4.3
#4 of 19 in Historic Sites in Sarajevo
The neo-Gothic and Romanesque-styled Katedrala Srca Isusova serves as the largest cathedral in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and has become a symbol of Sarajevo. Completed in 1889, the 43.2 m (141.7 ft) tall church resembles Notre Dame, with elements of typical Bosnian ornamentation. Tour the interior to see stained-glass windows that elaborately depict Biblical motifs, and see numerous frescoes created by world-famous Italian-German painter Alexander Maximilian Seitz. Observe geometrical shapes on the floors and walls, and view detailed artistic ornamentation on the woodwork. You'll also see the archbishop's tomb at the site.

  • Very nice place. Old and historical catedral. Architecture from outside is very nice with time mars all over the place. The place looks nice inside. The entrance is free. Location is very good and ner building are beautiful. A MUST when visiting Sarajevo.
  • Built in 1889 in the Neo-Gothic style as the seat of the Archdiocese of Vrhbosna. It was Archbishop Josip Štadler who oversaw construction and his tomb is located here, as is a monument in honor of Pope John Paul II.
  • Spare a few minutes to see inside this church that was destroyed many times by muslims. There is an €1 donation in order to restore it.
  • Looks nice inside but nothing special. Outside is beautiful and the location in town is nice for a picture because you have a good view on the houses in the hills around Sarajevo.
  • Nice and well renovated church which was built in 1887.
