Old Town of Jajce and Pliva Lake

Jajce has had more than its fair share of battles. The town changed hands several times before the independent Bosnian state was finally conquered when Jajce fortress was the last one to fall to the Ottoman invaders in 1528.
A spectacular medieval citadel is set on top of the hill in the middle of town. Hugging the old fortress are beautiful old Ottoman-style homes and rushing below them are the two beautiful 27 m waterfalls of Pliva River.

Pliva River region is located in the north-central part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The region is dominated by major rivers such as Pliva, Vrbas, and Janje.
For many hundreds of years this region was the ultimate stronghold of the Bosnian Kingdom. The castle in Jajce was the fortress of the last Bosnian king. The three largest communities in Pliva River region are Sipovo, Jezero, and Jajce. Sipovo is located near the source of Pliva River, Jezero is located near Pliva Lakes, and Jajce is located where Pliva River flows into Vrbas River. This intersection is the site of a spectacular waterfall that is 28 meters in height.
Pliva River plays vital environmental and economic development roles in this region of Bosnia. It is the single most important environmental feature of this region because it provides water to sustain human and wildlife populations; it forms a natural transport corridor through the mountains; it offers the best available sites for human settlement; it supports agricultural production; it has hydro-energy resources; and it offers a range of outdoor recreation resources. Pliva River provides the natural connection between three towns of Jajce, Jezero, and Sipovo.
