Explore the National Library which was initially Sarajevo’s City Hall dating back to 1896 and is found in the old Turkish quarter. It was converted into a library in 1949 and has a beautiful Moorish face. It once housed two million books chronicling the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empires, but many of these were destroyed in 1992 during the conflicts in the region. Learn more about the history of the area at the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, founded in 1888.
