Why take this tour?
The end of 15th century in Europe was the end of peaceful life for some of the people. After the fall of Granada in 1492, began the persecution of Jews from Spain and Portugal. Find out how in the 16th century the Sarajevans developed new neighbors – the Sephardim Jews and how life looked like in the Sijavus Pasha’s Quarter. Discover what they used to do, what songs they sang and which specialties they used to prepare. You'll also learn about the fascinating Ladino language. On this tour, you can hear about all of this. The tour will tell you the story of the Jewish Community in Sarajevo, the story of Sephardim and Ashkenazim Jews, their life, happiness, suffering, persecution, place of their eternal resting and place of struggle with death and suffering.

When we first started providing guiding services in Sarajevo in 2000, there were just a few of us. We were full of enthusiasm, creative ideas and ready to work hard, apply effort and learn. With the passage of time some of us went on different paths, finding different business spheres, but those who stayed, they stayed completely the same - creative, professional and dedicated to something they like. All of these years brought us a lot of friendships, business contacts, meeting with many important people and delegations. We can proudly say that any important event in Sarajevo during the last decade wasn't without us. We just want it to be the same. We want our guests to become and remain our friends, to visit us again, and once they leave our city or country they should take away with themselves only positive memories. We guarantee that with the Insiders you will always get more than you'd expect.
