Bulevar Meše Selimovića 97
Type: Theater, Concert Venue
Dom Mladih was originally intended as a cultural-artistic center for youth and is now a multimedia venue that regularly hosts different events.
This facility takes up 7,000 m2 and was built as part of Skenderija, a cultural and sports center, which first opened on November 29, 1969.
Before the last war, Dom Mladih served as the center of youth culture in Sarajevo. Various clubs related to literature, music, drama, film, art… used to have gatherings here that were attended by tons of young Sarajevans. Such events gave them an opportunity to try out different art forms and to have a good time.
Cultural and art events were regularly held in Dom
During the last war, in May 1992, Dom Mladih was hit by a grenade and set aflame, which caused significant damage. Nevertheless, festivals, concerts, exhibits, etc. were still held in the burned out interior.
A complete renovation was carried out in the early 2000’s and Dom Mladih re-opened in February 2007.
