Ferhadija street is one of main pedestrian streets in Sarajevo, located in the municipalities of Centar and Stari Grad. The street is named after Ferhad-bey Vuković-Desisalić, a Bosnian sanjak-bey who lived in the 16th century.[1]

Ferhadija street connects to Sarači street on its east side and Marshal Tito street on its west side, and the entire street is a pedestrian zone.

History of name[edit]

Until 1928, the street was named Ferhadija, after Ferhad-bey Vuković-Desisalić, who in 1561/62 built a mosque in that street. From 1928 to 1941, when it was connected with Sarači,[2] it was named after Prince and later King Peter II Karadjordjevic. From 1941 to 1945, street returned the old name Ferhadija, and from 1945 to 1993, her name was named after Vaso Miskin Crni, national hero of Yugoslavia. Since 1993, old name has been restored.[3]
