  • Gazi Husrev Bey’s Street, with its many goldsmith and jewelry shops, is one of the prettiest streets in Baščaršija.

    At its upper (northern) end is Mula Mustafa Bašeskija St. and at its lower (southern) end it runs into Zelenih Beretki Street. About midway, at the popular “Sweet Corner”, it intersects Sarači and Ferhadija. The longest extent runs along the western wall of Gazi Husrev Bey’s Bezistan.

    This street was laid out in the first half of the 16th century as part of Gazi Husrev Bey mahala (neighborhood). In 1931 it was named after Gazi Husrev Bey – the most prominent governor of Bosnia and Sarajevo’s greatest benefactor.

    Before being turned into one street, it was made up of two different sections: Predimare (at the imaret), which referred to Gazi Husrev Bey’s imaret (free public kitchen) and Veliki Kujundžiluk, which took its name from the goldsmiths who had shops here.

    The street is still unofficially referred to as Zlatarska Street.
