Jajce has an impressive line-up of cultural heritage sites and amazing nature to complement its rich history. Folks from Bosnia and Herzegovina tend to occasionally exaggerate about their towns having the biggest, best, first, and oldest cultural assets. Jajce has true bragging rights. Its 21-meter Pliva Falls are the only in the country to cascade from the town center. The Temple to Mithra, the god of the invincible sun from Roman times, is the only one of its kind in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The old St. John the Baptist Church, converted by the Ottomans to a mosque in the 16th century, has the only intact medieval bell tower (named St. Luke’s) on the continental Balkan Peninsula. The 15th century catacombs, built by the Bosnian royalty, are the only catacombs ever found on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Half the city is a protected national monument.
