Barely a fort anymore, this place is a remnant of one. Still it affords very nice views of the city; an excellent vantage point. It was built under the Ottomans but apparently didn’t gather much importance under it’s belt – because it’s not heavily advertised. It’s only time of significance during the year is the Ramadan, when the cannon at the fort is fired over the city at, letting people know that they can break their day’s fast. When you’re going up to the place, you’ll also come across a neatly preserved war cemetery – reminder of the Bosnian Civil War. An once you’re at the top, whip out that t camera and click away. This is also a cool place for a picnic if you feel like carrying your food all the way up here.
