Despić House is a house museum built by the wealthy, Serbian mercantile family, Despić, then one of the wealthiest and most prominent Serb families in Sarajevo. The house was built in several phases in three different periods, the oldest part dates from the 17th century. The design and decorations of the house display the changing tastes as the Ottomans began to lose control of its Balkans territories. Most of the rooms have Ottoman influences. Later additions to the room incorporate European and especially French influences.

Despić family, who donated the house to the city of Sarajevo together with another building, which today houses the Museum of Literature and Theater Arts.] The significance of this house lies in the fact that the first classical theatre performances took place in it, so that this building can be considered the forerunner of the modern theatre in Sarajevo.

Located on the north bank of the River Miljacka, in the heart of the city, this is an example of an old merchant house. It was constructed in 1881 by one of the wealthiest ethnic Serb families in the city.

Loved this place as it is like stepping back in time. The guide who works there is very knowledgable and interesting so the combination of his story and the house itself truely is a winning combination.

This is on of 6 small museums we bought a joint ticket for at the Jewish Museum. It took about 20-30 minutes to walk through it.

It was nice to see what was the way to furnish you house in the 19th century as you see fragments of this in many of the shops and cafes in the old town. The museum also show a little of the theatre history of Sarajevo.

Despic House, located close to Latin Bridge is one of least mentioned places in Sarajevo guides. The place gives a very good view of daily life of a rich family through the 19th century Sarajevo. The staff is very willing to tell you the details of the family who used to own the house.

Dine on the river at Inat Kuca, and enjoy some Bosnian specialties. We had the pura -- it is a hearty dish (we couldn't finish it), klepe -- dumplings in a delicious sauce, and stuffed onions.

A house belonging to an old Serbian bourgeois family from the Austro-Hungarian period, it offers a good insight into the way of life of that period. It lasted, until the coimmunists took it away all

The Despic House belonged to the wealthy Orthodox family at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. You can see many interesting items which belonged to members of the family. The Despic family donated this house to the city of Sarajevo. Now it's museum-house. And if you 're a museum lover you should definitely visit it. 👍
