Trip Planner: Europe / Bosnia and Herzegovina / Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina / Sarajevo Canton / Sarajevo / Svrzo House
Built entirely from wood, Svrzo House represents an example of an old Ottoman house, excellently preserved and open for self-guided tours. Dating back to the 18th century, the site was home to a wealthy urban family, and it featured separate living quarters for men, women, and servants. You'll see two defined parts of the household--one for the family, and one intended for hosting guests and entertaining. Learn about the Ottoman lifestyle and see typical home decor from the era. Observe the living room's low semi-quadrate seating area, which was the social norm for urban Turkish houses. Put Svrzo House into our Sarajevo trip itinerary app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Svrzo House Reviews
Αξίζει να πάρετε μία ιδέα για το πως ζούσαν οι εύπορες οικογένειες παλιά. Όμορφος και προσεγμένος χώρος. more »It's worth getting an idea of how wealthy families used to live. Beautiful and thoughtful place.
Casa Ottomana perfettamente conservata dopo tutte le vicissitudini che ha passato Sarajevo. Prezzo molto contenuto more »Ottoman house perfectly preserved after all the vicissitudes that passed Sarajevo. Very low price
Amazing museum house. I don't know what a previous reviewer was talking about to not expect much! It was even more cool than I expected! Descriptions in every room in English and Bosnian, it's super quiet and peaceful (even on a Saturday when we went), a true glimpse into what life was like during the time period. Come here if you want to be transported to another time in Sarajebo's history! Entry is 3KM.
A wonderful hidden gem and one of the finest examples of Ottoman architecture in Sarajevo. Two beautiful courtyards surrounded by various wooden rooms complete with authentic furniture. Worth the short climb from Bascarsija!
