Kino Bosna

Kino Bosna (Bosnia Cinema), formerly known as Prvi Maj Cinema, is located at Alipašina 19 and enjoys a “cult following” in Sarajevo. Built in 1928, it is one of the city’s oldest cinemas.


A stage was set up in the main hall so that, in addition to showing films, other events (plays, concerts, dance nights...), were always easily held there. It got its current name, Bosnia Cinema, right after the last war came to an end.

Generations of young artists and enthusiasts have passed through this fantastic place and they continue to do so. Their work has made a lasting contribution to the development of Sarajevo's cultural scene.

Currently, the most active groups are Kolektiv Kreativa and Open Source, and the doors of Kino Bosna are open to everyone who would like to express their creativity.

Kino Bosna is also a popular café-bar, which boasts very low prices for drinks and the opening hours are Monday to Saturday, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

The "craziest" day is Monday, with its Sevdah Soiree, when musicians play their guitars, accordions and drums, walk among the tables in the packed hall and "honor" the guests with well known sevdalinkas and old city songs.
