  • In the heart of Baščaršija, there are two streets which run parallel to one another and form Ćurčiluk.

    The greater part of Ćurčiluk Veliki (in the north) runs along one side of the complex around Gazi Husrev Bey's Mosque and Kolobara Han, stretching between Gazi Husrev Bey's St. in the west and Abadžiluk St. in the east.

    Ćurčiluk Mali is located to the south of Ćurčiluk Veliki and runs perpendicular to Gazi Husrev Bey St. in the west and Bazardžani St. in the east.

    Ćurčiluk Mali has been a part of Sarajevo’s Čaršija since the 16th century and takes its name from the ćurčije (furriers) who had workshops and stores where they would produce and sell items made from fur.

    Along with another bazaar, which would later be called Ćurčiluk Veliki, it formed the longest market street in old Sarajevo. By the second half of the 18th century there were over 350 furriers working here.
