The Post Office, certainly one of the most beautiful I've seen, based on the Viennese Post office and it was from this office that the telegram was sent that informed the world Franz Ferdinand has just been assassinated.

A very fine piece of historicist architecture, that would not be ashamed to find itself in Vienna. Interesting to see is the side portal where, how I was told, use to come railway carriages with post using the tram tracks

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.

The building is built during the Austrian-Hungarian period. The hall of the post office is very nice. Most off it still in art-deco style. E.g. the lamps and ticket booths. Free to go in and look around. Interesting.

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.

The central post office is located in a grand building. The high doors lead to a foyer which opens into a square where you find the postal services. There is a large three-sided area of 'cages' offering various service options, as well as the assorted...More

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.
