Vrbas is one of the most beautiful rivers in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the main Banja Luka watercourse passing through its center. Vrbas boat is called “dayak“, a specific boat for the Vrbas river and the city of Banja Luka, as well as the gondola to Venice. The assumption is that the Vrbas boat appeared when the city of Banja Luka. Over the centuries, this unusual vessel has become a symbol of the city, leaving a trace in the culture of Banjaluka’s inhabitants. It has been used for commercial purposes, for the transport of goods from one side to another, both upstream or downstream. For cruising the route length of 15 kilometers is used, in the urban area of the city, where the Vrbas is characterized by shallow shores and perfect bottom for pushing a pole, after which the boat was named. Dayak boat is seven meters long and, to make it as easy as possible, is made of the high quality quercus oakdeal and regular rings. The most impressive details are the rudder and tip, which are made of one piece of wood. Tip is characteristic of a boat that is more distinct than the name. It looks like a mythical animal, gives tameness or aggression, artistic vision of master, so that each boat is decorated with different tip. Take advantage of a unique opportunity to introduce the city by the river Vrbas, with experienced Dayak operators.
Kastel Fortress is located in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The fortress is medieval but is situated on the site of previous fortifications going all the way back to Roman and even pre-Roman times. The fortress is relatively well-preserved, and is one of Banja Luka’s main attractions, situated on the left bank of the Vrbas river in the very center of town.
The urban legend in Banja Luka is that there is only one man for every seven women. Even if this is far from the truth, the women of this city take the competition very seriously.

But the casual look is not recommended if you want to mingle with the locals on the main pedestrian street, Gospodska, which literally translates to Gentlemen’s Street.
