Full description
Bosnia was first mentioned as a state in the 10th century in the document titled "De Administrando Imperio" by Byzantine Emperor Constantine Porfirogenet. During the reign of King Tvrtko, Bosnia had the largest territory and many signs of the king's lifestyle can still be seen and are well preserved. The country's impressive architecture and natural beauty, including wild rivers and stunning landscapes, offer a glimpse into medieval life. The Old Fortress in Tesanj, the largest in the country, is a national treasure and a must-see for tourists. Another medieval site worth visiting is the Vranduk fortress, which has recently undergone restoration and is now one of Bosnia's best-preserved medieval fortresses. Visitors can explore the main castle, learn more about the history of the fortress, and enjoy refreshments at one of the local cafes. Today, Vranduk is still a walled medieval village that is inhabited.

Vranduk is a relatively small fortress with a museum (3 floors), the way to the fortress was also interesting. Archery was possible in the courtyard of the fortress. A cat joined us in front of the castle and accompanied us through the whole castle and the museum. The museum also has a pedigree of the Bosnian kings. Tešanj fortress is several times larger than Vranduk. The fortress has been expanded again and again and you have a very nice view from the fortress. This tour is also very interesting.

With a very knowledgeable guide, we visited the historic castles and fortresses of Bosnia. He told us about its history and about the places Vranduk, Tešanj and Maglaj. The whole trip had a friendly atmosphere and was a great experience for us.
