The National Library, one of Sarajevo's most well known sites, was built around 1896. Originally the building was used as the city hall, but was converted into a library in 1945.

The City Hall was designed by architect Alexander Wittek in pseudo-Moorish style. The archetype technique is of the so-called Mosarabian and Moorish art of the Spanish and the Gibraltar (Magrib) origin. The basic construction elements are columns, walls, arches and a glass dome over the hall. The building is of a triangular base with the six-angular core.

25 August 1992, it was hit by an incendiary round, which destroyed the buildings interior.
