Sarajevo is a ‘tough’ city, that is, it is clearly in recovery mode from the devastation by the Serbian armies in the ’92-’95 Yugolslav War. It is also in recovery from a forty year communist controlled lifestyle in which life was sparse with little hope of personal prosperity. There are plenty of remnants and reminders of those ugly years mixed in with new shiny buildings, new prosperity, new freedoms, upscale car, some fashion, youthful rock music and pop culture. Universities are busy teaching the trades of technology, science, design and art. The museums are popular and exhibiting great art and artifacts including the famous 14th century Sarajevo Haggadah Jewish Codex (worth a billion USD).
