  • We saw it on the other side of the river, walking around the park at Medjan, on the Obala Kulina Bana along which there are several interesting buildings you can appreciate. It is noted for the color but in reality it is a museum which therefore must be appreciated with a visit rather than stopping at the architectural part which is always something interesting.

  • Two floors showing the differences between Austria-Hungary decor and classic Ottoman ear stylings. There are similarities, tall, tile-clad heater stoves in each room, enjoying coffee and lounging/socializing being the focus of most rooms. The ornate woods are delightful, and there is even a piano to show the modern influence.
  • One of Sarajevo"s less known Landmarks, a unique building whose visit is like a small time travel. Certainly worth visiting.
