    Mosques and cemeteries

    Prekounje Mosque
    3 more images

    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).

    River Una

    River Una in Bihac
    1 more image

    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.

    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.

    bars

    Favorite thing: There's a great number of new bars and pubs wherever in the city center and near the river.
