National Geographic Young Explorers Grantees Cara Eckholm and Amanda Rivkin have been on the ground in Sarajevo this month. They’re pursing the story of the new urban landscape in Sarajevo, delving into the triumphs and tensions of a city that not long ago was ravaged by war. Through interviews with Sarajevo’s citizens Cara and Amanda are investigating battles over public monuments and museums, the complications of the foreign investments funding the rebuilding, and other stories from every corner of the historic city.
Their updates from the field include photos of the people they are interviewing, fascinating places in the city, and glimpses of their adventures along the way. Get a preview of their reporting below and follow @CaraEckholm on Twitter as the pair continues to explore Sarajevo.
