This small Orthodox church, apparently the oldest in the city and built in the early Ottoman period, is tucked away on the north side of Mula Mustafa Bašeskije street, is a simple stone building on the outside but very ornate on the inside. I saw...More

If you're a fan of old churches you'll love this one. It's quite small compared to other churches in Sarajevo, and very old. Upon entering, one feels peacefulness and serenity. The iconostasis is wonderful, hand-made out of wood, and quite old. The garden is beautiful....More

If you've never seen an Orthodox church before, and if you're desperate to do so, then pay the admission price of 10 KM and go on in. But really, there's not much here. The exhibits are only labeled in Slavonic/Serbian, so you don't know what...More

This medieval church gives a very intimate feeling. In sheer contrast with some of the pompous and bombastic buildings of modern times. A precious gem but a bit off the beaten path.
