It is possible to walk around the top of the fortress (inside the walls) and there is what appears to be a dungeon inside an interior building. Other than this there isn't a great deal to see other than the views of the surrounding countryside....More

I am a person who loves the fortress. So the fort in Jajce was obliged on the list to visit. The input costs 2KM. The fortress is beautiful but nothing special. But view it takes breath away. From the walls of the fort, you can...More

The fortress itself was ok. The ramparts are still extremely well intact. You do get a great sense of what the place must have been like centuries ago. But the claim to fame of this sight is the 360 grand view from the ramparts of...More

This is a fairly typical Bosnia fortress so it is nothing very special in that regard but it is pretty large and has great views of town and the lovely, green, and heavily forested Jajce area. It has lush green grass inside and extensive walls...More

It's a must for everyone who visits Jajce - but except a few leaflets sold by the guard at entrance who charges the 2 KM ticket too, and a plate with texts in Bosnian and English, there is nothing else. One has to rely on...More

Capital fortress in the city of Jajce (the city itself is based on old foundations dating back to Chalcolithic period). Built to withstand siege and endure, based on two rivers and a rocky hill, it served as the pinnacle of the Bosnian Dukes power. As...More

Well preserved and reconstructed. The walk to the top is interesting and shows the 360 degree encirclement of the area. Some houses are within the fortress

A lot of climbing needed but it is understandable beacuse it is a fort. Climbing is worth the sweat because of the view you get to see when you're all the way up. Surrounding hills and mountains are just to die for. The fort itself...More

Interesting place to visit, even though I found the view from the fortress in Travnik more beautiful. Jajce from the top is not so beautiful but still if you are there, you might as well visit it and relax since it is not so famous...More

This is a typical fort - with not many buildings or anything to explore, but it was fun wandering around and climbing the ramparts. I sat at the top and read and enjoyed the great views around the Jajce countryside.
