In the mid 15th century, the royal court moved in to Jajce, when a palace was built within the fortress.

Private Guided Tour of Travnik and Jajce from Sarajevo

This tour goes to Travnik City which, for many years, served as a capital of Bosnian Eyalet. Known as Viziers City in the Ottoman Empire, the Grand Vizier was the prime minister of the Ottoman sultan. There are 28 protected cultural and historic buildings in this area. The most important of them are: the medieval fortress built in the 15th century; Jeni mosque, which is the oldest building from the Ottoman period; Sulejmanija or Šarena mosque; Jezuit Grammar School and Elči Ibrahim-Pasha madrassa, the muslim school that still serves to students. What makes it special in the world are the two clock towers built in 18th century. It is the only city in Bosnia and Herzegovina with a sundial built in 1886.After visiting Travnik the tour continues on to Jajce, the capital of the independent medieval Kingdom of Bosnia: a city of stone, light and water. The royal castle was built on the banks of the rivers Pliva and Vrbas. The city with its towers, walls and fortress which surround the town are an interesting sight for everybody. The old city of Jajce is a candidate for listing as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This small space captures four empires at once: Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian; three kingdoms: Bosnian, Hungarian and Yugoslav; three world monotheistic religions: Christianity (Orthodoxy and Catholicism), Islam and Judaism, and different architectural styles. next stop is the symbol of the coexistence in Jajce, the Church of St. Mary or the Sultan Suleyman II Mosque. Today only walls remain of the building. At the northeast side is the tower of St. Luke. It has been built by the domestic masters. The bell tower of St. Luke represents the only surviving medieval tower in the continental part of Balkan. In 1892, these objects were declared a cultural heritage by the Austro-Hungarian government. Located a few kilometers away from Jajce are Pliva Lakes. These lakes offer many recreational opportunities: fishing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, playing volleyball, biking and walking. It was here that wooden watermills were built during the Middle Ages. You will see how water power was used in old times in order to produce seeds and flour for bread. Due to the historical, architectural, and geological value of the Pliva lakes and watermills, both were declared to be “National Monuments of Bosnia and Herzegovina” in 2009.
