Sebilj Brunnen (Fountain), Sarajevo

4.3
Historic Site · Tourist Spot
At Baščaršija square amid a Middle Eastern-style market, Sebilj Brunnen (Fountain) represents a pseudo-Ottoman wooden fountain that dates from 1754. Although the original one burned in 1852, the fountain was reconstructed and the current version dates back to 1891. Visit the spot to see where travelers used to refresh themselves: a government official would be appointed to stand there and fill pots with water, which he would then give free to anyone who was thirsty. Today, the fountain is one of the favorite photographic spots in Sarajevo.

  • Never been to Sarajevo (not like Estes Park Colorado or La Jolla San Diego) but wish to go there someday and see this. There is one in St. Louis here in the states, but that’s a replica, this one in Sarajevo is the actual and real thing. Sarajevo is truly a beautiful place.
