This ancient Muslim graveyard dates from the 18th century but has some tombstones from previous centuries. It is designed to look like a park. During the recent war, many citizens of Sarajevo who lived near this site were buried in Alifakovac because the usual city cemetery was close to one of the front lines and was under constant fire. Similarly, people were buried in parks, other old cemeteries, gardens, soccer fields or in areas close to the residence of the deceased person.
