The old city hall: A good starting point

When coming to Sarajevo, people typically visit the old osman quarter (Baščaršija) first. Fair enough, because it might be the most beautiful part of the town and fascinates with its oriental atmosphere. A good starting point for this visit is the old city hall, built in 1892. You’ll find it close to the Miljacka river where Obala Kulina bana and Brodac streets cross.

After the house of Habsburg invaded Bosnia in 1878 the austro-hungarians wanted to regain some sympathies and built up this new city hall. It is an example for islamic architecture and the interior and especially the glass roof are really beautiful. In 1914 this was the place where archduke Franz Ferdinand started to ride through Sarajevo he should not survive.
