Olympic Museum in Sarajevo reopens after being destroyed during the Bosnian War

On 8 October 2020, the Olympic Museum in Sarajevo has been reopened, almost three decades after being destroyed during the Bosnian War between 1992 and 1995. The museum, built as a villa in the early 20th century, honours the memory of the 1984 Sarajevo Winter Olympic Games.

During the reopening ceremony, the Mayor of Sarajevo, Abdulah Skaka, said: “At the beginning of our mandate, we clearly said that we would restore all the destroyed and demolished symbols of this city, and slowly, our dream is coming true.”
