Favorite thing: Bosnian official currency is Konvertibilna Marka , or just MARKA ... 1 marka is equal to 1,96 Euro . But you can use euro as well , evrywhere you want , so you mighy not need to change it .
If you look closely to the pic , you ll see two pairs of the same bills , but with different pictures on them. One pic is for the Republic of Srpska , and another is for Croatian -Muslim Federation... you can use them equally .
Bosnian Licence Plates
Favorite thing: You can not tell where the car is from if you look at the licence plates. There are two parts of Bosnia: Republic of Srpska and Croatian -Muslim federation. Official alphabet in Republic of Srpska is cyrillic and Latin alphabet in Federation. So the thing is that they are using ONLY the letters that look the same in cyrilllic and in latin alphabet for the licence plates .
Favorite thing: This is not exactly the FAVORITE thing , but it is deffinately IMPORTANT thig for people to see, and you can see it all over the town ... Almost on every building, damages ... from war.
Maybe it will heal in time , but maybe they should stay there as a reminder of what war really is The Destruction for all sides that take part in it ...
A view at Doboj
Favorite thing: I love towns panorama. The best view is from Gradina fortress.
Fondest memory: I spend whole life here so everything that I wrote would be a very subjective, of course.
It lots a great memories with family and fiends.
I vent to school here and now I work in one of them.
I like a effort that some people put in the things or people that cherish.
Even a sad moments had a breaking trough insight.
What to tell... it is a home.

Rugby in Doboj
Favorite thing: On Saturday, 19th October 2013 in Doboj was play first rugby match ever held in Doboj. It was 6th match of Championship of Republika Srpska. Match Rugby League White Rabibits (Banja Luka) vs Rudar (Stanari, near Doboj) was held on addition field of FK Sloga (City football Stadion "Luke").
Finally score was 30:4 for Rabbits. Congratulation to Banja Luka team on good play (even I root for our neighbors)!
I know little about this sport and I expected to see a good and rough game and that was exactly happens.
Fondest memory: It was promotion of new sport in Doboj, but it was not many observers here. Still, some of visitors was very interesting for sport including some children and I hope I will have opportunity to write tip "Doboj play Rugby" very soon!
