Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

ミリッカ川沿いにある旧国立図書館は外見がイスラム様式の美しい建物です。オーストリア・ハンガリー帝国時代に市庁舎として建設され、第二次大戦後は国立図書館として使用されていましたがボスニア紛争で炎上したとのこと。現在はきれいに修復されていますが、この国の複雑な歴史を感じました。Myrick River along the old national library is a beautiful Moorish building appearance. It was Austria Hungary Empire period was built as the City Hall, after the second world war was used as a national library went up in flames in the Bosnian conflict. Today has been restored nicely, but I felt this nation's complex history.show original
