Thanks to “Sarajevo Reborn”, historical figures from the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina met with Aleksa Santic and Emina today on the Old Bridge in Mostar.
Sarajevo Reborn is a segment of the project “Sunny Side of the Federation of BiH 2019”, in which young Bosnian actors, costumed into historical figures from two of the most significant periods of BiH’s past, the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian ones, wander through the streets of Sarajevo to entertain local and foreign visitors, following the example of world metropolises.
The aim is, in an interactive and imaginative way, to introduce them to the history of BiH and its capital.
Five young actresses and actors from different parts of BiH have embodied Isa-beg Ishakovic, founder of Sarajevo, Gazi Husrev-beg, his second founder, Austro-Hungarian Crown Prince Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie, and Gavrilo Princip, a member of “Young Bosnia” In 1914, who assassinated this couple, which led to the outbreak of World War I.
The five of them met in Mostar with the famous Mostar poet Aleksa Santic and Emina, to whom he dedicated one of his most beautiful love poems, Oslobodjenje reports.
