Despić House

muzej despica kuca sarajevo
Judging from the nature of the load-bearing elements, the types of building materials and the structural system of its various parts, the building of the house began in the 17th century and was completed during the second half of the 19th. The house was sold to the rich Orthodox family Despić that gave the house to the City as a present along with another facility in which the Museum of Literature and Performing Arts is located today.

It was in this house that the first home theatre in Bosnia and Herzegovina was founded and the first theater performances took place in the house which is the reason why the house has been considered a forerunner of the contemporary theater.

Establishing the Despić House Museum, the City of Sarajevo got another museum facility that shows the culture of living of rich, business families whose representative is Despić family.
