Old Orthodox Church

Church in Sarajevo

Within this outwardly austere little 1740 stone church is a superb gilded iconostasis fronted by a pair of 3m-high candlesticks. Some icons date to the 17th century. Many more are displayed in a cloister museum which also shows old manuscripts, vestments and church paraphernalia.

Beside the museum entrance there's a little wine shop with tastings possible (4KM per glass) in a cafe-like area shaded by a veil of vines.
