The house belonged to the wealthy Orthodox Christian Despić family, which donated the house to the City.
1ABOUT
The Despićs, who made their fortune as artisans and traders, were members of the Sarajevo elite at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. Despić House even served as a precursor to the city’s modern theater, with the first theatrical performances given in the drawing room of the home. The house contains many interesting items which belonged to members of the family, including the will made by the most famous and influential Despić, Hajji Makso, as well as the piano that belonged to his Austrian daughter-in-law, Wilhemina “Mina” Despić, which was produced by a family-run company, Neubauer, in Vienna.
