Štrosmajerova Street made a National Monument

The Committee for the Preservation of National Monuments of BiH has made all of Štrosmajerova Street (in the center of Sarajevo) a National Monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.


Reconstruction projects along the entire length of this walking street will be taking place throughout the year. The facades of the buildings are currently being redone, and the next step is to repair the paved area of the walking zone.

Considered one of the most beautiful streets in town, at the end of the 19th century, it was laid out by the Austro-Hungarian administration with the idea of making this part of Sarajevo the urban “heart” of the city. The street runs south-north, from Zelenih Beretki Street to where Ferhadija and Trg Fra Grge Martića meet in front of the Cathedral of Jesus’ Sacred Heart.

Other sights recently made National Monuments of BiH include: the Archeological Area–Stećci located along Ričina Potok (stream) in Posušje, the entire Old Mosque complex with its courtyard (in Goduša, in Visoko); and the Central Monument-Ossuary in Lukavac, which is a national monument dedicated to those killed during the National War of Liberation.
