Sarajevo, being - again - an idyllic city, full of culture, can get hectic at times. In such a case a stay at the "Cafe Karabit" could be a welcome change: It is a cafe, a bookstore, a wine-coinnaisseurs heaven and a place for cultural events. It belongs to the same guy who also owns the "buybook" bookstore and printing house. This is another example of the sometimes twisted humor of the Sarajevans: "buybook", if said by a local, sounds much like "baibok" - which is the local, Sarajevan-Turkish slangword for "prison"...
