Object:Šeher-Čehajina Bridge and Alifakovac in winter
Description:View over the Miljacka and Šeher-Čehajina ćuprija towards the mahalla of Alifakovac during winter. The roofs, the bridge and hills in the background are covered with snow. A few people are crossing the bridge. A large poplar tree dominates on the right, hiding part of the Inat kuća just behind. Next to the tree, the minaret of the Vekil Harč Mustafa Mosque lookes very modest in height.
