  • Obala Maka Dizdara runs along the left bank of the Miljacka, from Skenderija and Eiffel Bridge (west) to Čobanija St. and Čobanija Bridge (east).

    It was first laid out in 1910 as Filipovićeva Obala, after Josip Filipović, an Austrian baron and general of the army that occupied BiH and Sarajevo in 1878, setting the stage for 40 years of Austro-Hungarian rule.

    The name was changed to Zvonimirova Obala, after the Croatian king who was killed by his followers because his policies were tied to Rome.

    As of June 8, 1948, it was named after Otokar Ćiro Keršovani, a Zagreb publicist, Marxist and political activist shot by the Ustashas in 1941.

    On May 19, 1994, it was named after Mehmedalija Mak Dizdar, one of BiH's most important poets.

    One of Sarajevo's prettiest walking streets, it is lined with many important institutions like: the monumental Academy of Fine Arts building, and the famous Festina Lente Bridge, the Ministry of Culture and Sport for the Federation of BiH, the Greek, Serbian and Iranian embassies, and a few hospitality facilities.
