    A reminder so we don't forget.
    Its always nice to see a city's eternal flame as it allows people to pay respects to those that served and fell and those that still serve. It allows us to remember our mistakes and ensure we don't make them in the future. It was nice to see when we walked past. Its at the start of Ferhadija street.

    Eternal Flame
    The Sarajevo Eternal Flame is a memorial to those who liberated Sarajevo during World War II and was unveiled in 1946 after the first anniversary of the liberation of Sarajevo. Like all eternal flames, this is an open flame that is always burning. ​​The flame can be found at the former National Bank building at the junction of Mula Mustafa Bašeskije, Titova and Ferhadija Streets.

    Worth stopping for a look
    There is nothing to really tour here; it's the open air memorial and eternal flame which was dedicated after WWII. It's pretty accessible on a walking tour, right near the intersection where the Austrian-architecture Ferhadija Street becomes the more modern-architecture Marsala Tita street. It's worth taking a few minutes to look at the memorial if you are walking in the area.

    Reminder of what was
    Located close to the national bank building, the flames never goes out. It is a reminder of Bosnia's unfortunate past and hopes of a better and brighter future. For the visitor it's a flame but for the Bosnians it signifies a lot.

I read in other reviews this Eternal Flame is "nothing special" and "don't walk out of your way to see it" and I find that disrespectful and rude. As an American, I can't imagine I would laugh if a foreign visitor scoffed at the importance of our Liberty Bell, the monuments to our presidents, and those to our war heroes along Washington, DC's National Mall.

The Eternal Flame is very important! It marks the end of WWII and surviving the Nazi regime. If you've seen any TV footage from the civil war, you'll recognize it.

Don't disrespect your hosts. If you're in the neighborhood (which you should visit to see the differences between Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian architecture), pay your respects (or not, but don't disparage their sacrifices) and move on.

It is interesting to know the flame has been continuous except when the gas lines were cut during the civil war.

Eternal flame (Croatian: Vječna vatra) is located on the road Maršala Tita, Sarajevo, Bosnia i Herzegovina. This place was built for memorial the World war 2. It tells us : the price of war is uncountable, no matter is physical or potential. The bullet holes are still on the wall. They remind the citizens PEACE and FREEDOM are what we need. The flame also gives off heat to the people who walk through the street in the Winter. Stand in front of the Eternal flame, you will feel the atmosphere.

The monument was built on 6th April 1946 at the anniversary of the liberation of Sarajevo from fascism in the Second World War.
Czech architect Karel Pařík, born in Austro-Hungarian empire and lived in Sarejevo made the building (also the Museum, City Hall, st Joseph church, Palace of Justice, Marijin Dvor and many other important buildings in late 19, and begining of the 20 century,)
Architect Juraja Najthart preserved the former Parik`s building adding a place for eternal flame which in the memory of brave partizans who liberated Sarajevo.
6.April 1992 was another important day in the history of Sarajevo. The four year siege of town, the longest after World War II, started. Town was faced up to fascists again. As town was without gas and energy there were no flame in this monument. After this period, not many people call it Eternal Flame. Eternity become something more spiritual to common citizen of Sarajevo. They use to call that place "Burning Tire". Respect to forces who liberate town in 1945 is still present. But philosophical approach to eternity was changed.

The Eternal Flame of Sarajevo was erected after WWII, but with the horrid bullet holes on it from the city's siege makes you think it is to commemorate the war on Bosnia between 1992-95. Most touching.

Worth seeing if you are a history buff or are interested in World War history. Good place for an interesting photo background. It's on the walking street so easy to find if you are in the downtown enjoying the walking street.

You might pass this by amid the hustle and bustle of an everyday in Sarajevo as its one of those memorials that local people see all the time. Make time to stop by and take this in early morning or just before dusk when the rush hour as yet started if you want to pay your respects. Strangely though to stop when the crowds are dashing by is somehow more poignant when you think of those same people trying to live a "normal" live under the fire of Serb guns.
