This is the most beautiful location in Sarajevo that every tourist must visit
With the Austro – Hungarian coming on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina many changes happened. The city that had the spirit of the Ottoman culture started coopting the spirit of the west and became the place where east and west meet. Political, strategic and economic aims of the Austro – Hungarians required literacy on the European level and bigger number of the educated. Bosnia and Herzegovina, as one of the still uninvestigated countries on the Balkans, attracted many curious scientists, especially those from the Austro – Hungarian Empire. That contributed to the adoption of more concrete measures in the opening of the museum, which meant the establishment of Museum society after which the National government founded the National museum for Bosnia and Herzegovina on 1st February 1888. For the manager of the Museum was named government’s advisor Kosta Hörman.
Located in the heart of Sarajevo, built in the neo – renaissance style by the architect Karl Paržika, this museum is the only one in the entire region of Eastern Europe which is built only in that purpose.
The National museum in Sarajevo has collected a great number of cultural and national heritage during its 100-year existence.
Exhibits are sorted by departments: archeological, ethnological and department of natural sciences, in several different collections; the most important exhibit in the museum is famous Hagada from Sarajevo, traditional Jewish book which Sephards brought from Spain after they had been expelled.
National museum has breathtaking botanical garden in its central part. It presents the only monument of this kind in Sarajevo. It was founded in 1913 and its founder was Karlo Maly, prominent botanist. Botanical garden owns very rich herbarium and is home for many rare, endemic and exotic kinds of flora.

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.
