Turkish student graduated from Bosnian school after 135 years
The Gazi Husrev Madrasah (religious high school), built under the commission of Sultan Bayezid II’s grandson Gazi Husrev Bey in 1537, is one of the rare institutions in the Bosnia and Herzegovina and Europe which has provided education for 463 continuous years.
Many students from Anatolia had graduated from this school, which was an important educational institution in the Balkans during the Ottoman period, until the annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina to the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1878.
During the 463th graduation ceremony held last Saturday, Saliha Balci became the first student from Anatolia to graduate from the school in 135 years.
