The Vraca Memorial Park (Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian: Spomen-park Vraca / Спомен-парк Враца) is a park dedicated to the World War II victims in Sarajevo. It covers 78,000 square meters and mentions the names of over 11,000 men, women, and children killed during World War II.
The idea was to rehabilitate an old Austro-Hungarian fortress by combining the work of Vladimir Dobrović as designer, Alija Kučukalić as sculptor, and Aleksandar Maltarić as landscaper. Construction began in April 1980 and was finished in November 1981. The Memorial Park was opened on November 25, 1981, the "Day of Statehood of Bosnia and Herzegovina" in SR Bosnia & Herzegovina commemorationg the date that ZAVNOBIH held their first meeting in 1943.
In 2005, the park was declared a National Monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
