    The Tunnel of Hope was the only way in and out of the city of Sarajevo. Built under the Sarajevo Airport Runway, it was the only means of supplies for the citizens of the city. Hundreds of citizens would walk through and many would die as it was surrounded by the Serbian Army Forces.

    The entrances to the tunnel are below buildings. On the Dobrinja side, under an apartment building, and on the Butmir side underneath a private family home. The private home is now the Tunnel of Hope Museum which displays a number of articles from the war, photographs, and video recordings of war scenery.

    The tunnel was constructed manually by the Bosnian Army and volunteering citizens. The workers exchanged shifts during the digging process which was carried out through the entire 24 hours of the day. They were awarded with a package of cigarettes; which were priced high during the times. The tunnel was built within 4 months due to continuous work manual work, digging with shovels and transferring earth with wheelbarrows.

    This tour will give you an intense experience through which you will conjure up the experience of the city’s population during the turbulent war times and the resistance through which this fight was fought.
