  • Vučko – stylized wolf used as a mascot of 14th Winter Olympics held in Sarajevo in February 1984,
  • Karim Zaimović – Sarajevo journalist and writer who died in final days of Siege of Sarajevo but left an amazing trace in this city.

  • STOP 2: Remote Parts of Sarajevo

Second part of the tour will take us to some bit more remote parts of Sarajevo where local artists could do their work in peace and relaxation. Abandoned places like Olympic Bobsled (Graffiti and Street Art Mecca), Access – former military barracks Marshall Tito, Crni Vrh – Gorica and few others, are not only rich with street art, but are also amazing monuments of Yugoslavian brutalist architecture and stunning memorials to the past times.

Special focus is on Sarajevo 1984 abandoned Olympic bobsled which is by far the World’s most amazing street art and graffiti location where distinguished graffiti artists like HONET and STAKA were once “performing”. It is home place to hundreds of amazing works of art, and surely is unmissable location in Sarajevo for many reasons.

During the day we will have all the necessary equipment and skilful artist, to teach our guests to tryout their skills and leave permanent trace in Sarajevo, by painting some of their own art.

Great tours to really dig beneath the surface and hear from locals

The company name Funky Tours doesn’t do them justice – neither the American slang or Anglo definition! I would choose words like authentic, honest, genuine and relevant.

I enjoyed three tours with these Funky Folks, each with a different guide. Each guide was local and gave a really genuine insight into Bosnian heritage and contemporary life. I felt that I really got to understand the country from real insiders that took me well beyond the tourist trail.

My favourite was the graffiti tour of Sarajevo. To be fair, I had the advantage of a private tour, so we chatted away about Sarajevo’s creative scene and emerging street art movement while exploring some of the coolest bits of the city. By the end of my three tours, I felt my initial limited perceptions of Sarajevo has been truly challenged and I left the country as a new, empowered advocate of Bosnia and Sarajevo. Do visit. And do explore with Sarajevo Funky Tours to really dig beneath the surface.

An amazing Street Art Tour of Sarajevo

We as graffiti lovers and part time artists ourselves wanted to learn more about street art industry of Sarajevo and we booked graffiti tour with Sarajevo Funky Tours. What an amazing experience it was.

Initially you are covering the remote parts of Sarajevo that are totally of the beaten path, but are located within the city itself and following the story of street art development in Sarajevo since 1990ies. War time ruins and abandoned places where local and foreign graffiti boys and girls are doing their masterpieces are simply worth exploring, and experience like this heavily helps you better understand destination you are travelling through. Murals of David Bowie, Karim Zaimovic and few others are simply true works of art.

Last part of the tour was Sarajevo Olympic bobsled which is true graffiti wonderland and place which you could never imagine to exist. It is full of graffiti art of local and world famous artists who have been around Sarajevo and leaving their traces behind. Our guide was able to give us explanation on every single graffiti we asked for, as he himself is one of the most famous local artists.

Graffiti workshop was the creme on top of the cake, as that gave us amazing opportunity to paint our own thing and learn more about techniques local artists use. Graffiti painting goes well with hot tea or hot wine Funky Tours team provided us, as it was all snowed out and quite cold during the January.

We hope to be back and experience this tour once again.
