It wouldn’t be that special a place compared to other European Cathedrals, but thanks to its location in an open square surrounded by cafe’s, restaurants and shops, the Cathedral manages to hold it’s own with its classically Gothic Architecture. Its pretty and serene inside – nothing complicated. Pope John Paul II served mass here in 1997, so that’s one claim to fame. Like practically every building of importance in Sarajevo, it was grossly damaged in the Bosnian War; it’s since been repaired. Walking around the sides of the church, you’ll see the Sarajevo Roses, and remember the lives lost to the siege.

  • On all Sundays, an English mass is held at 12:00 pm.

  • In the middle of very busy and vibrant Square is this beautiful Catholic Church. Make sure you come and check it so you experience the different religious centers of Sarajevo. The beauty of the stained glass is such a contrast to an Orthodox Church which is plain in comparison or a Mosque which needs to be visited to be explained

  • Central Catholic Church in the old town, part of the neighborhood constructed during Austrian-Hungarian rule. In front of the building is a small square with Saint Pope John Paul II statue. The square also serves as the most common meeting point for young people in Sarajevo.

  • Must see in Sarajevo! Really beautiful architecture and inside very peaceful! If you are in Sarajevo don't forget this beautiful cathedral!

  • Beautiful. Free entrance. Also you will see outside one of the "Sarajevo roses" : craters left by fatal mortar strikes that have been filled with red painting.

  • Whilst a strong and important symbol of the multicultural atmosphere of Sarajevo, the cathedral as such is not that impressive from a (touristic) historical perspective. Neo-Gothic example of 19th century ecclesiastical architecture - nothing special...
