The Four Rooms of Mrs. Safija


Safija’s incarnates all those marvellous features that are intrinsic part of genetic heritage of these regions, Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It cherishes a spirit of a long gone, but fine times, when people were devotedly appreciating kindness, modesty, refinement, good manners, hospitality, culture, arts…

Times when it was equally important to take special care about quality of food as well as about proper serving and appropriate course of dishes served. Safija’s character was inevitably marked by her love for a man who did not belong in her world, equally as she was a stranger to his, facts that made their love almost impossible in those days.

But as we already know – love, when strong and selfless, is indestructible and nothing can stand on its way. Safija’s and Johan’s story overgrew both time and space and became one of most magical love stories in this region. As a pledge of his love, Johan gave Safija a house on Čekaluša that modest as she was, regardless of wealth Safija came from, she wished for.
