Watermills in Jajce

It was the third day in Bosnia and I thought I could not fall in love wiht more than I already did. Boy was I wrong. We were on our way to Jajce. I had seen pictures of Jajce before because it is home to a beautiful waterfall located just in the center of the city. The waterfall is where the two rivers meet- the Pliva and the Vrbas. Another interesting fact is that the city of Jajce was the capital of the Bosnian kingdom during the 14th century.

Hidden from blind sight, you will find the beautiful watermills near the Pliva lake. The Pliva lake is located some 5km away from Jajce, and are home to a beautiful national monument, a beautiful ensemble of watermills. Yeah you read that right, watermills are a national monument.

This does not surprise me though because the first watermills to have been built here date all the way back to the Austro-Hungarian period. Each of the mills are almost identical and how amazing is that.

Once we arrived to the watermills, I was amazed by the beautiful nature that surrounded it. You basically had a beautiful park full of trees and the green grass. And then you look up and you can see 19 identical watermills that were renewed. Unfortunately, the watermills can not be used yet they are just there to show tourists and any visitor what a watermill looks like because after all the Bosnians used them throughout the years.
