Yenibosna is a borough within the district of Bahçelievler in west Istanbul, Turkey.

The borough is in the west of Bahçelievler, bordering with the neighbor district Küçükçekmece. The original settlement was initially named Saraybosna, the Turkish language name for the city Sarajevo, which had previously been under Turkish rule during the Ottoman Empire period. Saraybosna remained a small settlement despite being a short distance from Istanbul, the capital of Ottoman Empire, and the earliest population record was 350. The founding of Republic of Turkey saw rapid development of the area, which was absorbed into Istanbul and the current name of Yenibosna was adopted. The remains of the old settlement can be seen in the courtyard behind Yenibosna Primary School. [1]
