St. Joseph’s Church was built in Pale in 1911 so as to meet the needs of lumberjacks who were working in the forests around Sarajevo. It later became a seat of religious life for Catholics who were living around Romanija.

What makes this small church so special is that it is built in the Tyrolean-Alpine style and is the only church in the Archdiocese of Vrhbosna made entirely of wood.
St. Joseph’s became a parish church when the actual parish was founded in Pale in 1928. In 2004, it was made a National Monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The church offers mass on Sundays and holidays and organizes a special feast day (May 1) in honor of St. Joseph the Worker.
