The Ethno Museum located in one of the historical monuments of the town (the first primary school) recently enriched its collections with a lithological, petrographic and mineralogical new section, presenting stones collected in a wide area around Jajce. The official presentation of the collection took place on Friday 23th of November and from now the visitors can visit it during the working days from 8 to 16 o’clock.
Jajce, made of stone, light and water, is a royal town and an open air museum, built on the confluence of two great rivers – the Pliva and the Vrbas. Around Jajce you can find the beautiful Great and Small Pliva lakes both equipped with water mills, which the local people call «mlinčići».
The most recognizable symbol of Jajce is its magnificent 17 meter high waterfall (situated at the place where the river Pliva flows into the river Vrbas). The waterfall is in the heart of the town, making Jajce one of the most unique town in the world.
In this town you’ll have the opportunity to see the remains of four great empires (Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian), three kingdoms (Bosnian, Hungarian and Yugoslavian) and of the three world monotheistic religions (Christianity, Judaism and Islam) along with a variety of architecture styles and living customs all developed and refined through the ages.
Its historical importance, its townscape value, its archeological remains and its natural beauty give to this city a special meaning.
