From July 1993 until the end of the Siege in late February 1996, the Sarajevo War Tunnel was the only connection besieged Sarajevo had with the outside world.

The 800­-meter-­long corridor is a little over a meter wide and has an average height of 1.5 meters.

Thanks to the tunnel which construction began in secret, the city regained access to food and electric energy,weapons etc. After the war, about 20 meters of the tunnel became part of a museum which contains many items from the time of the Siege of Sarajevo – the longest­-running siege of any city in modern history
