In this period since passing an important exam in college, I continued treating myself with some travel. Local tourism. Yesterday’s visit to Jajce proved once more to me that local tourism is a great thing. Low expenses. No need for planning. Everything done in just one day. And great experience. So, wherever you live, I suggest you visit some interesting place in your surroundings, where you’ve never been before. Most probably, there are many such places.

Now some background info. I live in Banja Luka. It’s around 50 kilometers north from Jajce. I decided to visit Jajce because it’s so near to where I live AND very famous for a number of things:

  • It has one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, at the confluence of Pliva and Vrbas river.
  • It was a very important city in medieval Bosnian Kingdom. It was the residence of Bosnian kings in 14th and 15th century. A large fortress atop of the hill in the center of Jajce is from this period.
  • It is the place where former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was born, on the Second Session of AVNOJ, on November 29th, 1943.
