Restored National Library is seen in Sarajevo
The restored National Library is seen in Sarajevo, May 8, 2014. Sarajevo's City Hall, a stately neo-Moorish edifice marked by the violence of two 20th-century wars, has returned to its old glory after being destroyed by Serb shelling during the siege of the city in 1992. The building, first opened in 1896, has been restored to mark the centenary of the start of World War One, triggered by the assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand just after he left a reception there in June 1914. Converted into the National Library in 1949, it went up in flames in August 1992, destroying almost two million books including many rare volumes reflecting its multicultural life under the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empires. Ceremonies to mark the reopening of "Vijecnica" (city hall), as it is known here, were due to take place later on May 9. Picture taken May 8.
