Trip Planner: Europe / Bosnia and Herzegovina / Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina / Sarajevo Canton / Sarajevo / Sarajevo War Tunnel
During the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, Bosniak forces used Sarajevo War Tunnel to circulate between Sarajevo and the area controlled by the United Nations. Food, weapons, and humanitarian aid were brought to the city secretly through this underground passage, dug entirely by hand right below a war zone. Walk through this 800 m (2,624 ft) tunnel lined with wood, steel, and cables. Experience the moist smell of mud and dust, knowing that those who built it worked in waist-high water and experienced repeated shelling from above. You can ask for a guided tour at the site.

I had been in and out of Sarajevo during the war, and there always rumours about a supposed tunnel that helped to sustain the besieged city. Quite interesting to visit the museum from that perspective. This being said, there is not much of the real tunnel to be seen other than lots of historic pictures, in part with quite detailed and exhaustive descriptions.
