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.

  • A corner between noisy traffic and pedestrian street on a façade is small memorial with inscriptions and eternal flame. You can easily miss it in a crowd. 
  • In Sarajevo, pretty much everything reminds you of World War II. You can always see the wall with traces of bullets and very clearly represented as people were shot here. There is also an eternal flame in memory of those tragic events.
