This is the most beautiful church we saw in Sarajevo. The fee is 2 BAM and it is well worth it. Photos were not allowed but we saw several people taking photos.

We were able to see the cathedral while staying just one night in Sarajevo as it was walking distance from our hotel, Story Hotel. I't s a beautiful building at the end of the old section of town surrounded by a park like setting.

This orthodox church shows the melting of different cultures in Sarajevo. Worthy to pay a visit and see the iconen, but that tourist pay for the entry is not common, donations okay. .

For a couple of Euro's it is worth the views. The stained glass is bright and vibrant. The images are amazing, not a large area inside, but very ornate.
