Stara Posta

It is old post office from the Austrian era at the end of 19th century always in the same use. It is large and nicely decorated building. There is a post office building like this made about the same time in Prague. In the last war and siege it was the first important building which has been burned by shelling from the top of nearest mountain. Aggressors destroyed it first because that way they broke phone links in almost half of the town of Sarajevo. Among younger generations, this building is known by some silly graphitees from before the war. Just before the war some nationalist wrote a spraypaint graffiti on the wall of this post office that says "this is Serbia", and next day someone added below that sentence an answering graffiti: "this is post office you fool".
