Vjecna Vatra

This building is right off of Bascarsija. It's called Vjecna Vatra (Eternal Flame) because there is a small ring of fire in front of the building that burns everyday all day. It's a really beautiful site at night. The picture is just of the building though, not of the fire.

Eternal fire - eternal flame

Eternal flame: This monument on the main street is dedicated to the liberators of Sarajevo in the second world war. Every year on April 6 an anniversary and memorial of the liberation day is held, and city government and world war two veterans leave flowers in remembrance
as thanks to Serbian and partisan troups for liberation of Sarajevo in the second world war, Isn't that ironic considering what happened just 10 years ago??

It represents an ANTI WAR monument.
