Valter brani Sarajevo Museum to Open in Sarajevo Featured


SARAJEVO: The opening of the Valter brani Sarajevo museum, dedicated to the cult film Valter brani Sarajevo / Walter Defends Sarajevo (Sutjeska Film, 1972) directed by Hajrudin Šiba Krvavac, is set for the official Day of the City of Sarajevo, 6 April 2019. The museum is planned both as an educational facility and as a tourist attraction.

Based on the story of Valter Perić, a partisan fighter from WWII, Walter Defends Sarajevo is one of the best-known films of the period not only in the ex-Yugoslav region. It was such a hit in China that rumours about China Star Media doing a remake started circulating in 2014.
