WELCOME TO BOSNIA

AND HERZEGOVINA

Sarajevo
RevolutiON

A PLACE OF UNIQUE CULTURE


Bosnia and Herzegovinas capital, Sarajevo, is the country's largest city, as well as the countrys
administrative, economic, cultural, scientific and sports center. Situated in the area called
Sarajevo valley, the town is surrounded by Oylmpic mountains - Jahorina, Bjelanica, Igman,
Treskavica and Trebevi. River Miljacka flows through the city. The area has been inhabited
since ancient times, and the Illyrians, Romans and the Slavs have all left their traces. For several
hundred years, the borders of two great empires, the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian, which
represented the two superpowers of the world of that time - East and West - met in Bosnia and
Herzegovina. This made the country and its capital a crossroads for different worlds a place
where Europe and the Orient met in the heart of the Balkans. Sarajevo is a place where, during
a 10 minute walk you can see places of worship for the worlds most widespread monotheistic
religions: there are Orthodox and Catholic churches, synagogues and mosques. All of these
traditions have given Sarajevo a specific aroma and a particular cultural mix. If you add the
heritage from the socialist period, the resilient spirit which emerged during the siege, as well as
Sarajevos modern and vivacious scene, you get a fascinating spiritual tapestry. Sarajevos
valley, which first appears as a small and narrow space, actually serves as a vast platform
where different expressions of traditional culture find their place, along with everything that is
seen as modern, progressive and alternative. Just like bridges, Sarajevo is destined to connect
different forms of spirituality, to make new, unique one.

CULTURE SHARING
The European Jerusalem
Sarajevo is a city with a rich cultural heritage. Different cultures and traditions have
mingled here for centuries, giving rise to a unique clutural mix. Only in Sarajevo can you
find a Synagogue, Cathedral, Orthodox church and a Mosque within a 500 meter radius.

SARAJEVO, JUNE 28TH 1914.


Two bullets which were fired in a Sarajevo on a sunny June morning in 1914 set in motion
a series of events that shaped the world we live in today.
On June 28th 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand - heir to the throne of the AustroHungarian Empire, and his wife Sophie, who were in the Sarajevo on an official visit were
shot dead by Gavrilo Princip, one of a group of six assassins. The couple was returning
from an official visit to the City Hall when the assassin, 19-year-old Gavrilo Princip who
was burning with the fire of Slavic nationalism, changed the course of history. Many
historians agree that this wasnt the direct cause of the World War I, but that it was a
spark that set a series of events into motion which then lead to its outbreak - World War.
The conspirators, all of whom were arrested and tried, were buried at St. Marks
cemetery in Koevo, a Sarajevo neighborhood, where a chapel for St.Vitus Day was
erected in their house. The archduke was killed in front of the building which now houses
a museum covering the history of Sarajevo during the period of Austro-Hungarian rule.

AIESEC BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA


AIESEC in Bosnia and Herzegovina exists since 1953, which makes us one of the oldest
AIESEC countries in the world. As part of former Yugoslavia, Local Committee Sarajevo
was the first one to be established in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Sarajevo was the first to
be established in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since then, thousands of BosnianHerzegovinian students were AIESEC members. One of the things we are most proud
of is the story of AIESEC in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war from 1992 to 1995.
AIESEC managed to survive, working under conditions no man could work. AIESEC
Bosnia and Herzegovina gained member status as independent country in 1993.

In the beginning of 2000. AIESEC Sarajevo gained a full-member status and later on, in
2006. so did AIESEC in Mostar. In 2011. initiatives in Zenica and Banja Luka were
created. Zenica and Banja Luka gained statuses of Official Extensions in 2012. Local
committees in Tuzla and Bijeljina are in the process of being formed. So today, AIESEC
in Bosnia and Herzegovina works in 6 major cities.
