National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina - former City Hall

The history

The National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina (NUBBiH) is the national library of Bosnia and Herzegovina, located in the city of Sarajevo.
It was designed in 1891 by the Czech architect Karel Pařík, but criticisms by the minister, Baron Benjamin Kallay, caused him to stop working on the project an the design has been finished by Alexander Wittek in 1892.
It was initially the largest and most representative building of the Austro-Hungarian period in Sarajevo and served as the city hall
The design was subsequently changed and supplemented in the new Moorish style leaning especially to the architecture of Mameluk in Cairo. It officially became the town hall in 1895.


picture early 20th century

Firstly, the City Hall represented the headquarters of the city government and administration of Sarajevo. After World War II until 1949, the City Hall served as the city government, building of District Court of Sarajevo, and headquarter of Bosnian and Herzegovinian assembly. After that, the City Hall becomes the National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina.


in the 60ies

As the National Library it was exposed to large shelling and was heavily damaged in the 1992-95 aggression. On 25th and 26th of August in 1992, the City Hall was burned down, and in this fire a lot of valuable documents was lost, such as: Catalog of National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina, around 80% of the books and documents that were the evidence of history of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The inside of the City Hall was almost totally destroyed in the fire which was caused by bombing.

Certainly one of the most iconic buildings of Sarajevo. It is great to see it restored again.

This will be a gem for locals and tourists alike indeed.
