Jajce

Bosnia & Herzegovina

Tourism in Bosnia and Herzegovina is a fast-growing sector making up an important part in the economy of the country.

Jajce

The old royal city that constituted the fortified capital of the Bosnian Kingdom. Offering beautiful countryside and many attractions to be visited (a medieval fortress with long defensive walls and a large citadel, catacombs, the Pliva waterfalls and lake, watermills), the whole area is geographically and historically interesting.

Jajce has had more than its fair share of battles. The town changed hands several times before the independent Bosnian state was finally conquered when the Jajce fortress was the last one to fall to the Ottoman invaders in 1528.

It seemed fitting after so many civilizations had settled and fought over this place that in 1943 the AVNOJ was signed and sealed here in one of the most historical moments of Bosnia's and Yugoslavia's history.

The second session of the Anti-Fascist Council of the National Liberation of Yugoslavia on November 29 ratified that Bosnia and Herzegovina, as an equal federal unit, would enter the Democratic Federal Yugoslavia. These resolutions outlined the future democratic and federal organization of the region. The outskirts of town are blessed with an abundance of water, which is probably what made it so attractive and practical as a settlement in earlier times.

The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina situated in the very heart of the country is one of the most interesting cities in Europe that connects eastern and western world as an excellent example of the city that has never lost its multiethnic character in spite of frequent historical turbulences.
