Zlatna ribica (Goldfish) is definitely a place so unique that it would be too bad for you to say that you didn’t visit it while in Sarajevo. Why is it so unique? It must have something to do with the very original interior decoration; an eclectic mix of 20s, 30s, 40s; nice music and interesting atmosphere. And the fact that it’s one of the cult classics of Sarajevo.
It is located near the Eternal flame, just across from it and down one small alley. The entrance facade is very decorative and appealing – it catches the eye and invites you to come inside and see what is hidden in a very narrow space. There are about ten small tables inside, which makes it so much more charming and intimate. When I was in high school, it was my favourite place to have drinks with friends. Probably not the most appropriate for my age at the time, but I just loved it. And I think that’s one of its charms – there are no age limits whatsoever.
The dim lighting and jazz music accents the whole decoration and takes me to another era…Even if it’s just for an hour or a two. I know that I would definitely love it if I, as a tourist, happened to stumble upon it. Lovely finding!
