Conference venue

The 15th International CIRCLE Conference will take place in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Hercegovina.

Hotel Holiday is a modern and luxurious hotel,  located in the heart of Sarajevo and epicenter of business activity. It was  built in 1984 during the 14th Winter Olympic games Sarajevo , and since then is a witness of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s recent history and a certain check point  for businessmen and tourists. The creator and mastermind behind the design is the celebrated Bosnia and Herzegovina’s architect Ivan Štraus. With his specific artistic expression he succeeded in conveying the essence of the people and the aesthetic of the traditional house into a structure of such contemporary design. That approach is best articulated in the interior which is designed  to portray the intimacy and the aesthetic of the courtyard indigenous to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s architectural and cultural tradition.

Successor of the best know hotel chain and hotel ‘Holiday Inn’, our hotel is now part of the most successful brand Europe group with hotel Europe at its lead, whose own tradition goes back to 1882. With such rich background hotel Holiday will delight guests with its traditional elegance, high quality service and special features.
