Sarajevo,1926.

First of all, this post isn’t about the way Bosnian Muslim women are dressed today. However,i am from Bosnia and it isn’t at all rare to see women in hijab. Niqab is a bit more rare, but they are there.
But the post was about how they used to dress before Communism when the niqab was banned. Yes, the pictures are of Bosnian women. Some our great grandmothers used to dress this way.



This is from Sarajevo 1926.
