Description
The historic building of the Bistrik railway station in Sarajevo is in the residential quarter known as Bistrik, on the slopes of Mt. Trebević, in the Old City. It was built in 1906. The building was designed by the Technical Department of the Bosnia and Herzegovina State Railways. It was built as a type project (the same type was built in Pale); the architect is not known.The construction of the railway station and its ancillary facilities, the station buffet, manager’s offices and warehousing, as well as of the embankments, tunnels and bridge, completed altered the appearance of the old mahala. It did not destroy the overall townscape, since the complex fitted relatively well into this part of Bistrik as a whole.With the closure of the eastern line in 1973, the Bistrik railway station lost its original importance. The Bistrik railway station is now in poor structural condition, partly because of the war and partly because of inappropriate structural interventions. All that remains of the rest of the complex is ruins. The city bypass road now runs along the former route of the railway line. / BH Commission to Preserve National Monuments.
