This han - inn, dating back from 1551, is the best preserved one in Sarajevo. During its history, it has sufered several fires and has been submitted to several repairs. Nowadays, it is the only han located at Bascarsija and houses a charming restaurant.
The beautiful cobbled courtyard is surrounded by old stables, store houses and lodging rooms upstairs, resting on large wooden pillars.
It is said that, during the Golden Age of Sarajevo (which lasted up until the raid by Eugene of Savoy and the Austrians in the 1690s), there were almost 50 hans, which are a type of inn constructed by the government for travelers east and west, especially merchants. Obviously, these people came to do business in the bezistani, the marketplaces. Most of these structures did not survive, but one of them, Moriæa han, still stands at the corner of the Bascarsija district. Today it is used more as a commercial centre, but its outward appearance and Ottoman beauty are preserved. This particular han has a special importance, as it was the sight of the initial anti-Austrian protests when the occupying forces first arrived in 1878.

Come for the history, stay for the coffee. This cafe was once a tavern when Sarajevo was a stopover on the ancient crossroads between East and West. Although wickerwork chairs for coffee drinkers have replaced benches for weary travellers and a carpet shop with waist-high stacks of rugs fill former stables, a historic ambience still permeates the place
