About Sarajevo War Tunnel Museum

High quality hoto of Sarajevo War Tunnel Museum - Bosnia and Herzegovina

In the midst of the Bosnian War, during the Siege of Sarajevo that lasted for 4 years, the people of Sarajevo were trapped and starving, living in their basements. In 1993 the Bosnian army built the Sarajevo Tunnel known as the Tunnel of Hope. The purpose of the tunnel was to deliver food and supplies to those in need. The 800 meters long, 1 m wide, 1.6 meters high tunnel was the city's lifeline to the outside world. Historians estimate that more than 1 million trips were taken through the tunnel and about 20 million tons of food were transported through here. Today, about 20 meters of tunnel are part of a museum which contains a collection of objects, archival documents and authentic video material made during the time of the Siege of Sarajevo.
