The Latin Bridge over the River Miljacka which dates back to around 1541.

Note the left side of the bridge in this picture, which is the northern side.  It was at this spot that Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated in 1914, which led to the beginning of World War I.







Many buildings in Sarajevo still show obvious signs from the Bosnian War which and the siege of the town which was surrounded by Serbian forces from April 5, 1992 to February 29, 1996.
