Built in 1982 on mountain Trebevic slopes, with a cost of more than 8.000.000$, bobsleigh in Sarajevo was one of the best in whole world at that time. The main reason for the construction were XIV Winter Olympic Games, held in 1984 in Sarajevo.
Being 1300m long with 13 turns, 129.5m vertical drop, and 10% average grade, this bobsleigh and luge track was steepest and fastest of its time. After Olympic Games ended, Sarajevo hosted several more events organized by ILF ( International Luge federation ) and IBSF (International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation).
