The Eternal flame is a memorial to the military and civilian victims of the Second World War in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The memorial was dedicated on 6 April 1946, the first anniversary of the liberation of Sarajevo from the four-year-long occupation by Nazi Germany and the fascist Independent State of Croatia.The memorial is located in the center of Sarajevo at the corner the Marshal Tito street and the main Sarajevo pedestrian street, Ferhadija.In the very early morning of Sunday, 2 January 2011, the Vječna vatra was attempted to be extinguished by a gathering of revellers. However, the flame refused to be extinguished and instead grew in strength, quickly scattering the revellers.

  • I expected a giant flame. Something special. But it is only a small flame. You will surely walk pass it when walking in the city centre. 
  • to an old times... when we were same country, same spirit. nice that it is kept alive... and I hope that it will keep us connected. 
  • There is not much you visually, but it means a lot to the spiritual is a must-see. It's not difficult, for example, on the opposite side is an 8-minute walk from 7-ask ask. One stop to warm up and while visiting, and feel the spirit of the war. I suggest you see while in Bosnia.
