The irrestible charm of Kovači Street

The irrestible charm of Kovači Street

  1. Sarajevans did something beautiful. They’ve taken huge shell casings, the same ones from the ammunition used against them during the war, and they’ve carved them with pictures of how Sarajevo used to look, polished them and now they sell them. I bought a lot of them. This is the most beautiful example of how we shall overcome what has happened to us.

  2. Sarajevo had the best organized winter games in the history of the Olympics.... Farewell, dear Sarajevo.

    Juan Antonio Samaranch, President of the International Olympic Committee
