BihaćAn emerald river and medieval fortresses.
Bosnia and Herzegovina’s northwestern city of Bihać is often called the “Switzerland of Bosnia” for its stunning location in the Una River valley. The city is bisected by the river, with the old Ottoman quarter on the east bank and the Austro-Hungarian section on the west. The city’s most famous landmark is the 16th-century bridge, Stari Most, which was destroyed during the Bosnian War but rebuilt in 2004. Bihać is also home to the impressive Bihać Fortress, which overlooks the city. The fortress is now a popular tourist attraction, as is the nearby Pliva Lakes nature reserve.
