Doors Open Days at Saburina House

Stari Grad Municipality in Sarajevo will be organizing Doors Open Days at Saburina House from August 13 to 17.


Interested citizens may use this opportunity to become acquainted with the history of this national monument, which shows how people lived in those days, and how it was founded.

Saburina House is a rare example of preserved Ottoman residential architecture in Sarajevo. The original interior has been retained, the house is decorated with traditional hand-made furniture, and replicas of traditional folk costumes (the originals of which are kept at Brusa Bezistan) worn by beys and their wives are on display, as are other items dating from the Ottoman period.

Saburina House was built in the 18th century as a residence for the Sabur family, an old Sarajevo family that worked in coppersmithing and traded copper items. The home was restored in 2014.

Saburina House is located at Saburina 6, in Kovači and, in the coming period, visiting hours will be from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
