Welcome to Central Bosnia
The heartland of the Bosnian kingdom brimming with history and beautiful forested landscapes
Whatever event comes to mind: The crowning of the Bosnian kings, the fall of the Bosnian kingdom and rise of the Ottomans, the founding of Yugoslavia – it happened here, in the centre of the heart shaped Bosnia and Herzegovina. Central Bosnia also offers beautiful sights and cities for visitors, such as Visoko, Travnik, Jajce, Zenica or hiking and biking on moutains such as Vlašić and around the Pliva lakes.
