Sarajevo, the European Jerusalem

Sarajevo is the capital and largest urban center of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Though truly a historic city, sporting beautiful architecture from both Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman periods, it lost much of its shine after undergoing the longest siege in modern military history in the nineties.
Reconstruction of Sarajevo has been gradual, and there's still a lot to be done. Still, taking into consideration the extent of damage caused to the city, its progress has been remarkable. This thread is dedicated to Sarajevo's revival.

Awesome. Definitely what I like to call a "Postcard City." That second picture is postcard perfect.

the islamic architecture in Sarajevo is amazing. Some parts of the city look more authentically Ottoman than even Turkish cities!

Beautiful city and lovely women!

A lot of the "massage therapists" in NY, London (and elsewhere I'm sure) are from Eastern Europe.
