Situated on the banks of the river Una in northwestern Bosnia and Herzegovina, at the foot of Plješevica and Grmeč mountains, Bihać and the surrounding area were settled in the prehistoric period by the Illyrian tribe Japodi.
In the following years, especially during the Turkish rule, the city played an important role as a throne city.
All that resulted in a rich historical legacy that can be seen all around Bihać.
First and the oldest landmark that stands out is the Captain's Tower, which, today, houses the Museum of Una-Sana Canton with the rare exhibits from the time of Japodi tribes.
Right next to it you'll find the famous mausoleum Kameno Turbe.
The only European Islamic oratory in the Gothic style is located in Bihać and is called Fethija Mosque.
There is also the Church of St. Anthony standing as one of three largest churches in Bosnia.
When you get bored with all the history, take a seat in one of the cafes or restaurants by the mesmerizing Una river, and just relax with the soothing sounds of the water.
