On this symbolic occasion, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Franz Wesler-Möst, music director to the Cleveland Orchestra (US) and the Vienna Opera (Austria) will be in concert in the Vijecnica.

This former city hall, built between 1892 and 1896 in neo-Moorish style by the architect Alexandre Wittek, became the national library after the Second World War.

Damaged in a fire in 1992 during the siege of Sarajevo, the building has been renovated in stages over the past fifteen years, funded by donations from several European countries and the European Commission. It was inaugurated on Europe Day, May 9th 2014. The architectural work was done by the firm Mulaomerovic and the construction work by the French company Safege.
