Sarajevo



Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Yes, definitely. Sidewalks are a mess. The city is definitely not handicapped-friendly. - Dec 25, 2017
Yes, it is not a disability-friendly city. - Sep 26, 2017
Yes. Lots of stairs, parking on sidewalks, no lifts.... - May 26, 2016
Yes. LOTS of steep hills and pathways with stairs. Narrow to no sidewalks. - Aug 19, 2014
Tons. Lots of hills and crumbling side walks that mostly serve as parking places. - Nov 26, 2012
This is not a handicapped-accessible city in the least. A couple of newer malls are accessible, but that's it. You never see any handicapped people out and about in Bosnia. I only saw a large number during a period when a Moroccan "healer" was in town at the Olympic stadium -- then many came out for that. - Aug 17, 2011
A lot of difficulties. Broken sidewalks, limited ramps. - May 31, 2011
It would be hard, but not impossible. New facilities like recently construced malls do have ramps, and most two story shopping facilities have elevators. - May 18, 2010
A lot. Bumpy sidewalks, few wheelchair-accessible sidewalks, many buildings do not have elevators, or the elevators often break down. - Jun 19, 2009
Getting around town would be challenging as handicap facilities are not common. Many streets have narrow or no sidewalks and people tend to park everywhere blocking the walking areas. - Mar 18, 2009
A lot, no side walks, a lot of holes and poles where you don't expect them etc. - Dec 17, 2008
