    Travnik medieval fortess with its imposing structure still dominates the horizon. It defended the city from invaders for centuries. It is the best preserved and most beautiful Bosnian medieval fort built at the turn of the 14th in 15th century.
    Bosnian best writer Mehmed Meša Selimović has written his novel "Tvrđava" placing the action of the novel in this fortress in the time of the Ottoman rule, based on the tragedy in his own family during the ex-YU regime.

    Plava Voda, Blue Water, Travnik, BAH
    3 more images

    "Travnik" is located near the geographic center of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    The river "Lasva" passes through the city, flowing from west to east before joining Bosna river. On hot days, a lunch at the Plava Voda (Blue Water) allows visitors to cool off, relax, and enjoy a nice meal.

    You can walk along the river to get the fresh breath of the nature ... :)

    Ruined Ottoman Fortress

    by travelbug102 Written Sep 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A great place to view the city's minarets or the imposing mountains nearby. When I visited there was an enthusiastic student working at the entrance of the fortress who gave me a 10 minute history lesson for 5KM. Sadly, I didn't take notes and can't remember much.

    The covered bazar underneath the mosque building is intended to support the mosque financially. The butiks here mainly serve the daily needs of the locals since there are still few tourists take the time to visit this town.
