Shows how the city known as the Jerusalem of Europe played such a critical role in European history? also shares an insight into the tensions suppressed by Tito and the Yugoslavian government. The city is an incredible visit.

I found out more about the assassination of Franz Ferdinand from a free tour provider than from this museum. Very small, only a handful of photos and items. Some background information about the Black Hand would have been nice.

The museum is rather small, but there“s a lot of history to it. There“s for instance wax figures of Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophia as well as other small souvenirs and essentials from the time.

It takes about 15-20 minutes to go through everything and it“s not that pricy either (3KM per person). It“s definitely worth taking the trip as it“s also located at Baščaršija (old town).

To anyone interested in military history and World War I, I insist that they visit this spot. It is where Serbian assassin Princep assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sofia, on June 28, 1914, which started World War I. It is marked with a plaque, photos, and a video clip of photos. Sadly, where imprints of where Princep stood is now a metal slab covering a ceptic tank. Still, do not miss out on this spot if you are in the area.

Next year will be the centenary of the outbreak of the first world war, in which millions and millions of people - British, French, Russian, Serb, Italian, American, German, Australian, Indian... - died. Doubtless Sarajevo will have many visitors from all over the world for the occasion, and I expect something will be done about this museum.



In the meantime, it's just a dreary collection of a few disparate objects kept in a room or two.

I was astonished at the Archduke's sky-blue tunic.



There's a helpful map showing the movements of the Imperial car on the fatal day, and where Gavril Princip waited.
