This review gets somewhat personal: my husband is Sarajlija and I am the daughter of a Herzegovac. Neither of us are religious at all but there is typically a day when we honor those who are no longer with us by visiting a couple of Bosniak graveyards and laying flowers and in my case burning candles for my father (and...

I would say, don't go out of your way to see this cathedral but if you are on a walking tour, it doesn't hurt to go in and see it.

The church is beautiful but the thing that effected me the most was the red roses and the damage from the war. The spot directly in front of the church marks the spot where many civilians died during the war while simply waiting in line for food. It is important to remember that the war was not that long ago... More

This is a lovey church and stands at the centre of a very busy main square. What is really poignant about this church is its bullet holes which are all over the outside walls. There are also two sarajevo roses one directly in front of the church, the other at its side. Its an important reminder of the horrors this... More

Located right downtown of Sarajevo, a great place to visit and still has a lot of bullet holes from the war eded in 1995/1996 along the side walls of the place. Anyways just check it out and enjoy your self after with some of the cafes around it.
