RECONSTRUCTION OF SARAJEVO LIBRARY NEARING END

“Workers are rushing to finish the reconstruction of the Sarajevo Library – a landmark destroyed during the Bosnian war – in time for the June ceremonies marking the centenary of the assassination that ignited World War I. The reconstruction has taken 18 years – nine times longer than the building’s original construction 120 years ago by the Austro-Hungarian Empire that ruled over Bosnia then and built it to be the City Hall. Later it was turned into the National Library.” (via The Associated Press)
