Travnik – Bosnia’s Capital during Ottoman Rule

Travnik was the capital of the Ottoman Empire for 150 years. This is one of the reasons why this scenic  small town has so much to offer. The 16th century castle is the best place to get a view of  Travnik, the quaint houses, the 19 minarets, all embedded in gentle hills. Not many cities can pride themselves of having a  river starting its journey into the world from the very heart of town. It is also the home of Bosnia’s most famous writer, Ivo Andric. All in all, Travnik is a place where I felt at home, where I ate the best Ćevapčići and where I finally overdosed on this diet.
