Sarajevo then and nowBosnia reopens once-destroyed “Vijecnica”

Sarajevo’s landmark 19th century city hall-turned-National Library re-opened on May 9, 2014 with its old glory fully restored, 22 years after it was destroyed by Serb shelling during the siege of the city along with its almost 2 million books and manuscripts. More than 10,000 people died during the 43-month siege of Sarajevo in which Bosnian Serbs took control of the hills surrounding the city, bombarding it with shells and killing civilians with snipers as they sought food and water.
