      Flavors of Sarajevo: A Guided Walking Tour and Cuisine Tasting

      Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina
      From (USD) $62 Per Person (Based on 2)
      • City tour: Check out the capital's unique blend of Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian architecture at its regal neo-Moorish City Hall, a 15th-century clock tower, and a mosque built for an Islamic governor, among other sights.
      • Burek and chewaps: Try a savory Bosnian treat of cheese and meat wrapped in light, unleavened dough and baked until crispy and flaky, along with seasoned sausage links that have been a beloved street food here for over a century.
      • Coffee and baklava: The texture is similar, but don't call it Turkish – Bosnians take pride in their own unique version of coffee, and it goes perfectly with sweet baklava.
      About This Sarajevo Tour

      You wouldn't think some phyllo dough, chopped nuts, and honey could be the source of a continental culinary conflict.

      You'd be wrong. Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, and other nations in and around the Balkans all claim to be responsible for creating early versions of the baklava enjoyed all over the world today.

      The Greeks point out that their contribution – the phyllo dough preparation technique that gives the pastry its trademark flakiness – helped baklava grow in popularity worldwide. The word "phyllo" itself comes from the Greek word for "leaf," a nod to its thinness.

      But other gastronomic historians believe baklava truly came into its own under Muslim rule in the 15th century. The Ottomans took their food seriously: The royal kitchen at Istanbul staffed over 1,000 cooks and assistants. Ottoman culture viewed baklava as a luxury reserved for society's elite, so the imperial kitchen took the pre-Ottoman recipe and created a sweeter, richer version meant only for the aristocracy.

      Thankfully, baklava is a luxury enjoyed by the masses these days. Its muddled history spans multiple cultures and civilizations and may go back more than 2,000 years. But for the people who love it, it never gets old.

      Sweet tooth

      Bosnians are very particular about their coffee. It's always served in a long copper pot known as a dzezva and boiled twice, to create a thicker layer of foam at the top. And don't expect Turkish-style sweetened coffee – Bosnians sweeten theirs by holding cubes of sugar between their teeth or under their tongue as they sip.
