On this day in 1975 Sarajevo saw opening of shopping mall known as 'Sarajka'. The official name of the socialist style building, designed by architect Vladimir Zarahovic, was 'Unima'. This shopping mall was one of Sarajevo symbols for more than three decades.
Shopping mall 'Sarajka' worked until the war when it was completely burnt down. The remains and the land were sold after the war and today's BBI shopping center was built on it and opened on 6 April 2009.
And while older generations remember Sarajka as Blue Snowflake, the term of endearment they used for the popular building, younger generations can see it only on photos of Sarajevo before the war.
