While we walked to Ferhadija Pedestrian Street from Courtyard by Marriott, we walked past Central Post Office. Nice Architecture. In fact, Sarajevo has many beautiful architectures. City hall is another beauty.

Stunning architecture and restoration work. Proceed to gate 17 or 18 to purchase postcards for 1 KM each. Stamps to Canada were 1,50 KM each.

this building was completely destroyed during the bosnian war with craots, with the precision of Croatian architect Josip Vancaš the building was rebuilt exactly as it was before the destruction. Amazing art work showing the precision and minute work of the architect !!!!

one of the nicest austro-hungarian buildings in town and you can visit for free (different from the rebuilt town hall). Look at the ceiling and at the still conserved wooden barriers dividing the different sections from the public.

I popped in and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to get post card stamps. There is a little store that sells all sorts of post cards and accessories. Worth a quick visit.

Stopped in for postcard stamps and in a manner of seconds had successfully mailed a pile of postcards despite the language barrier with the clerk.
