Cathedral in the centre of Sarajevo

It is a landmark in Sarajevo, being in the centre on a busy street and having a sculpture of the Pope John Paul outside. We went inside and it was a lovely building.

Like 7% of the inhabitants of Sarajevo are Roman Catholics. Nevertheless, a rather large and beautiful church, visited by Pope John Paul II. Sarajevo is truly the Jeruzalem of Europe.

Good to know that there are just as many Muslims as well as Christains/ Catholics in Sarajevo and the presence of this cathedral is a sign of this. Do drop by this cathedral if you have the chance to as it was one of the places where Pope John Paul II spent and contributed his time..

I am not sure what to say about a church. It is just a church. You should probably take a look if you are not a Roman Catholic, or you should go inside and spend some time in a silent prayer. It's a typical church, big, nice, calm.

A very nice church! It's interesting to see christian churches in minority (in relation to muslim mosques). You can't miss it as it located right beside the main road. I suggest you visit it (even though it is nothing special on the inside). There is also no entrance fee.

This review gets somewhat personal: my husband is Sarajlija and I am the daughter of a Herzegovac. Neither of us are religious at all but there is typically a day when we honor those who are no longer with us by visiting a couple of Bosniak graveyards and laying flowers and in my case burning candles for my father (and...
