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.

  • It'a symbol of Sarajevo. It's at a central location but not so special. But it can be useful for getting warm in cold Bosnian nights . 
  • Its a flame and it burns. That is what flame does. :))) Nice touch as this is monument. But I cant get rid of a fact kids play around the open fire. It just calls for accident. 
  • Very important landmark in Sarajevo, a vital part of the city tour. A monument to mark the end of World War 2.
