You can read plenty about the old city of Sarajevo elsewhere on this website but for sure it’s an interesting place. You don’t have to be too old to remember the 1984 Winter Olympics and then to witness what happened eight years later when the city (and the region) were involved in a damaging four year conflict. The reconstruction of Sarajevo enabled it to embark on a new age of economic prosperity which has resulted in it now becoming one of the planet’s favourite places to visit and not just the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In this post we’re interested in something very specific because it’s related to what we like to do – casinos. We like a gamble every now and then and Central Asia and Eastern Europe offers a great range of options for the discerning blackjack or roulette player. Sarejevo is no exception except that it only has one casino. The good news is that it’s a good one.
The Coloseum Club in Sarajevo is part of the Europe wide HIT Group who’s portfolio covers a range of diverse businesses. The Coloseum Club is always a favourite destination for visitors, especially those who like to spend a few hours playing a few hands of poker or taking advantage of the slot machines. It’s open 24 hours a day so if that flight arrives at an awkward time you know there’s always somewhere open for some casino action and refreshment.
Once inside there’s an impressive array of options available for the discerning gambler – American roulette, blackjack, Texas Hold’em and Omaha as well as a range of slot machines and video poker (there’s some great one-armed bandits here). The Coloseum also offers a range of entertainment options most nights of the week, whether you want to boogie the night away on the dance-floor or watch one of the bands which regularly play here.
To start the evening, why not head to the Bacchus Bar or the Arena Restaurant for some great food and a drink before you head for the poker tables.
