Types of journeys: Yellow Bastion and White Bastion, Back to history

Yellow Bastion: In 1727 the Bosnian governor Gazi Ahmed Pasha Rustempašić Skopljak decided to build the wall around Vratnik with its 450 houses, and to leave enough room for another 450 houses so the residents of Sarajevo have safe haven during the war.

The construction was completed in 1739, during the rule of Hekimoglu Ali Pasha, and in the end there were five bastions, three Kapi-Kule (Gate Towers) and five gates in the walls. One of the bastions was built on the cliff Jekovac, by which is called Jekovačka bastion, but because of its yellowish stone it was named Yellow bastion, and that name has remained until today. From this point some of the most interesting panorama photos can be made, and the view is astonishing. White Bastion is a reconstructed medieval fortress that overlooks the Sarajevo valley. The fortress is thought to have been built around 1550, though historians have differing opinions as to its origins. Strong Gothic-Hungarian influences can be seen in the design of this rectangular stone fort. Along with most other structures in Sarajevo, the White Bastion was severely damaged during the Bosnian War, but plans for its rejuvenation are currently underway.

Sit back and relax
In practice, we often encounter situations when the event is organized by the company itself because it does not seem as an issue. “ The hall shall just be rented, we should come up with some program and send invitations”.
