Actors dressed as historical figures on streets of Sarajevo

If you always wanted to see how some of the most important historical figures of the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empire in Bosnia and Herzegovina looked like, don’t miss a walk to the Susan Sontag Square, Eiffel Bridge, Great Park and Academy of Fine Arts, on October 15th and 16th, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.


On this occasion, young Bosnian actors and actresses, dressed up as Franz Ferdinand, Sophie Chotek, Gavrilo Princip, Isa - bey Ishakovic and Gazi Husrev-bey will walk through the streets of Sarajevo, as a part of the project #SarajevoReborn - created to strengthen and promote cultural tourism in the city of Sarajevo.

During their walk and performance around pedestrian streets and cultural and historic sites in Sarajevo, they will be introducing our impressive history to tourists and Sarajevans alike.

The distinctiveness of this tourist offer and promotion is that it gives tourists and citizens a unique opportunity to interact with academic actors and enjoy their performances, while giving them information about the past and present of the destination in a different and theatrical way.

Aside from actors, young Bosnian artists who made the masks and costumes, as well as directed the performances, give a very special touch to the whole project.

The project #SarajevoReborn will also include special movie screenings in the City Hall, where tourists and citizens will have an opportunity to watch films that thematize Sarajevo and its complex history, free of charge. This part of the project starts with 8 screenings of the most interesting short films from the omnibus ‘’Bridges of Sarajevo’’, which thematizes Sarajevo and Europe before, during and after the World War I. The omnibus film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
