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.

Just under the fort home to stunningly beautiful spring 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.

Fantastic!!!

My husband and I had a wonderful time touring Jajce, Pliva Lakes, and Travnik! It was truly a unique experience. We had Saudin as our guide and he was excellent! He was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. If you’re in Sarajevo, and looking to get out of the city for the day, this tour is a great choice!!

Three fantastic tours

We took the tours to Srebrenica, Jacje and the half day tunnel tour.
We normally like travelling independently. I would strongly urge you to take trips in Bosnia and with Sarajevo Funky Tours.

There is plenty to see and I am not sure public buses go to all the places we covered in our tours. More than that though, having guides relate their personal experiences and increase our knowledge of the complexities of Balkan history and the impact on the people was very special indeed and not to be missed. All three guides, Ejub, Omer and Saudis were exceptional and went the extra mile to ensure we had good trips with as much information as we wanted.

Ema who organised our bookings welcomed us very warmly and was excellent at efficiently making the arrangements. We appreciated being picked up at our Airbnb flat rather than having to walk to a central point.

Tour prices are very reasonable considering how much ground we covered.

Overall we has thoroughly enjoyable and very enriching trips.
Bosnia Hercegovina is a gem of a country. Do visit.

Best Tour Company I’ve EVER Found!!

I was lucky enough to get to spend 2 and a half months in Sarajevo and was even luckier to find Sarajevo Funky Tours. I found them on a google search, they had really good reviews so I decided to walk in, talk to them and see what they had to offer. Ajla, Ema and Dada really took the time to go through all the tours with me and get to know me. That first day I must’ve spent at least an hour in the office hanging out with them, which was nice because I had just gotten to Sarajevo, was traveling alone and didn’t really know anyone. Over the next 2.5 months, with Sarajevo Funky Tours, I did the Siege of Sarajevo, Lukomir Nomad Village hiking tour, Belgrade to Sarajevo UNESCO, Jajce with Pliva Lakes and Travnik, Dubrovnik to Sarajevo, Sarajevo to Herzegovina Day Tour (so the Mostar tour twice basically) and of course the free Walking Tour with food tasting…twice! I got to know the Balkans well through Funky Tours. The tours were comfortable, safe, adventurous and full of photo ops. I’m a self-proclaimed photographer and I couldn’t take a bad picture in B&H, its a country with endless picturesque beauty. All the guides I spent time with were exceptional (Adnan “Gondzo”, Saudin, Taib, Ejub, Armina), they were all incredibly knowledgeable, intelligent, fun, approachable, hospitable and kind. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this company, nothing.
Double shout out to Gondzo, Ajla, Ema, Dada, I miss you already! Keep up the good work but don’t work too hard.
XOXO,
Dee

Jajce and Travnik with an amazing guide!

It was a day well spent visiting Jajce and Travnik with Arna, an absolutely wonderful guide. In addition to seeing all the beautiful sites (lakes, waterfalls, citadels and mosques) I also learned a lot about Yugoslavia and Bosnia during the drive. We made many stops along the way for snacks, coffee and lunch, and all the places were hidden gems which I probably would not have been able to find on my own.

It was also very easy communicating with Sarajevo Funky Tours. I found them to be flexible, prompt and very friendly. Highly recommended!
