  • The concrete bridge on Topal Osman-Paše Street, known to Sarajevans as the bridge by the Elektroprivreda building, connects two Sarajevo neighborhoods – Grbavica and Socijalno.

    It was constructed in 1973 by the Traser design agency at a time when Sarajevo was undergoing rapid development in the decades following World War II.

    During the last war, the bridge on Topal Osman-Paše Street was on the front lines and was even mined, all of which left it badly damaged. The last full reconstruction was carried out in 2013, when a pedestrian section was added to complement the traffic lanes. New concrete railings were also installed.

    The entire street and its bridge are named after Topal Osman Pasha (1804-1874), an Ottoman Governor who contributed greatly to the development of Sarajevo in the second half of the 19th century.
