Renewed Hotel “Holiday” Sarajevo has officially opened tonight in the presence of a large number of domestic and foreign guests.
BiH Presidency Chairman Bakir Izetbegovic said that renovated hotel will contribute to the tourist potential of BiH.
Former hotel Holiday Inn, which was one of the pre-war symbols of Sarajevo, went bankrupt recently.
Hotel was bought by Hotel Europe Group several months ago, when its renovation started.
– I would like to use this opportunity to sincerely congratulate the owner and director of Europe Group Rasim Bajrovic. This hotel means a lot to all the people of Sarajevo. It reminds us of the Olympic Games in 1984 and the siege of Sarajevo from 1992 to 1995 – Izetbegovic said.
Rasim Bajrovic confirmed that the “Holiday” will be the largest convention center in the region.
– This is a hotel with respectable accommodation capacity: 400 rooms and 10 conference halls. We currently employ 110 people, and by the end of the year the hotel will have 200 employees – he stressed.
