Glorious surroundings with stunning stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings and lovely wooden carvings on pews. A beautiful, moving experience to attend Sunday morning Mass. Centrally located so easy to visit if you are so inclined.

This Roman Catholic Cathedral is one of important buildings from Austro-Hungarian occupation in Bosnia. Style is typical for 19th century. It was nicely decorated during Christmas season, especially scene showing birth of Christ.

Designed by the famous architect of Czech origins Josip Vancas, who had "lost his heart in Sarajevo" and was obsessed with the beauty of this town and country. It is one of the finest examples of the neo-gothical style

It could really be called the centre of its town. A lot of people meet here and there is always a lot of activity going on. You will definitely come across it.
