Jajce bills itself as Bosnia’s ‘Open Air Museum’, and boasts an impressive urban waterfall right in the town centre. The fortified Old Town climbs a steep rocky knoll to the powerful, ruined castle where Bosnia’s medieval kings were once crowned. And surrounding mountains, lakes and canyons make Jajce a potentially useful exploration base.


Individually, none of old Jajce’s attractions are major drawcards but together they offer a couple of rewarding hours’ exploration. Add in the surrounding lakes and canyons and you might want to stay for days.
