Tour Overview

Visiting Travnik, Jajce and Pliva Lakes as part of the Central Bosnia on a full day tour from Sarajevo is unique way to experience this part of Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Jajce city which truly bears epithet “royal” as it has been the residence of the Bosnian Kings. It is World’s only city with natural waterfall in the city centre and birthplace of Yugoslavia, and in the same time in 1943 Jajce is birthplace of modern Yugoslavia.

Pliva Mills and Pliva Lakes are great nature add-on for this tour, and will make you appreciate beauty of Bosnia and Herzegovina even more.

We also do not forget to pay visit to Travnik – Ottoman time vizier’s town, Nobel prize winner Ivo Andrić birthplace, stunning Plava Voda springs and old Ottoman fortress.

So, why not taking one day trip with us and discover unique hidden gem in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

What to Expect
STOP 1: Jajce (1h)

Morning ride will take us through interesting regions of central Bosnia, passing by Visoko town and valley of Bosnian Pyramids (can be arranged as a stop, but due to time limits on this day is recommended in our 2day package), and then along the flows of river Bosna and Lasva and especially beautiful flow and canyon of Vrbas until, nearly three hours later we arrive to Jajce.

Once there, first thing we go and see is one of the World’s most beautiful waterfalls, and the only one in the World placed in the city center, famous Pliva Waterfalls – spot where Pliva river ends its flow and meets Vrbas is simply breathtaking.

After we bless our eyes and soul we good for a walking tour through Jajce. We visit Jajce Citadel (Fortress), the Museum of the Second Session of the National Liberation Army of Yugoslavia (AVNOJ), Medvjed Kula, the Tower of St. Luke, famous Catacombs – underground church, one of the World’s very few mosques named after woman – Mosque of Esma Sultanija, and much more. All followed with interesting stories.

Jajce Citadel is amazingly interesting place giving us great opportunity to see whole area around us and Jajce itself.

STOP 2: Pliva Lakes and Pliva Mills (1h)

After we have “tasted” Jajce for we go for the Lakes. In the vicinity of Jajce on Pliva river there are two lakes. Only five kilometre away we ll check up out Large and Small Pliva lake.

Whatever you prefer, walking around, kayaking or canoeing (in 1963. World and European Championship in kayaking and canoeing on still waters were held on Pliva lake), laying on the beaches, doing some swimming, even fishing or just photography – everything is only “desire” away 🙂

Very interesting part of the Pliva lakes story are Mills at small Pliva lake. Amongst people famously called “Mlinčići”, which once have been main promotional material for postcards and tourist potential of Great Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy. We check them up as well.

At Great Pliva Lake we usually make a break for lunch or drink having nice time for chatting and relaxing enjoying beautiful nature.

After Jajce and surroundings it is time to head back, but the day ain’t over yet.

STOP 3: Travnik, Ottoman Fort and Plava Voda Springs (1.30h)

On this trip very important part of the story which we do not miss is Travnik. Town rich with cultural and historical heritage.

Place where we check up one of the best preserved Ottoman forts in our country dating late XIV century, but present day look originating from Ottoman era.

Location just under the fort is home to stunningly beautiful springs of Plava Voda (“blue water”), place ideal for Bosnian coffee break.

It is very important to mention that Travnik is hometown to Bosnian Nobel Prize winner Ivo Andric and his most famous novel Bridge Over Drina.

We don’t forget and Coloured Mosque, both Clock Towers as Travnik is the only town in Bosnia with two of those, and very centre of Travnik carsija (marketplace). At some point perhaps, we get to taste World famous Travnik sheep cheese, and few more things.

After explorations of Travnik we head back to Sarajevo where we expect to be around 7 pm, but days can be longer as well.

Amazing Tour

We did two trips with Sarajevo Funky Tours of Jajce and Central Bosnia, and the Utopia of Yugoslavia tour. The tours were very well organised and gave us the opportunity to experience Bosnian culture and see some amazing places.

We were particularly impressed with their staff, Almir, Nazir and Ema, and look forward to doing more tours with their company in the future.

Amazing company with amazing tours!

Sarajevo Funky Tours is absolutely incredible. I ended up doing three tours with them, the Free Walking Tour, a day trip to Jajce and Travnik, and the War Siege tour. All three tours were wonderful.

Not only are the tours really interesting, but Sarajevo Funky Tours goes out of its way to ensure the comfort of its customers. All three tours I went on are incredible in their own way.

The free walking tour is more than just a walking tour as you get to try food and drink along the way. It is what every walking tour should be. The Siege tour was incredible because it really brings the war to life.

In part because of the incredible tours I went on, Sarajevo is now my favorite place in Eastern Europe. I hope I can get back there soon to do more tours with Sarajevo Funky Tours!

I did three tours with this agency: the siege tour, the tour to Mostar and the tour to the Pliva lakes.

Every one of the three guides was very nice, helpful, knowledged and educated. You were allowed to ask anything about the war or the country and there was no question that they couldn’t answer. They also have shared their personal stories how they and their families lived during the war.

The guide of the siege Tour was actually a solider during the siege of Sarajevo and has used the war tunel you will visit during the Tour daily to survive in the City. You will hear really impressive and emotional stories.

So you really get first Hand experiences and I appreciate that very much. Thanks again 🙂
