The view of the city is quite spectacular. There was a small exhibition in one of the towers. The castle is well-kept. There's also a bar at the bottom.

Approaching Travnik from the south, the first thing you see is the fort perched on the mountain side above the old town. It is well worth a visit, not least for the view of Travnik from the ramparts. Anyone visiting this town is missing half...More
