Of the mentioned national monuments in B&H, two of them are highlighted for their shape and age, said the chairperson of the Commission Ljiljana Ševo.

“I am drawing special attention to the Čamdžića house which is made of wood and one of rare preserved samples of such facilities. The second monument made by national builders is the mosque near Kladanj, also made of wood and most probably dating back from the 18th century. Only several wooden mosques are preserved in B&H and, together with mosques, they make a whole which represents architectural achievements of one of the most difficult centuries in general in the history of this region,” Ševo said.
