Favorite thing: The source of the 207 km long Una river can be found in north eastern Croatia from where it flows through Bosnia and Herzegovina before it spills into the Sava river again in Croatia.
On its way it forms several time the border between the two countries. It also divides the city of Bihac, where the banks of the river, especially near the city park (Gradski park), invite for a stroll.

Mosques and cemeteries
Favorite thing: Apart from the Fethija Mosque (Victory Mosque), Bihac is home to several other mosques, which often have an Islamic cemetery on their grounds.
Just behind the Prekounje Mosque some old overgrown Muslim tombstones can be seen. The mosque stands at the street Bihackih branilaca, just a few 100 metres east of the bus station.
Another interesting site is the Harmani cemetery (Greblje Harmani) and the Harmanski Mosque, also known as IC-Hisar Mosque. The latter one was built in 1797, but destroyed several times. The last restorations took place in 2002.
The mosque and the cemetery are situated in the Harmani district of Bihac, just west of the city park (Gradski park).

The university library
Favorite thing: When I arrived in Bihac, after a long car trip, the first thing I saw, just in front of the parking area, was the university library.
It is a very new building, as many others in the city, made after the war.
Favorite thing: But many houses are unbelievably damaged by the war, but equipped with many accessories as satellite TV.
Favorite thing: If you just walk around the city, many new buildings will face to you.
They are mainly public or comercial buildings, as this bank.
Favorite thing: All over the city, the war's signs are still clearly evident.
I was astonished by the succession of new building and old damaged ones.
In this picture one damaged buiding near to the mosque.
Favorite thing: In all the city i saw only one building, really ruined, with cyrillic writings on the walls.
it's an optician shop in the city center.
New bars wherever
Favorite thing: There's a great number of new bars and pubs wherever in the city center and near the river.
they seem to say to you that the people want to forget and to start with a new life.
Kula - the Tower
Favorite thing: Kula was a part of the medieval defensive system, the rest of it have wanished during the past centuries.
Fondest memory: Used to be a prison, today this is a Museum
Favorite thing: The view on Una river which is floating in the middle of the town. There are numerous restaurants and cafes along both banks of the river and bathing resorts too.
