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.

Svrzo House Reviews
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!
