About us and our hotel

Isa-beg’s tekija is one of the most important tekijas in Sarajevo, it was built before 1462; it is considered the oldest institution in Sarajevo.
Isa-beg Ishakovic, the founder of Sarajevo, listed it in his deed of endowment (vakufnama) written in year 1462. Among other estates, he mentions, a musafirhana (shelter for pilgrims and travellers). The Tekija has been damaged, destroyed in fires and floods many times and it was completely reconstructed several times.
