Sarajevo Spite House | To Bosnia

Sarajevo Spite House

The Spite (bosnian Inat kuća) house, which has now been turned into a restaurant, is known all over the world. During the Austro-Hungarian period, the authorities wanted to build a church and library in the Old Town. The location for the building of the City Hall was on the right bank of the Miljacka River.

The ruling monarchy wanted to build a building never seen before in Sarajevo to show its power to the population. The construction of the City Hall has provided for the demolition of surrounding houses with compensation, including the house of the old Benderija, the native of Sarajevo. He did not give up his house for any reason, because that house was his peace of mind. After long negotiations, the stubborn old man asked the Monarchy to pay him a bag of ducks and to transfer his house to the other side of the Mill Mill with a brick, stone on the stone.

They had no choice but to do as he asked. Since then, Benderia’s house has been called “Inat house” by his own name. The house is still here today to defy all governments and symbolize the Bosnian incarnation.

In 1997, “Inat House” was turned into a traditional Bosnian restaurant.

The prize story has a church monument in England. Joseph Edleston died in 1904 at Gainford where he served in the local church for 41 years. After his death, the family wanted to make a monument in the church yard, but they were denied it. They offered the family another country, but the family refused and built a house next to the church and a monument that is higher than the trees in the yard of the church.

On the list, houses were built to support the LGBT population, a consequence of family members’ quarrels, processes with city authorities, and a dispute with customers.
