Our journey in Bosnia and Hercegovina is coming to an end with the last day upon us. We plane to leave Sarajevo for Tuzla which is the site of the airport. Before taking off we want to refresh ourselves. The hottest day of our vacation is upon us. However, there is one more place close to Sarajevo which we want to see. This is the remains of once a bobsleigh track used for XIV Winter Olympis in 1984. Then the games took place in Yugoslavia. The trakc is located in the Trebevic mountain range southeast from Sarajevo on Jahorina mountain. The track was severely damaged during the war and mines were laid around. The remains of the track have been frequented by tourists lately. It is rather now a war memorial than a place which would be a memorial to the Olympics.
