Sarajevo the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, lies in a valley which is the meeting place of many roads, and has expanded following the flow of the Miljacka River. The city was established in 15th century and it had its own water supply system from the time, something a few European cities of the era could boast about. Sarajevo acquired its first tram in 1884, even before Vienna.
One of Sarajevo’s distinct features is a mixture of different styles, the Islamic - Oriental style from the Ottoman Empire era, where the Ottomans for centuries built Sarajevo into one of the most remarkable oriental cities in southern Europe. The neoclassical architecture from the period of the Austro - Hungarian Empire, also left a significant mark on the cultural, historical and architectural heritage of Sarajevo.
