Lonely Planet theme guides - history "Despite the highly visible scars of war, Sarajevo is today a town that bursts with energy. Even so, a stroll along Sarajevo's Miljacka River can be sobering, given the obvious destruction that so recently took place here. Walk long enough and you'll be depressed enough to handle what you'll find on the wall of the one-room City Museum: A plaque, probably attached to the wall (it gets stolen from time to time), commemorates an event that will never be forgotten. On this corner, WWI began." - Wow, what a bizarre thing that must be to read. I wish I could steal this sign!
