New Year’s Eve in Sarajevo: Tips

The city is traditionally dotted with public and private New Year’s parties. In case you don’t have plans yet but want to do something on Sunday evening, here are a few interesting places.

There is always the city-sponsored outdoor party, this year organized at the SCC mall plaza. The star of the evening at the outdoor party is Zdravko Čolić, a Sarajevo-born singer who came to fame in former Yugoslavia with his pop hits.
