Morica han

From about fifty that existed during the Ottoman period, Moritcha Han (Morića Han) is the only preserved Sarajevo han, the predecessors of hotels. Its dimensions are impressive, almost 50x40 metres.

In the centre of the han there was a quadrangular yard surrounded by stables and shops. The first flor contained 44 rooms for travellers, mostly traders from distant countries.

Morića Han was burnt and rebuilt several times. Today, the ground floor houses a national restaurant and a big gallery of beautifull handmade orienatal carpets enabling its visitors a shoping expirience that would usually require them to travel thousand miles further east.
