Kastel fortress, Banja Luka, BiH

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Perhaps Banja Luka's most striking structure with its high walls and towers. But passing through the archway you are greeted with a wonderfully serene view of the Vrbas, along whose grassy banks locals idle away and read in bliss. Built by the Romans and then fortified again by the Ottomans, the fortress often hosts outdoor concerts but it is as a peaceful retreat from the bustle outside that gives it its real charm.


Možda najmarkantnija građevina s visokim zidinama i kulama u Banja Luci. Prolaskom kroz glavni ulaz dočeka vas pogled na čudesno mirnu rijeku Vrbas, na čijim se travnatim obalama mještani odmaraju i čitaju u blaženstvu. Tvrđavu su gradili Rimljani, a zatim je zaposjednuta od strane Otomanskog Carstva. Danas je često mjesto gdje se organizuju koncerti na otvorenom, a inače je bijeg u mirno utočište od gradske vreve dok mu miran tok Vrbasa daje pravi čar.
