FIRDUZ-BEY’S HAMMAM: Revitalization of the archaeological site
The most important event for the cultural heritage in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and especially in Sarajevo in 2010, was the research of the archaeological site called Firduz/Firuz’s hammam and the discovery of its remarkably valuable substructures. The authentic remains of the hammam’s hypocaustum bear vividly witness to the concept, method and building technique of this type of structures in the Ottoman period. That valuable site should be presented and accessible to the wider public, that is, needs to be conserved, restored and adequately integrated into the contemporary life of the Baščaršija quarter in Sarajevo.
