 The fortress of Jajce sits above the town at an altitude of 470m. It is located within the complex of the medieval city that dates back to the 13th century. The fortress, constructed over several centuries, encircles the architectural remains of a mid-15th century castle.

Located in the south-western side of the fortress is a portal with the royal coat of arms. This portal dates back to the time of Tvrtko II and King Stjepan Tomasevic, who moved the royal court to Jajce in 1421.

Defensive walls and bastions

The system of fortification and defensive walls were built in several phases. Two walls extend from the fortress, one to the north and one to the west of the medieval town. The Large, Small and Samic’s bastions can be found on the north facing walls, and the Travnik and Banja Luka gatehouses provide entrances to the city.

The clock tower

The clock tower was once the medieval guard tower. Opposite it is the Fethija’s Mosque, which is also known as the Sultan Suleyman’s Mosque. From this mosque resonate the calls to prayer for citizens of the town.

Bear tower

Bear tower gets its name from its shape, strength and size. It is located in the western wall of the medieval city and is the only round tower found in Jajce.

Jajce…what a pleasant surprise!

MoniaSurely you happened to visit new places using the fact that you have a friend who lives over there and that it’s a pleasure to meet. It happened to me thousands of times and still keeps happening! For the 1° of May I decided to go and see Stephanie Ploquin, a volunteer who is doing her EVS in Jajce, a small city of Bosnia. After a longer travel than expected (I waited 4 hours to cross the border) I have finally arrived at destination. The first reaction I had visiting the city was: WOW! I never imagined that there were so many things to see and visit!
