Gazi-Husrev Beg's Bezistan in Central Sarajevo is great example of a 15th Century covered market with an attractive exterior and bustling arcade atmosphere once inside. Although everything on sale is a far cry from what would have been sold in 15th Century it is a...More

This Bezistan is pretty much like a former sample of Bursa or Istanbul covered bazaars. You can find copper works as well as clothing as its name represents.
