Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the nonsensical destruction of the city of Sarajevo. The author presents a metaphorical vision of a new city which would materialise a syncretic, symbolic paradigm of understanding. The author rejects the present urban, barbaric method of enclosing space and the archaic, outdated and despotic ideas of the conquerors.
