Cathedral of Jesus' Heart, Sarajevo
(4.2/5 based on 190 reviews on the web)
The neo-Gothic and Romanesque-styled Cathedral of Jesus' Heart serves as the largest cathedral in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and has become a symbol of Sarajevo. Completed in 1889, the 43.2 m (141.7 ft) tall church resembles Notre Dame, with elements of typical Bosnian ornamentation. Tour the interior to see stained-glass windows that elaborately depict Biblical motifs, and see numerous frescoes created by world-famous Italian-German painter Alexander Maximilian Seitz. Observe geometrical shapes on the floors and walls, and view detailed artistic ornamentation on the woodwork. You'll also see the archbishop's tomb at the site. Our Sarajevo family vacation planner makes visiting Cathedral of Jesus' Heart and other Sarajevo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Historical monument that the inhabitants of the city and the whole nation preserves with care and pride. Undisputed symbol of the beauty of a country that offers so much from every angle. Retains some signs due to events in the past, evidence of numerous rioters ensuing clashes that this monument has lived and which has resisted due to some of his people. Although in his little not captures the attention of the passer-by, watching her more closely manifests its beauty; If the visitor had to be an effort to dedicate the time it deserves to admire her in the singularity, makes the whole environment downtown a characteristically unique framework.

  • We found ourselves in a gathering of all the 4 religions in Sarajevo, and we heard a wonderful choir. The outside is impressive; the inner one a little less. In the evening, when we went we, there is lighting that makes it attractive.
