    Before its flowing into Banja Luka the river is passing trough the nature masterpiece, the Canyon of Vrbas. It used to have very speed streams and lots of whirpools, I remember it when I was a kid.
    In the Vrbas River swiming and fishing is possible and allowed.

    Vrbas is very fast river. And it has beautiful green colour. During the summer time, lot of people is trying to refresh their selves in it. In some parts, it is very deep so boys are jumping in it from the city bridges.

    Kastel (Castle)

    by Prasnjavi Updated Mar 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Medieval Castle is one of Banja Luka’s main attractions. Located on the bank of Vrbas River, it gave specific charm to the city. Unfortunately, during the civil war 1992 – 1995, and after it, nothing was done on it to make it more beautiful.

    Banja Luka’s Orthodox Church,...

    by queensali Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Banja Luka’s Orthodox Church, the 'Holy Three' or 'Saborni Hram', was the pride of our city when it was built from 1925 to 1929. Officially sanctified in 1939, the cathedral was completely destroyed in 1941 by bombardment. A new church was built in replica but on a smaller scale, and in a different location.

    The recent war saw the end of Banja Luka's Muslim sites, and Fehredija, Europe's oldest mosque.
