Sarajevo’s long and storied history is reflected not only in its architecture, but in what covers the buildings. Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian and Communist buildings testify to the Balkan’s layered past, but what unites these buildings more often than not are the pock marks from the war in the 90s now covered in recent graffiti. Graffiti, considered a scourge by some and an art form by others, seems to be a sign of Sarajevo moving forward.
