Built for the '84 Olympics, the hotel became the headquarters for foreign press covering the Siege of Sarajevo in the 1990s. Serb snipers agreed to not fire upon the hotel, but once you stepped outside, all bets were off.

On April 1992, a peace rally across from Parliament was broken up by shots that came from this Holiday Inn. This act set the Siege's wheels in motion.
