Eternal Flame, Sarajevo

(2.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Eternal flame has a very important meaning, but the landmark itself is nothing special (very small flame). You can see it easily, it is located at the start of Ferhadija street.  more »

  • 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.  more »
