Travnik forteress is worth visiting, the view is superb and the small museum gives some interesting insights. We didn't really appreciate the over-crowded, plastic commercial river walk, but we can recommend a walk downtown in the evening when it is car-free and local people sit...More

The view here is wonderful with all the green, the etnographic museum inside is inadequate but the fortress itself is wonderful. I think you should visit this place if you want to capture good photos of the city and its nature.

This fort is located in Travnik just on the way to Sarajevo. It was an easy climb up, but still, be mindful of your steps as the path is stony. Once you reach the top, the amazing view will definitely take your breath away. There...More

Just love the Ottoman Fort in Travnik on the way to Sarajevo, not too challenging a climb, though stony, and you get a terrific view of the town with distinctive Ottoman-style houses, minarets and the gorgeous countryside. The Ethnographic museum there had interesting artefacts including...More

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

Travnik's largely Ottoman fortress is similar to others in the country but well maintained with many intact buildings, mosque, ethnographic museum with some interesting displays of local traditional life and culture, and a nice craft centre with locals making and selling traditional crafts, including woven...More

We were staying in Hvar town and took the 30 min/27Kn to Stari Grad. It’s a smaller more sedate version of Hvar located at the head of a huge inlet or neutral harbour. A vert attractive town and it was great exploring the alley ways...More
