In essence, what can be seen clearly about Sarajevo is that this is a city that connects East and West – not only as different halves of the world but also culturally – with the East considered Ottoman and Islamic and the West seen as Austro-Hungarian and Christian. Right where these two cultural influences clearly meet and it seems to be the very spot in town where, with one step, you can cross from one culture to another.
