Contents / A Balkan Ballad... Sarajevo

Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, is a multicultural European city where Bosnians, Serbs and Croatians co-exist.

Nestled among the mountains, verdant Sarajevo is a city that with its rainbow of flowers adorns not only itself but the world as well. Even surrounded by snow one cannot help yielding to the spell of the trees. The color white becomes this city, as does green in its various shades-although the bullet holes one discovers on careful examination of the building walls lend Sarajevo a strange kind of melancholy...
Sarajevo is a Muslim city of Eastern Europe which in the 15th century became a city as we understand the term today, and whose growth and development came in the 17th century. If you strain your historical memory you may recall that for a considerable length of time this little city was under Ottoman rule, that for a brief period it was controlled by the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and that it was the place where World War I began.
