I love this building. The architecture is phenomenal. Being inside is something special. I did not take a tour but rather just stopped in on my own to check it out.

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.

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.
