Museum of AVNOJ (antifascism)

DSC 0045The AVNOJ Museum is located in the southern part of Jajce. Here, on November 29th and 30th 1943, the second session of the Antifascist Council of National Liberation of Yugoslavia (AVNOJ) was held. Attended by 142 councillors, this gathering resulted in some of the most important decisions for the construction of Yugoslavia, which include declaring Yugoslavia a federal republic in which all nations are considered equal.

Today, the museum continues to remind people of the important political and historical agreement between Slovenia, Croatian, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro. Every year on November 29th and 30th, Jajce celebrates the "Days of AVNOJ" festival. For more information on the "Day's of AVNOJ", please contact us.

 Steam locomotive

The steam locomotive standing outside the AVNOJ Museum was produced in a factory in Krauss Linz in 1903. During the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it was used by Jajce’s "Elektrobosna" company.

The locomotive is named the "Little Partisan" because of the role it played during World War II transporting Croatian and Slovenian delegates to the Second Session of AVNOJ. At that time, it was the only steam locomotive operating in the free republic of Bihac.

“Little Partisan” was declared an historic monument during the 58th session of the Commission to Preserve National Monuments.

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!
