The old town hall of Sarajevo, which stands out by the Miliaz River, is the most magnificent building built during the Austro-Hungarian occupation of Sarajevo and a symbol of world civilization. It was built in the Austrian = Hungarian Empire in 1892 and was combined with neoclassical and Andalusian style and was called pseudomol style. The structure is built in a symmetrical, geometrical combination of architecture from Andalusia, that is, in Morocco and Spain, and the columns are seen in the neoclassical shadows. This is because the Andalusian style became the "exotic" of the mainstream countries of Europe during that time, and this kind of meshing pseudo-Moorish style was born. The project of the old Sarajevo City Hall, which was overseen by Alexander Wittek, presented a pseudo-Moorish design that combined the perfect architectural style of the East and West. It has become the most important symbol of Sarajevo since it was first opened on 20 April 1896. It is the seat of the government of Sarajevo. It became the library of the National University of Bosnia and Herzegovina after World War II. From 25 to 26 August 1992, during the war of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the library of nearly 90 ％ was destroyed by shelling, and the building became one of the symbols of the siege of Sarajevo. The reconstruction of the building was carried out in 1996, and it was officially opened on 9 May 2014, and it is also European Day and fascism Day.
