19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Down Memory Lane

Less than a decade before the Bosnian War and the Sarajevo Siege, Sarajevo hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics. Many of the sports venues were damaged in battle and the bobsled track was used by the Bosnian Serbs as a base for artillery during the Sarajevo Siege from 1992-1996. Hidden by nature, the abandoned Olympic bobsled and luge track sits at the top of Mount Trebević (with an altitude of 5,338 feet).
