Rusko Selo

The village is to be named “Rusko Selo” (Russian village), and will be situated on the former Olympic site of mount Trebević. The goal is to add a multicultural dimension to Sarajevo, with this orthodox village, composed of traditional houses of the 19th century. This project is launched with a Russian businessman, Alan Glazov, who initially wished to reproduce the idea of Küstendorf in the Caucasus.
