Sarajevo Ramazan Festival / Sarajevo Ramadan Festival

BHS: Tokom mjeseca ramazana na Žutoj tabiji traje Sarajevo Ramazan Festival, koji ima za cilj prezentirati lijepe ramazanske običaje i bogatstvo islamske kulture i umjetnosti. Festival se održava na Žutoj (Jekovačkoj) tabiji, odakle tokom ramazana u akšam (sumrak) tradicionalno puca top koji označava vrijeme iftara – prekida posta koji traje od izlaska do zalaska sunca. U sklopu Sarajevo Ramazan Festivala se, pored iftara na bedemu sa predivnim pogledom na gradsku panoramu, organizuje bogat kulturni i zabavni program koji uključuje koncerte, izložbe, predavanja, projekcije filmova, promocije knjiga. Kako ramazan u Sarajevu nije samo vjerski nego i društveni događaj, druženja nakon iftara znaju potrajati satima, a grad živi sve do ranih jutarnjih sati, do samog sehura (obroka nakon kojeg počinje cjelodnevni post).Sarajevo Ramazan Festival kreirali su Fondacija Sarajevo Navigator i Zona unaprijeđenog poslovanja (ZUP) Baščaršija, u svrhu upotpunjavanja turističke ponude destinacije Sarajevo.

ENG: Sarajevo Ramadan Festival which is happening during the month of Ramadan, aims to present lovely Ramadan customs and the richness of Islamic arts and culture. The festival is held on Žuta Tabija (Jekovac), where a cannon blast at sunset marks the end of the day’s fast, which starts at sunrise. In addition to serving iftars up on the old fortress, which offers a panoramic view of the city, the festival also organizes a full cultural and entertainment program, with concerts, exhibits, lectures, films, book promotions….Since Ramadan in Sarajevo is not just a religious event, but also a social one, socializing after iftar can last for hours, and the city is alive until the wee hours, up until sehur, the pre-dawn meal eaten before the  day-long fast begins.The Sarajevo Ramadan Festival was initiated by the Sarajevo Navigator Foundation and the Baščaršija Business Improvement Zone (ZUP) so as to make the touristic offering for Destination Sarajevo more complete.
