Sarajevo Olympic Bobsleigh and Luge Track - The Bobsleigh and Luge Track was proposed in 1977 when the city of Sarajevo was awarded the 1984 Winter Olympics. The track was designed and approved in 1981 and construction was completed in 1982 at a cost of 563,209,000 Yugoslav Dinar. The Winter Olympics of 1984 had 30,000 bobsleigh spectators and 20,000 luge spectators. After these Olympics the track was used for world cup competitors until the start of the Yugoslav wars in 1991. The Siege of Sarajevo in 1992 resulted in damage to the track, which occurred during the Bosnian War. The track was used as an artillery position by Bosnian Serb forces.
