Sarajevo, day 5

It was a beautiful sunny day today so we decided to hike up to the abandoned 1984 Olympics bobsled run. We had coffee & a treat on a patio nearby, then walked back to town by a diffent route. A most excellent day!

Sarajevo's main train station

The Avaz Twist Tower, currently the tallest skyscraper in the former Yugoslavia. We went to a cafe at the top for the views ... the blue glass gave a tint to the following two photos. 

Cool old building
