Photo of the Week – Roses of Sarajevo

This week's photo was taken in Sarajevo. As I was walking around the city I noticed red blotches on the pavement and I was not sure what they were. It was only when I went on the free walking tour that I was told these were the roses of Sarajevo.

Roses of Sarajevo
They are placed in the spots where people fell and died during the siege of Sarajevo. Red signifies the blood spilt. Red is also why they are called roses. Sadly, you will see several of these roses in Sarajevo.
Until the next post, stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
