Banja Luka is the second largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina after the capital Sarajevo and is the largest city of the Republika Srpska entity. City has an abundance of tree-line avenues, boulevards, gardens and parks. Have a relaxing lunch break in cafes and slasticarnas ‘cake cafes’. The city buds of vibrant nightlife so you can drink and dance away to their traditional folk music or other genres of music in bars and clubs around town.
The Vrbas River offers several sporting activities such as rafting and kayaking. By the river there is also the most beautiful cultural heritage site - the fortress Kastel. Hike up the Banj Brdo hill to the World War II memorial, enjoy a barbecue on the picnic grounds and enjoy breath-taking views of the city. It's a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. What Banja Luka does better than anywhere else? Ćevapčići (rolls of minced meat, grilled on coals, served in a round bread called lepinja with a side of raw onions). Do you know that Mc'Donalds opened in 2011 was closed shortly after due to loyalty of the locals to ćevapčići? We bet now you want to try it!
