Bridges do not leave indifferent, some cause admiration and awe while others enchant. The Roman bridge in the truth is enchanting and provoked by quarreling. In addition to the Latin Quarter, the Kozije ćuprija and Šeher-Ćehajine ćuprije, the Roman Bridge is one of the four preserved stone bridges in the Sarajevo area. The Natural-architectural ensemble of Bridge in Plandier (Roman Bridge, Bridge over River Bosna in Plandier) was declared a national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2005.

The peak of Bosnia is certainly the best location for escape from the city noise and noise, and is also one of the most famous features of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located in Ilidža, near the center of Sarajevo and we can freely say that it is one of the most famous scenes of natural beauty in our region. As the name itself says, the river Bosna is one of the most important waterways for the micro-region through which it flows, but also for the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Gyrocopter flight is so much more than watching landmarks, it’s a deep secret and permanent change of lifeview for anyone who flies. It is a spiritual pleasure that represents a perfect match of adrenaline and a glorios view. Definitely a lifetime experience that Daedalus and Icarus tried to bring to life all those years ago, the idea of flying is in a mind of humanity since our very own beginning.
Did you ever imagine that you could fly, at least once, for just a second when you were a child?
Those same ideas crossed even the biggest minds like Leonardo Da Vinci, who made the first design of the aircraft that we today call the helicopter.

Bosniak Institute – Foundation of Adil – bey Zulfikarpašić is the unique cultural and scientific institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina which possess museum, library, archive, gallery and cultural center which attracted a lot of attention in public from the very opening.
Long time ago Armstrong said that a little group of decisive souls supported with strong wind in their mission can change the history. Sometimes it is needed faith instead of group of souls! Thus in 2001, the Bosniak Institute was opened as the result of the culmination of devotion and vision that couple Zulfikarpašić, Adil – bey and his wife Tatjana had had for many decades.
Lifelong commitment to collecting materials about Bosnia and Herzegovina, the countries of the former Yugoslavia and the Balkans with the active publicistic and political work contributed to the achievement of such results.

When we talk about the meeting with Bosnian tradition through the artifacts of traditional Bosnian furniture and clothes, objects, cultural events, collections of artistic works of Bosnian – Herzegovinian artists, and research of modern and Ottoman architecture, the Bosniak Institute is unavoidable place in the city of Sarajevo.
Not many of us has a chance to change history, but all of us can work on that to change the part of a particular event, but in the whole, those events will be written as the history of one generation. The Bosniak Institute went this way and through various programs and activities it offered unique cultural events. According to that, it offers a unique walk through cultural history of our country, inheritance, tradition and culture.
Except two objects which create complex of the Institute, better said, the Ottoman from the 16th century and the second, modern from the 21st century, the Bosniak Institute offers a wide spectrum of the museum’s artifacts which are the witnesses of the rich history, tradition and culture. The history is cruel master. It has no the present, just the past which goes towards the future. Because of that, do not doubt that you cannot change it, you have already did it.

Weapons exhibition that calls to preserve the cultural heritage and power of interpretation of the history trough material elements(video+360 Photographs)
Within the exhibition in the Bosnian Institute – Adil Zurfikarpasic foundation there are few example of weapons and firearms from the period of XV til XX century. The weapons often symbolise the time from when it dates, so is with these examples. They show power, progress and the creative spirit of the time that it dates from.
Also, one of the characteristics of the weapons is showing and maintaining the status of the man in society as a symbol of the protector of the family and house. Actually these weapons characterise Bosnia and Herzegovina from that period and from which we can see the progress and the competence for the war. There are few examples of weapons that were used in our country -Jatagan- or -Handzar- which is a type of long knife that was usually carried by men in Bosnia and Herzgovina. -Sablja- was a common equipment between weapons that came in our country rough the Ottoman Empire, and very quickly the small shotgun called -Kabura-. There were few more firearms that gained their names by the place where they were produces. The biggest firearms that men were carrying were this long shotguns, so called -Sisane-. Actually the weapons were produced in many places in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and with those were opened stores that were selling weapons.
The weapon is a characteristical part of the material and non material heritage. The men were using it as a display of the power and status so they were giving big attention to the production of the weapon. Beside that it was very important to have weapons that are richly decorated so that process was made with different caligpaphical methods and sometimes they were embellished with stones and mother of pearl. It was interesting that the men were not showing on big events without expensive weapons and the same was not intended for fights. If you look at this weapons you can clearly see the status of Bosnia and Herzegovina in this period. Its very important the existence of an exhibition like this, that calls for the preservation of the cultural heritage and the power of interpretation of the history trough material evidence. With that it gives to all of us space to conclude something abut the weapons from the period from XV-XX century.
If you wish to meet a man, look over his threshold. Probably we all heard of this expression even tho we never asked ourself about the meaning. Very often the things we present in front of our homes is not a mirror of what is really happening. The same is with people, the outside look, the smile, the joy. All that does not reflect the inside of the soul. Even thought, there is always a nice smelling flowers inside the weeds. Wondering inside the box of memories, old stories and cartoons from The Bosnia and Herzegovina history and culture we feel the smell of the flowers in the old Bosnian room.
The Bosnian room consists of the shirt sofas that are usually put on the edges of the room, and the bedside that are under the windows, so the one who is sitting on the sofa can look over the window and see his yard. The curtains on the the window are always homemade. Very ofter they are brought in the home as inheritance of the bride. Those curtains are the most beautiful details thats stands out in the room. In the middle of the room there is usually a wooden coffee table, and somewhere in the corner there is a metal table usually used to serve the food.
On the other side there is a wooden cabinet where you usually would keep the sheets and blankets. This room would transform itself very quickly from a dining room to a bedroom. The plates to serve the food in the Bosnian room would usually be from coper, aluminium or wood. The unique details are for sure the woodcraft parts of the furniture, the craftwork that even today represent a form of art that is on the UNESCO lis of cultural heritage.
The Bosnian room is a very important segment of the history, as well as the present of our people, our existing and being. All that it contains has an extraordinary meaning fo the architectonical puzzle of our County. Before it was used for rest, enjoying the day from morning till night. Its is really a pleasure to drink the Bosnian coffee, too eat our traditional sweets and talk till the dawn knocks on the windows. For real the Bosnian room brings with itself out of ordinary stories in an ordinary place. Unfortunately, beside the museum examples and the exhibit in the Bosnian Institute they are really rare the places where you can have that kind of experience, and the opportunity to enjoy the Bosnian room. If you go lil bit deeper in thinking of the Bosnian room and remember out sofas, homemade curtains, coper plates and all those symbols, do you remember something. When I close my eyes and think of the Bosnian room i remember Bascarsija. For me Bascarsija is a Bosnian room in four walls, and for you? If you are not sure and you cant connect with your thoughts, the best thing is to go visit the Bosnian room in the Bosnian Institute. Experience it as it was before, full of pleasure so you can walk with Bascarsija in four walls.
