This museum features clothing and office items from different phases of life of Alija Izetbegovic, first predsident of Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina. I liked that museum has tried to show visitors how simple Alija was during his life. Must be part of every visit

This museum is dedicated to former president Alija Izetbegovic, where we can see his achievements and the gifts what he received from world echelons. Better to visit in the evening where you can have a nice sigh seeing outside, specially in Winter.
