大家好,今次我想跟大家分享我的遊記,特別的是我這次去的是個較為冷門的國度-波斯尼亞的首都薩拉熱窩。波斯尼亞全名是波斯尼亞與赫塞哥維納,是前南斯拉夫聯邦的其中一個成員國,90年代經歷了獨立及內戰,令它的發展遠不如其他歐洲諸國。對於這個國家的概念,從前只有學生時期於歷史科上讀過,水過鴨背,也記不得甚麼的特別的印象,直至長大了看多了不同的紀錄片,史記等等,才真正認識到它發生過的悲劇歷史,於是便打算親身去感受一下歷史巨輪走過的痕跡,看看烽火過後的大地是甚麼模樣。

Hello everyone, today I am going to share with you my journey to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Bosina was once the member of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. In the 90's Bosina declared its independence and the Bosnian War broke out. The country suffered al lot from the war and hence development was hindered. I was really impressed and would wish to witness the post-war situation of the country. That's why I decide to pay a visit there.



塞比利是奧斯曼風格的木質噴泉,位於巴什察爾希亞廣場的中心,是薩拉熱窩的地標之一
Sebilj in Sarajevo is the Ottoman-style wooden fountain, located in the Baščaršija Square, which is one of the famous attraction in Sarajevo


旅程始於去年初冬,我從克羅地亞乘坐夜行大巴到波赫的首都薩拉熱窩,到邊境時其他的旅客過境都沒甚麼,唯獨我過關時關員詳細的問起我的底細,也許是來自東方的旅客不常見吧。經歷十小時左右的車程,我終於抵達薩拉熱窩,天都還未亮呢。因為太早的關係,公交車都未開始營運,於是我就體驗了在凌晨時分走在薩拉熱窩街頭的獨特體驗。

In the early winter last year, I took an overnight bus from Croatia to Bosina. When the bus arrive the boarder, everyone was having the usual immigration checking except me. An officer asked me a lot about my journey to Bosina before he stamped on my passport. May be Asian seldom visited the country and I have alerted their concern. Finally I arrived to Sarajevo after ten hours of bus trip. It was too early that the public transportation hasn't start working and thus I had to walked in the street in Sarajevo at 5:00am.

天黑黑中走在無人的街頭

終於找到了旅舍,放下了行李,天剛好亮了。徹夜未睡的我也不覺得累,簡單整理一下就跑到附近的廣場。時間尚早,街上的行人不多,有些店鋪都未營業,這樣我正好可以靜靜的逛逛。

Finally I got to the hostel and relieved myself for a while. Though I didn't sleep well for the whole night, I was too excited to visit the city and thus I rushed out for the sunrise moment. As the time was still early in the morning, there was not much people in the street and I could hanged around without any crowd.

Baščaršija Square in the morning. Pigeons were waiting feeding from the tourists



廣場附近的小巷,很多店鋪在賣特色的紀念品
Streets around the Square, shops were selling the local souvenirs


沿著廣場附近的小街道走,會走到一間老城清真寺。清真寺規模不大,但也是古色古香,看樣子也歷經了一定風霜。我脫了鞋子,進入內部參觀,細小的空間卻擠滿了信眾,可見當地人民何等虔誠,可惜內部是不能拍照的。

Walking along the main street from the Square, I found the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque. It was such a beautiful and peaceful Mosque though it was kinda old. Getting inside the Mosque with my bare feet, I could see many Muslim were praying and having mediation. Sorry that I could not provide the picture as photography was forbidden inside the Mosque.





我好喜歡六角外形的建築及它的圓頂,好特別
I like the special structure of the hexagon-shaped buildings and the dome.


離清真寺不遠,向前望去已可看到耶穌聖心座堂。天主教的教堂跟穆斯林的聖殿,只是咫尺之間,宗教相融,和而不同,不論你是何信仰,大家都會互相尊重,這裡就是一個奇妙的國度,人們就是這樣的親和。

Just a short distance from the Mosque, there was the Sacred Heart Cathedral. It's such amazing that Christian and Muslim could be living together peacefully. It's the reason why I love the people here, as they would always respect you, no matter what your religion or nation was.

這是永恆的火焰,是紀念戰爭中失去的一切,多年來一直都燃燒著
This was the Eternal Flame - to memorize the loss in the War. It has been burning for years and would never burn out.


走在薩拉熱窩的街頭,不難發現房子的外牆都佈滿了子彈孔,這些不是為了裝飾或紀念而做出來的,而是真真正正當年內戰的歷史痕跡,看著可以想像到當年戰火的激烈及慘況。

There always bullet holes in the wall of the houses and buildings here. These were not the decoration or make for the memorizing purpose, instead they were the real evidence from the War. I could imagine the picture of the war at that time.





來到市中心的米里雅茨河畔,走在平平矮矮的小房旁,寧靜舒適。悠閒的散散步,累了坐在河畔休息,這樣就消磨了好半天。

There was a river called River Miljacka running through the city. It was so relaxing walking and taking rest along the riverside.




色彩繽紛的房子,很是漂亮
Beautiful house in the riverside


薩拉熱窩還是相對落後,街上的車子都是老牌子的舊款車
The cars in Sarajevo were kind of old-school - The country was still developing


休息夠了就再踏上旅途,這天的目標是徒步走上附近郊區的一個堡壘遺址。從網上資料及地圖看不怎麼樣遠,可是遺址的位置原來都頗為偏僻,走起來還要左穿右插的,最終都花了個多小時爬上山。可是能從這裡看莊麗的日落,還是值得的。

I walked up the hill to visit the historical ruin of a fort. It was located in the urban area and took me about an hour to get there. I was a bit worried about robbery or kind of stuffs happened on the way to the remain, as the way was totally silent and dark in the evening. But it was worthy to have the journey as the view on the hilltop stunned me for long.




堡壘的遺址

山上的景觀好美好開揚
Beautiful wide view from the hill top


就讓美麗的日落作為今天美好的結束
The sunset was so breathtaking and it gave me a perfect ending of the day

Very nice post, just want to tel you that there was no such a thing like Kingdom of Yugoslavia.

·

Oh really? I just get that name in Wiki, may be I get something wrong..thanks for your reminder and compliment :)
follow you :)

You probably meant last war in Bosnia. At that time Yugoslavia was Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.Not big deal, but anyway. Thanks for reply.

This was very interesting and the many photos were excellent. Two things that surprised me were the amount of graffiti on the buildings and the garish green and yellow building by the river. Call me traditional, but those images seemed so out of place, and even disappointing, to me.

I appreciate being able to read about and see places where I have not traveled. It's always fascinating to glimpse another place, another culture, another viewpoint. Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

·

I was also surprised by the graffiti. @someone have you ever been to the south of Spain? I am currently visiting. Your pictures remind me of a mix of both Spain and Amsterdam. What type of camera are you using for your pics. I used my phone for these pics of Spain. They are nowhere near as sharp as yours but the phone served its purpose. I would love to get your take on my photos.

SPAIN IS BEAUTIFUL


我還沒去過這國度,景色都好漂亮哦,謝謝分享。

看到这里很唏嘘,真的要珍惜眼前的和平啊!

對!從前對戰爭只有概念,沒有感受,此次旅程讓我真正體會到戰爭的殘酷.....願天下和平...金正恩腳踏實地做人...

Hello dear, as a Bosnian and women born in Sarajevo I thank you for this beautiful travel blog. Many people don't even know where Sarajevo is, so you painted a beautiful picture about it. I don't live there any more so nostalgia kicked in. If you are still there try to visit tunnel- war reminder, National Museum, Museum of city of Sarajevo, Olympic museum, there are many things to see there...look at my post welcome to my Sarajevo, and you will find few historical facts...thanks again dear!

·

@dijana969 thanks for your information about Sarajevo and Bosina. I have finished my trip there but I did visited the place you mentioned. And they were all awesome to tell me the history of the country! I have visited Mostar as well and I would say Bosina gave me the most unforgettable experience! I would later share more about my traveling experience, please feel free to follow me for the updated status :)

Very nice pictures 👍👍

·

Welcome!! 很棒的城市哦,還有被問話的經歷,看來真的會畢生難忘;ppp 很喜歡這種有點現代但充滿歷史味道的地方。加油。

hi I am Myanmar

還未有機會去這國家,對它的印象還是只有內戰。多謝你為我帶來這國家的資訊。相片很美麗。相信這國家已經慢慢重建了。

·

我當初也只是對這個國度只有聽說名字的程度,走過這片大地才有更多真實的體會!

Sarajevo really is very beautyfull modern Otoman style city. I higly recommend it, just like all of the capitals on Balkan:Zagreb,Belgrade,Skopje,Priština,Podgorica, and many other not capitals!

Such a great view. Will definitely add it to my tour diary.

your photos are really beautiful!!

beautiful...nice pictures. thanks for sharing

每次听到萨拉热窝的名字就觉得好热血

·

對...我也是...現實的戰爭卻是殘酷...

Great photos thank you for sharing!

very nice, good work kit!

·

thanks bro! you did gave me some encouragement.... though I am still a bit grey now...haha....you too!
cheer up and carry me pls!

Seems like a great journey.

A fascinating article and set of photographs. This is a city that was in the news daily for such negative things and to see it now is quite uplifting. Obviously the sad history lingers and is evident but it looks like it's doing a good job of picking itself up and looks like a very interesting place to visit. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your post! I love Sarajevo, its one of my absolute favourite cities in the world! Love the food, friendly people, the mountains around and the special feeling you get with all the historic things happened in this city...

Lovely picture and capture of the city! Definitely a place I would like to travel to and see for myself.

Captivating Photos! Hoping to see even more amazing ones being posted!
And let me be a bit rude, haha and say my country offers no lesser! Have a look at my recent post! Do leave an UpVote and follow, to anyone who is interested more in knowing about India!
