Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Take a rout with your car through the canyon and enjoy the views. There is at least one stop at the side of the road where you can park, jump out and take pictures. The views are really worth it.

I walked alongside the river at the center of Banja Luka, for as far as this was possible. At quite some points no walkway is foreseen close to the river. But nice, with some benches to take a rest and enjoy the sight.

Down by the Tvrdava Kastel (Castle Fortress), we sat on a bench by the river and watched the grey herons fish (there were also a couple guys fishing a bit further away, but they seemed far less successful than the herons), and it was very peaceful and lovely. There were other birds as well (mallards, grey wagtails, and more), which made for a nice little taste of nature right in the city.

I’ve been there for rock climbing and rafting tour on the river. The Nature is awesome. Unfortunately, we had low water line due to less rain in summer time.

The water you see flowing under the bridges of Banja Luka eventually ends up in the Black sea. The Vrbas river, 235 km in length, is a tributary to the Sava which flows into the Danube near Belgrade. Vrba means willow in English. Plenty of willow trees used to grow on the river banks especially near Banja Luka.

Pollution is an increasing problem as industries, agriculture and even sewers of villages and cities dump waste into the river. In 2014 a UNDP project made an inventory of the main polluters, but little has been done to take actual measures to stop it. Perhaps it explains why you do not see a lot of wildlife near and in the river. Near Banja Luka I saw ducks and herons. Fishermen are around to catch whatever is left of remaining fish stocks.

You definitely have to spend some time next to the river. Besides the walks within town there are beautiful canyons, waterfalls and hot springs within 10-20 minutes driving but hard to reach on public transportation, you better find a local operator on internet or do some research on the internet and rent a car.
