Tunnel war

The tunnel of war is an amazing place. It was home to a normal family during the war and the invasion of Sarajevo by the Yugoslav army. The owner offered to build a tunnel that would leave his home and go straight to the neutral zone controlled by the UN by the airport. The tunnel, which measures 800m long, allowed the 300 000 inhabitants of Sarajevo to receive food but also gasoline and weapons during the three years of the military blockade. The tunnel took four months to build, during which hundreds of people died trying to go through the airport to get to the free zone to buy food for their family. When the tunnel was opened, many wagons were going nonstop along carrying goods. With courage, people learned to survive and not to leave the city. It meant also that people could have a phone line to communicate with the outside world. The museum tells the history of the tunnel.

An unforgettable place

One of the places we wanted to see on my visit to the Balkans was the tunnel of war in Sarajevo, is a spectacular on the outskirts of the city (you will be playing go by public transport, tram + bus) or hire a private tour, depending on the time and money you'd better have one option or another. Once you get there you realize the importance of place, a poor family decides to help the Bosnian army create a tunnel that takes you from the besieged party (Sarajevo) to the clear zone (where the airport is located), through that tunnel animals, food, drink, cigarettes, weapons are transported ... everything I needed the city and citizens to survive the major site of the modern era. During the visit we may A short video plus a mini chat where we discussed the importance dle tunnel they called ... though the war might have been christened the hope, through this tunnel survived a city for 4 years!.

Un lugar inolvidable

Uno de los lugares que quería conocer en mi visita a los balcanes era el Túnel de la guerra en Sarajevo, es un lugar espectacular a las afueras de la ciudad (te tocará ir en transporte público , tranvía + bus) o contratar un tour privado, dependiendo del tiempo y del dinero que tengas será mejor una opción u otra.

Una vez llegas allí te das cuenta de la importancia del lugar, una familia humilde decide con la ayuda del ejército bosnio crear un túnel que llevará desde la parte sitiada (Sarajevo) hasta la zona libre (donde se encuentra el aeropuerto), a través de ese túnel se transporta animales, comida, bebida, cigarrillos, armamento... todo lo que necesitaba la ciudad y los ciudadanos para sobrevivir al mayor sitio de la era moderna.

En la visita nos podrán un vídeo explicativo además de una mini charla donde nos comentarán la importancía del túnel, llamado... el de la guerra aunque podría haber sido bautizado como el de la esperanza, gracias a este túnel sobrevivió una ciudad durante 4 años!!!.

Hi all, i would like to share somethi...

Hi all, I would like to share something I learned and experienced during my visit to Sarajevo during these days. Fortunately my traveling companion and I had the great fortune to meet a Spanish soldier who works for NATO and is currently stationed in this city that I think anyone would leave indifferent in all aspects, but especially about suffering who has had to spend all Bosnian village after cruel and constant attacks by the Serbs. The Sarajevo tunnel is just a sample of the ingenuity of a people under siege for almost three years, had to find solutions to alleviate, among other things, hunger. I enclose a couple of photos. In the first, a map. In it we see how Sarajevo is surrounded by high hills were occupied by Serbian elejército and that allowed him the whole city management. Tambén appears as the area occupied by the airport is the only natural outlet of the valley. On this International aid came as Paulinete told us, with which these families built the tunnel crossing under the entire width of the track. The second photo in the tunnel.

Hola a todos,

Me gustaría compartir algo de lo aprendido y vivido durante mi visita a Sarajevo durante estos días. Afortunadamente mi compañero de viaje y yo tuvimos la enorme suerte de conocer a un soldado español que trabaja para la OTAN y que actualmente está destinado en esta ciudad que creo que a nadie dejaría indiferente en todos los aspectos, pero sobre todo, en cuanto al sufrimiento que ha tenido que pasar todo el pueblo Bosnio tras los ataques crueles y constantes por parte de los Serbios. El túnel de Sarajevo no es más que una muestra del ingenio de un pueblo que sitiado durante casi tres años, tuvo que buscar soluciones para poder paliar, entre otras cosas, el hambre. Adjunto un par de fotos. En la primera, aparece un mapa. En él podemos observar cómo sarajevo se encuentra rodeada de altas colinas que estaban ocupadas por elejército Serbio y que le permitia el contro de toda la ciudad. Tambén aparece cómo la zona ocupada por el aeropuerto es la única vía de salida natural de dicho valle. Por éste llegaba la ayuda Internacional tal y como nos ha dicho Paulinete, con lo cual éstas familias construyeron el túnel cruzando por debajo todo el ancho de la pista. La segunda foto en del interior del túnel.

The tunnel of the war is an incredibl...

The tunnel of the war is an incredible place. It is the home of a family like any other, that during the siege of Sarajevo in the Yugoslav army, suggested that a tunnel that ran from the cellar to be built in the unoccupied zone, passed under the airport, area of ​​the UN to reach the occupied zone and the center of the city. The tunnel, which measures 800m long, has allowed 300,000 people in Sarajevo to buy food, but also weapons and gasoline during the three-year siege. It took four months to be built, during which hundreds of people lost their lives trying to go through other paths open to go to refuel. After opening the tunnel, there laid the rails and the back and forth of cars were incessant. The solidarity of the people and their courage helped them survive the longest siege in history, and not to leave their city. The food was more abundant, but thanks to the tunnel was also able to get people to treat them seriously injured, and a phone line for the city to remain connected with the outside world. The museum tells the history of the tunnel, and the owners of the house are still there, which is exciting.

Le tunnel de la guerre est un endroit incroyable. C´est la maison d´une famille comme les autres, qui durant le siège de Sarajevo par l´armée Yougoslave, a proposé que l´on construise un tunnel qui partait de sa cave, en zone libre, passait sous l´aéroport, zone de l´ONU, pour rejoindre la zone occupée, et le centre de la ville.

Le tunnel, qui mesure 800m de long, a permis aux 300 000 habitants de Sarajevo de s´approvisionner en vivres, mais aussi en armes et en essence, durant les trois ans de siège. Il a mis quatre mois à être construit, durant lesquels plusieurs centaines de personnes ont perdu la vie en essayant de passer par d´autres chemins à ciel ouvert pour aller se ravitailler. Une fois le tunnel ouvert, on y posa des rails et les allers retours de wagons furent incessants. La solidarité des habitants et leur bravoure leur ont permis de survivre le plus long siège de l´histoire, et de ne pas abandonner leur ville.

La nourriture était plus abondante, mais grâce au tunnel on a également pu faire passer les gens sérieusement blessés pour les soigner, et une ligne de téléphone pour que la ville reste connectée avec l´extérieur. Le musée raconte l´histoire du tunnel, et les propriétaires de la maison sont toujours là, ce qui est émouvant.
