National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Museum is a multi-discipline scientific and cultural institution, home to the 14th-century Jewish Haggadah - a handwritten, illuminated manuscript of the text of the Passover Haggadah. 34 pages of bleached calfskin illustrate key scenes in the Bible, from the creation to the death of Moses.

Do & See

If you’re feeling up for the challenge, hike up the hill to the old medieval town and the ruins of Jacje Castle, where panoramic views of the city open before your very eyes. Walking west along the main alleyway of Bascarsija, you will notice the architecture change as you move into Ferhadija Street and into the Austro-Hungarian part of the city. Ferhadija Street is the main pedestrian shopping street in Sarajevo. The streets running parallel to Ferhadija Street are Obala Kulina Bana and Marsala Tita, where you will find many fine examples of Austro-Hungarian legacy.
