1425 days of the siege, 500 000 shells were fired at the city. The longest siege in modern warfare – it lasted three times as long as the siege of Stalingrad. The ring of the siege spread in the length of 200 km around the city. The tunnel was the only way in and out of the city for the population of Sarajevo and for supplies.
The tunnel itself is a wonder of creation as it was constructed, planned and dug in secret in a period of 3 months with workers working round the clock and receiving payment as a pack of cigarettes (which was a great commodity in war times) for digging from both ends and removing 2800 square meters of soil and finally connecting the two ends of the tunnel on June 30th 1993. This tour is focused and shows you the resistance and spirit of the people of the city and their fight for freedom.
