About the tour

The mystery of the Sarajevo Haggadah

It has been long time since the middle of the 14th century, the golden age of Spain when the amazing and incomparable “Sarajevo Haggadah” was created. It still remains unclear whether we will ever learn the date and place of the book’s making, the symbol of liberation, which has also become a symbol of Sarajevo. 

Without a doubt, the most valuable piece in the collection of the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is the Sarajevo Haggadah.

This priceless masterpiece of medieval Judaica most likely originated in 14th century Spain and may have been made as a wedding present, celebrating the union of two families whose coats of arms appear in the bottom corners of the book. It is known that the Haggadah left Spain after the expulsion of Jews in 1492, that it traveled throughout Europe and it most likely arrived in Sarajevo with Jews who had found refuge here during the 16th century.
