Stacks Image 219891

Based on the Constitution of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, on 16 December 1977, the Decision on the Establishment of the Municipality of Stari Grad was adopted.
This decision determines the municipal boundaries and the listof the inhabited settlements and sites that belong to the Old Town Municipality. The Municipality of Stari Grad is one of the nine municipalities of Sarajevo Canton, one of the four municipalities of Sarajevo City and also an urban, administrative, business, cultural, educational, health and commercial-service center of Sarajevo. Since anciant times, in the area of today's Sarajevo there have been Illyran, Neolithic settlements, including the medieval Trgovište (Market town) and rural settlements of Koševo, Bistrik, Bjelave, Radilovići and Brodac As an urban place Sarajevo begins to develop in the middle of the 15th century by building an administrative court or Gazi Isa-beg Ishakovic's Saraj (palace). The narrower location of this Saraj is the area of the former barracks of the Second Military District (near Turbet of 7 Brothers), which has become the building of the Ministry of Defense of BiH.

The process of forming the city of Sarajevo, and thus the streets and squares began five centuries ago, and was carried out sometimes fast, sometimes slowly. The old part of the town with its streets and squares was the main part of the settlement.
The first mahalas (city districts) were created around the Isa-bey's endowements, where the first streets were formed along the old route of the roads.
An intense development began around the first roads in the settlement, which lasted until the beginning of the 17th century when the city territory was built in its entirety. Towards the end of the Turkish administration, the city had 328 small streets, blind alleys, and open spaces (mejdani) that were territorially organized in 104 larger units - mahalas. Mahalas are the prototype of today's local communities. 
Today, there are 5 squares and 339 streets in the area of Stari Grad Municipality.

At the session of the Municipal Council of Stari Grad Sarajevo, held on 21 May 2001, the Decision was unanimously adopted that the second of May will be marked as the Day of the Municipality of Stari Grad in the future. On that date, in 1992, the fate of the Old City and Sarajevo was to be decided.
For the first time, in 2002, the second of May was celebrated as the Day of the Municipality of Stari Grad Sarajevo. From that day until today, the Day of Stari Grad Municipality is celebrated solemnly through various cultural, sports, entertainment and contents dedicated to the veterans population as well as to the youngest.
