The eternal flame

At the west-end of the Ferhadija a gas fire is burning. It reminds of the liberation of Sarajevo by the troops of Yugoslavia in World War II. It was ignited in 1946 and burned continous until 1992. During the siege natural gas was a scarce good and the termination of the fire was seen as a bad signal.

Today the fire is burning again and the memorial serves to commemorate all antifascists independent from their religion or nationality. At the memorial site the traces of war times are still visible.
