The Sarajevo Assassination Museum and the Latin Bridge - the most important information

Back in 1914, on Vidovdan, Gavrilo Princip, a high school student from Sarajevo and a member of the "Young Bosnia" organization, assassinated the Austro-Hungarian heir to the throne Franz Ferdinand and his wife. This event changed the course of history, and soon after it the First World War began. The Austro-Hungarian government erected a monument to Franz Ferdinand and Sofia Hohenberg across the site of the assassination - on the Latin Bridge. After the creation of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, this monument was removed, and the Museum of the Sarajevo Assassination was opened at that place, about which you can find out more in the text below.

About the Latin Bridge
The Latin Bridge was built by Ali Ajni-beg in the second half of the 16th century. Originally, this bridge had 5 arches, one of which disappeared during the construction of the Miljacka riverbed. Today, the Latin Bridge has 4 arches and rests on 3 pillars, which are firmly connected to the coast. It is built of stone and plaster, and you can notice 2 free openings on it (the so-called eyes of the bridge, which you can also see on the coat of arms of the city of Sarajevo). The Latin Bridge is a witness to an event that will be remembered forever, and it was this event that gave it another name - Princip's Bridge.
