Four tips for a more complete experience of Sarajevo
Let us give you some useful tips to make your stay in Sarajevo as pleasant as possible:
1. Intimacy among people is completely acceptable in Sarajevo. So locals who have just met you can ask questions about work, family or marital status, which in some other areas could be considered extremely personal questions. Also, don’t surprise by frequent shoulder straps, grunts, and kissing as a sign of greetings.
2. Coffee in Sarajevo is a good idea at any time of the day. Drinking coffee is a kind of ritual and it is a reason for the gathering of friends, or family and conversation. If someone invite you to their home, expect that the host will first offer you coffee. It is customary to take off shoes at the entrance, when entering the house. Also, it’s a nice habit to bring some nice gift to the host.
3. Remember that people in Sarajevo don’t include tips in the account amounts. We can advise you to leave a tip in gratitude for a good service. In cafes, the amount is rounded, while in restaurants, the tip of ten percent of the amount of the account is sufficient.
4. Religious buildings in Sarajevo are open to visitors, but you should be properly dressed during the visit. During visits to mosques, women should be in trousers or longer skirts, covered hands, and wear a scarf over their heads, and men should wear pants below their knees. When entering the mosque, it is obligatory to remove the shoes. Photographing in religious objects is not acceptable only at the time of prayer, while in all other circumstances taking pictures is permitted.
