  • Zelenih Beretki Street starts at the Museum of Sarajevo 1878-1918 and then runs into Branilaca Sarajeva St. at Dom Armije.

    This street dates back all the way to the 15th century – part of it used to be called Kuluk-Česma, which referred to the kuluk-česma (fountain) that was where Central Hotel is today, and the other half was known as Sabljarska Čaršija, then later Kulukčije St. (after the sword makers).

    In the second half of the 19th century it took the name Galata Džadesi, or Galata, and then Tašlihanska, after Gazi Husrev Bey’s Tašlihan (stone inn), which was located between Hotel Europe and Gazi Husrev Bey’s Bezistan.

    During the Austro-Hungarian period it was renamed Franje Josipa St. and then it was given the name Kralja Petra St. during the time of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. From 1941 to 1945 it was known as Ulica br. 1 (Street No. 1).

    At the end of the Second World War it was given the name Jugoslovenske Narodne Armije (JNA) St. The current name, Zelenih Beretki, has been in use since 1993, after the volunteer army unit that was formed in 1991 to defend Sarajevo and BiH.
