The Sarajevo Youth Theater is an exceptional cultural institution that pays attention to the performance of plays intended for young generations, but also for a wider audience. After World War II, the new Yugoslav communist authorities began a major program of cultural and artistic expansion. In 1950, two theaters intended for children were founded in Sarajevo: Pionirsko pozorište and Puppet Theater. The first one did not have its own professional ensemble, but would hire actors from more famous Yugoslav theaters for individual productions.

The latter, directed by Adolf Pomezni, mainly focused on productions based on marionettes. In 1961, Pionirsko pozorište, which at that time was managed by the founder of the International Theater Festival MESS Jurislav Korenić, formed its first professional ensemble and changed its name to Sarajevo Youth Theater. In 1977, the Puppet Theater was merged with the Sarajevo Youth Theater. At that time, notable productions were J.

Skupa-K.Venig's Lucky Among the Bugs, Josip Vandot's Kekec, D. Bibanović's Pinocchio, L.Paljetka's Alice in Wonderland, Šimić's Palčić Dougonj i Cinderella, D.

Todorović's Na Lutkarska, Temperov's Shakespeare and Komedija of mistakes, Aristophanes' Birds, Homer's Odyssey, Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi, Držić's Novel of Stanac, Eugène Ionesco's The Exodus of the King, Kurić's Beauty and the Beast, Lukić's And Again Nušić and Bašeski and many others, the dream of Sarajevo. At the beginning of the siege of Sarajevo and the war in BiH in 1992, the theater continued to work and, in cooperation with the International Theater Festival MESS and a full hand of theater professionals, including Haris Pašović and Gradimir Gojer, continued to hold theater performances. A number of renowned directors, including Susan Sontag, directed productions at the theater during the siege. It was reopened commercially in 1997 and renovated in 2016.
