Vijećnica, Sarajevo

4.4
Vijećnica serves as a symbol of the city and is the most representative building from the Austro-Hungarian period that bears witness to the city's historical dramas. It was built between 1892 and 1894 in a pseudo-Moorish style--a blend of Orient and Occident, as the city itself. The most notable feature of its interior is the six-angled hall topped with the glass dome. Notice the painted decorations in the main stairway and the stained-glass window ornamented with floral patterns under the dome. The hall burned down in 1992, and it was officially re-opened after restoration on May 9, 2014. It has housed the National and University Library since 1949.

  • Building of the library of Sarajevo fully restored since it was bombed and destroyed during the war of the Balcanes.Hermoso building on the banks of the river and in the heart of the city.

  • It is a beautiful town hall was rebuilt in 2014. Exterior and interior is beautiful. However, it seems that outraged architects, architects who design orientation and building orientation are different. Beautiful definitely, a must see.

  • This is a beautiful building with a sad past. It was heavily damaged during the war, but they have finally preformed a restoration.  more »
