Radićeva is located in the center of Sarajevo, running south to north, from Obala Kulina Bana to Maršala Tita and crossing Branilaca Sarajeva St. and Mis Irbina St. near BBI Center.
It was first laid out in around 1935 during the period of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and, up until WWII, it had only two buildings, one adjacent to today's Obala Kulina Bana and the other on the corner with Branilaca Sarajeva.
The latter was raised by the humanitarian, Adeline Paulina Irby, and donated to the Holy Tekla Circle of Serbian Sisters. It was meant to house an institute for girls’ education and was later home to the Mladen Stojanović Students’ Home, now the Sarajevo Canton Prosecutor’s Office.
The street is named in honor of Stjepan Radić (1871-1928), an influential Croatian politician and founder and leader of the Croatian Peasant Party.
Radić died from wounds inflicted upon him and a few other party members by the assassin, Puniša Račić, a member of the Radical party who carried out an attack on June 20, 1928 in the National Assembly in Belgrade.
