Ferhadija Mosque

The Ferhadija mosque was built in the 16th century with a "kuttab" (school), a fountain and an "imaret" (public kitchen). These side buildings were unfortunately destroyed by successive fires (1697 and 1879), and the mosque was damaged during the Bosnian War (1992-1995).

Cathedral of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Cathedral of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a Roman Catholic cathedral, built in 1889. The architect of the cathedral was none other than Josip Vancaš (1859-1932), who combined elements of Romanesque and Gothic styles in this project. The cathedral was built on the site of a former Janissary camp where the Austro-Hungarian administration intended to build a town market.
