Tunnel of Hope in Sarajevo

The Museum: Tunnel of Hope is the most visited touris destination in Sarajevo Region.
The war tunnel was the only connection between the besieged Sarajevo and the rest of the world from July 1993 until the end of the siege of Sarajevo at the end of February 1996.
Tunnel excavation work lasted more than half a year, digging with picks and shovels, and the only illumination to the workers was war candles (vessels filled with edible oil with a wick of rope).

Finally, on the night of July 30, 1993, the tunnel was dug and Sarajevo gained access to the world. The exit is just over one in width, one and a half meters high, and about 800 meters long.

Thanks to the tunnel, telephone connections, the supply of oil, and the supply of food to the besieged city were restored.

After the war, a part of the tunnel about 20 meters in length became a museum, which holds numerous exhibits from the siege of Sarajevo, the longest siege of a city in the history of modern warfare.
This is the place that ended The 20th Century.
