A few facts about Sarajevo Sarajevo is the capital and largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, located on the banks of the Miljacka River, within the greater Sarajevo valley and surrounded by the Dinaric Alps on all sides. The name Sarajevo derives from the Turkish noun saray, meaning "palace" or "mansion", thereby making the name of Sarajevo, 'city of the palace." Just as in virtually every other Bosnian town or city, here too East meets West and their traditions, beliefs, histories and architectures mix and combine in a rather unique way.
Sarajevo is the political, financial, social and cultural centre of Bosnia and Herzegovina and a prominent centre of culture in the Balkans, with region-wide influence in entertainment, media, fashion and the arts. Sarajevo is sometimes called the "Jerusalem of Europe" or "Jerusalem of the Balkans", due to its long history of religious and cultural diversity. It is one of only a few major European cities to have a mosque, Catholic church, Orthodox church and synagogue within the same neighbourhood. Even though settlement in the area stretches back to prehistoric times, the modern city arose as an Ottoman stronghold in the 15th century. In 1885, Sarajevo was the first city in Europe and the second city in the world to have a full-time electric tram network running through the city, following San Francisco.
In 1914, it was the site of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinandby local Young Bosnia activist GavriloPrincip that triggered World War I. In the aftermath of World War II, the establishment of Socialist Yugoslavia led to a massive expansion of Sarajevo, then the constituent republic's capital, which culminated with the hosting of the 1984 Winter Olympics. However, after the start of the Yugoslav Wars, for 1,425 days from April 1992 to February 1996, the city suffered the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare, during the Bosnian War and the breakup of Yugoslavia. Sarajevo has been undergoing post-war reconstruction, and is the fastest growing city in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
