An entire section of Sarajevo got its name from Marijin dvor, a building in Sarajevo. This neighborhood is recognizable by the fact that there are buildings that are heritage from the period of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The building was constructed by Austrian August Braun, who named it and the neighborhood by his wife's name, Marija. There is also a street in the neighborhood named after him, Ulica Augusta Brauna.
In the vicinity are many important buildings of Sarajevo city itself; National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Holiday Inn Sarajevo, UNITIC World Trade Towers, Sarajevo City Center, Greece–Bosnia and Herzegovina Friendship Building (old Parliament building pre-1992) as well as Alta Shopping Sarajevo, Hastahana Skate Park and others.
The UNITIC Twin Skyscrapers were built in 1980s. They were colloquially named "Momo and Uzeir" after two characters from a radio comedy show, a Serb and a Bosniak. The towers were heavily damaged by shelling during the Siege of Sarajevo but remained standing, becoming symbols of resilience. They were renovated after the war.
