Sarajevo is decorated with small city trams that seem to run away from time. Endless small cafes and cozy restaurants can be easily found on the main trade area of the city named Bascarsija. Besides them you will find here many jewelry stores, souvenir shops and small pastries. In addition to this there are two famous squares in the city. These are Gazi Husrev-beg, which is known as the former important point of the Silk Road, and Pigeon Square, on which you will really find whole flocks of pigeons.
Some Orthodox places of interest have survived after the civil war in Sarajevo. These are Cathedral Church of the Virgin Mary, the old Church of Saint Gabriel and Michael, the Old Synagogue (one of three surviving), which now holds the exhibition of the Jewish Museum with the famous Code of the Haggadah, the City Hall built in the Moorish style, and the Cathedral built in the XVIII century. The buildings that have been preserved in Sarajevo since the reign of Osman dominate in the architectural ensemble of the city. These are the most magnificent mosque of the country Begova-Jamia, approximately a hundred of other mosques, the Bascarsija Tower, the Turkish fortress with twelve towers located on a mountain ledge, madrassas Kursumli with a library, the old caravanserai, and numerous commercial buildings of the Turkish era.
