The picturesque location of Zlatište, located less than 10 minutes away from Sarajevo’s city center, recently became the home of a fascinating amusement park built in line with the most rigorous European standards. This park, built to appeal both to children and adults, features a one-of-a-kind adrenaline alpine coaster – the main attraction of the park. At present, Sunnyland Park consists of three facilities: a promenade and lake with a fountain, and natural climbing wall.
