Full description
The tour starts at 8 AM in front of Info Bosnia Tourist Information Center located on main pedestrian street Ferhadija, just next to "Sarajevo Meeting of Cultures", but can be arranged from elsewhere, if requested. The city of Srebrenica is located around two and a half hours from the city of Sarajevo. The road takes you through a desolate, mountainous area with beautiful nature. While you are able to enjoy the scenery you will start learning about the history of Yugoslavia, so you can better understand the genocide of Srebrenica.  Your first stop is in front of the battery factory, used by UN forces during the war in Bosnia. Located in these previous headquarters of the Dutch battalion of the UN forces, is now one of the most modern museums in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the “Museum of Srebrenica Genocide”. There you will meet the curator and experience first-hand stories about the survival in the Srebrenica enclave. From the Museum of Srebrenica Genocide, continue to the Memorial room, where you will be able to hear the stories of the victims, which were recorded by a local journalist. A part of the Memorial room is also dedicated to the people responsible for the massacre. Victims that were found and identified are resting at the Memorial cemetery. Now the cemetery counts 6575 victims, but this number rises every year. Once you visited Potocari Memorial Center, continue your journey to the city of Srebrenica. Once the industrial leader in the area, and one of the oldest settlements of people is now a ghost city. Srebrenica is also the location for the lunch, as there are not a lot of restaurants nearby.  After Srebrenica, return to Sarajevo, where you will arrive around 6 PM and your tour ends.

A journey to remember for definite. My tour guide was incredible, his knowledge, his passion, his story, his manners. Thank you so much for the journey. If you're thinking about going on a tour with these fellas, don't hesitate. They even provided food! And as a journalist myself, my driver allowed me to stop anywhere and record things. 10/10

The events that took place in Srebrenica in 1995 are devastating and show how the international community miserably failed to save the lives of thousands of innocent people. Learning about this, and passing on to other generations is incredibly important. The tour couldn't have been any better, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to present a topic as complicated as this one in a very gentle, empathetic and compassionate manner.

It's hard to review a trip like this because it is not a 'fun' day - it isn't meant to be. However, it was an informative, interesting and impactful experience. My guide, Dragan, was excellent. He was polite, attentive, and patient with answering my many (hopefully not too stupid) questions, even though revisiting his memories was obviously not an easy thing for him to do. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to gain some understanding of what happened at Srebrenica and during the war in general.
