Markala MarketsMarkala Markets and Ferhadija Street Massacre Sights: these places were the site of two of the biggest massacres (among many) of civilians during the siege and shelling of Sarajevo. Mortar shells were dropped in the middle of crowds of civilians waiting for the bread in front of a store, and gathered on a very busy market place. Those two massacres happened very close to each other, though at different times. In both cases dozens of innocent people got killed, wounded and crippled. There are stone plates with explanations about these events, dedicated to the victims.
