Bosnia-Herzegovina: Sarajevo Library reconstruction

Restoration nearing completion.

Restoration work on the National and University Library, destroyed along with most of its collections in 1992, is nearing completion.

It has taken 18 years to return the building to its original state. 

The plan is to have the work completed by June to commemorate the centenary of the assassination of Austro-Hungarian crown prince Franz Ferdinand von Habsburg which took place outside the building.
