  • Building is amazing , historical place ... but it will be better if shops are not full with fake Chinese or Turkish stuff such as bags and souvenirs . I am happy to see a few shops with autentical Bosnians souvenurs.
  • Gazi Husrev Bey’s Bezistan (covered bazaar), also called Old Bezistan and Great Bezistan, is part of Gazi Husrev Bey’s vakuf (endowment). It is presumed that the structure was built around 1540. During the Ottoman period, the shops inside traded textiles and the outdoor shops, which ran along the eastern side of the building on Gazi Husrev Bey Street, belonged to the metalworkers’ čaršija and gold and silver jewelry was produced and sold here. There are four entrances to the bazaar: two come from Gazi Husrev Bey’s Street, one is on Ferhadija and another on Branilaca Sarajeva. Another structure, Tašlihan (Stone Inn), was built at the same time as Bezistan. Built along the western wall, the inn made the bazaar a unique complex, which was at the center of trade in Sarajevo during the Ottoman period. After being badly damaged during a fire in 1879, a large portion of Tašlihan was knocked down. The remains of the inn now comprise part of Hotel Europe’s summer garden.
  • It is really lovely place in the heart od Old Town. Gives out oriental vibes.
  • Good price and bought some awesome cheap sunglasses.
  • The old bazaar made by Gazi Husrev-Beg during the Ottoman rule. Like the rest of the old town, it follows Ottoman architecture. It's the first place to start looking for small souvenirs. On the outside, it hosts numerous shops that sell jewelry.
