Travel to Trebinje

bosnia-herzegovina-jajce-waterfalls

Visit Jajce waterfall, Jajce 

 

Not many towns have a waterfall cascade directly in the center, so prepare to be wowed in Jajce. This historical town also has an ancient fortress perched on top of its charming streets, so there's plenty for you to see.

There's a lot to discover in Bosnia's second-largest city, but make sure to try canoeing in the basin of River Vrbas. Then, enjoy a peaceful cup of coffee in one of the riverside cafés.
