Sarajevo: Where Love Resides Latest news from BiH...
Once upon time fairy tale named Sarajevo started. Can you imagine - it has been going on for 555 years!
Isa Bey Ishakovic filed the first building in Sarajevo - a small, dilapidated musafirhana, which distributed free soup for the poor and travelers. It is from this point in time back in 1462, the official history of Sarajevo began. Constructing the first buildings in Sarajevo, intended for the poor, travelers and passers-by, Isa Bey sought to transmit a message, written above the entrance of each of them: "It is a rallying point for good (people remark)".
Guided by his idea of the "good people", we witness that Sarajevo has always belonged to all who come to it and dwell here in kindness and peace. Here Isa Bey's will respect all of Gazi Husrev-Bey to the first mayor of Sarajevo Mustaj bey Fadilpašić through Esad Kulovića, only that the three were elected mayor, to our Father of the Nation, Safvet beg Bašagić, the first president of the Bosnian Parliament.
In 555 years of its history Sarajevo has been built, destroyed and raised as a Phoenix from ashes - each following time more magnificent than the previous.
From its first breath until the last Sarajevo was, is and shall be home for anyone who drinks water from Bascarsija's fountain.
Happy Constitution Day dearest Sarajevo!
