Aprendimos mucho acerca del sitio a la ciudad de Sarajevo entre el 1992 y el 1995. El guía hizo un trabajo espectacular para contarnos una versión lo más objetiva posible a la vez que personal sobre la vida en tiempos de guerra en la ciudad. El recorrido pasa por algunos de los puntos más relevantes de ese período y las 2 horas se hacen muy amenas gracias a la actitud cercana de Meme :)
