Banja Luka Travel Guide: 258 reviews and 509 photos


Until Austro-Hungarian occupation, Banja Luka was a spitting image of a typical Muslim-Balkan type of town. Austro-Hungarian occupation brought noticeable changes, because many old buildings were removed, in order to make space for constructing the new ones. Todays Banja Luka, spreads over both banks of the Vrbas River, is the second biggest town in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Orthodox Church

The orthodox church of St. Ciril and Method is situated in the very heart of the town, a must see when visiting Banja Luka.

Thanks to VT member Traveeel, who lives in Banja Luka, I've learned it is not the church St. Ciril and Method, the name of the church is "Svete Trojice", the Holy Trinity.


Kneževo is small village nearby the town of Banja Luka in Bosnia. I was there this November of 2004 for a business trip. It was very cold but clear day after snowing.

    Spomenik se ne nalazi u centralnom parku u gradu. To je djelo Banjaluckog vajara Ahmeta Beslica.Postavljen je pocetkom 80 tih godina.Iz bokala je nekad tekla voda.

    The grilled lamb meat looked so inviting and tasty. I did not know that it was such a common dish in Bosnia.

    As well as mess about Nova Gradiška and Jaice that I said on your home page, you have done more mess! When I look for BL hotels, it is just pics you have done of some church! Why did you do that? And this page is not "New" if you didn't go after 3 years!

    I can't find Nova Gradiska. Is that the same that Bosanska Gradiska ? Interesting page for future visit.

    Kroz BL sam samo jednom prosao u busu. Ne znam kako stoje stvari sa obnovom dzamije? Fotke koje sam vidio bile su impresivne. Ovdje su mi najimpresivnije fotke i opisi Vrbasa i Plive.
