Sebilj

ST. LOUIS (AP) — About 70,000 Bosnians live in the St. Louis area, and a new monument in the city’s Bevo Mill neighborhood will offer a little taste of their homeland.

The president of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Zeljko Komsic, was in St. Louis Sunday for groundbreaking of a “sebilj,” a kiosk-shaped wooden and stone fountain. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that it is a replica of the sebilj built in 1753 in Sarajevo.

Komsic was in the United States for the U.N. General Assembly last week in New York and extended his stay to visit St. Louis and other Midwestern cities with large Bosnian populations.

Komsic told Mayor Francis Slay that the sebilj was a sign of gratitude from St. Louis Bosnians to their adopted city.
