Walking through the old town Bascarsiye in Sarajevo, really is like walking back in time. We decided to have coffee at an old former Caravansaray (meaning castle of caravans), which you can find on Ferhadija walkway.
The han was used as an inn, warehouse space, stable and accomodation for traders who often travelled from both near and far. It was funded by the Gazi Husrevbegova (a name you will often hear and read about in Sarajevo) fund, but got its name much later from the inn operator Mustafa Moric.
Today it hosts many cafés and restaurants and some absolutely amazing local Bosnian and Persian rugs.
