This is a list of people who have served as mayor or president of the city council of the city of Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Sarajevo has had 37 different mayors since the position was created on 22 August 1878, upon Austro-Hungarian occupation.


The first mayor of Sarajevo Mustafa Fadilpašić was also the city's longest-served mayor, having remained in the position for 14 years. The only mayor to serve more than once was Edhem Bičakčić, who was mayor from 1928–29, then again from 1935–39. The first non-Bosniak mayor was Aristotel Petrović (1918–1920). Semiha Borovac became Sarajevo's first female mayor in 2005. Fehim Čurčić, the city's fifth mayor, served during World War I. In 1941, Atih Hadžikadić was elected mayor, a position that was short-lived as he was hanged during World War II in August 1941.
