climbing 500m to a viewpoint 1164m up on Mt Trebević, which was the venue for the bobsleigh course in the 1984 Winter Olympics. It has now been named after a former guard, Ramo Biber, who was killed in 1992 at the start of the war.
