Zeljko Komsic, a member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) visited Jajce yesterday, where he marked the day when the last Bosnian King Stjepan Tomasevic was executed in 1463.
As it was announced from his office, Komsic visited the Franciscan monastery in Jajce, where the skeletal remains of the last Bosnian King, Stjepan Tomasevic, and the site of the King’s tomb are kept.
“We would like to mark the continuity of Bosnian statehood in this way as well, by paying tribute to the last Bosnian King Stjepan Tomasevic. BiH survived and outlived the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, as well as the former Social Federalist Republic (SFR) of Yugoslavia. It means that BiH is one of the countries in a world that has outlived other, much larger, and more powerful countries that once existed, ” told Komsic.On that occasion, he sent an invitation to all citizens of BiH to gather at the King’s Tomb on June 5th every year as a traditional event whose cause would be to mark the continuity of the statehood of BiH
