Festivals


Olympic Hall Zetra is an indoor arena in Sarajevo. It was built in 1983 and a year after held the ice hockey games and speed skating events in the 1984 Winter Olympics. At the moment, the arena hosts sport events and concerts.

Last night, my roommates, their boyfriend and sister and I went to Zetra to see the ballet "Swan Lake" performed by the Imperial Russian Ballet ensemble from Russia.This event was part of the Zetra Festival.
