Kastel

Kastel

Tvrđava Kastel se nalazi u Banjoj Luci i predstavlja najstariji istorijski spomenik u ovom gradu.

 

Sagrađena je na lijevoj obali Vrbasa, između današnjeg Gradskog mosta i ušća rijeke Crkvene. U prošlosti Kastel je bio jako vojničko utvrđenje i štitio je kotlinu Vrbasa od neprijateljskih naleta, prije svega sa sjevera.

 

Tvrđava je sa svih strana opasana debelim kamenim zidovima, na kojima su podignute puškarnice i osmatračnice.

 

Na prostoru same tvrđave nađeno je dosta arheoloških tragova, iz antičkih vremena, preko slavenske nastambe do novijih kultura.

 

U Kastelu se nalazi rimski sarkofag nađen u Šargovcu, rimski miljokaz s nekadašnjeg puta Salona- Servitium.

 

Danas na mjestu gdje su se odigravale bitke, odrzavaju se brojni kulturni dogadjaji. Brojni su I koncerti I festivali koji se odrzavaju u tvrdjavi a neki od njih su postali dio manifestacionog turizma kao sto su Demo fest I Fresh Wave.


THIS WAS A SUPERB TOUR ... BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED, TAKING US THROUGH THE LONG HISTORY OF THE BANJA LUKA AND TRAVELLING FROM THE URBAN CITY TO THE 600 YEARS OLD MONASTERY. THE ACCOMMODATION WAS WONDERFUL AND THE FOOD/WINE EXPERIENCES TRULY MEMORABLE. ALEKSA IS NOT ONLY A FOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE BUT A WONDERFUL HOS AND HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR. THE GUIDES BOTH WENT TO GREAT LENGTHS TO PROVICE US WITH EXPERIENCES MUTCH BEYOND EXPECTATIONS AND I CANNOT THANK THEM ENOUGH.

THE COMBINATION OF THE NATURE, ARHITECTURE, THE FOOD AND WINE EXPERIENCES, THE SWIMMING IN OPEN SPA AND THE GENERALY RELAXED ATMOSPHERE MADE FOR A VERY ENJOYABLE TOUR. THERE WAS A HIGH ATTENTION TO DETAIL. OUR MAIN TOUR GUIDE WAS VERY ENTHUSIASTIC AND HIGHLY QUALIFIED. EXCELLENT.

MY EXPERIENCE, A WEEK-LONG TOUR OF BANJA LUKA, WAS SUPERB. WE SAW NOT ONLY THE USUAL TOURIST SITES, BUT SEVERAL THAT WERE CERTAINLY OFF THE BEATEN TRACK. THE VISITS TO THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART AND THE MEDIEVAL MONASTERY WERE FASCINATING. THE ORGANIZATION OF THE TOUR AND THE ACCOMMODATIONS WERE EXCELLENT AND THE MEALS, SUPERB. OUR GUIDE WAS ENORMOUSLY KNOWLEDGEABLE, DID WONDERFUL JOB OF SHARING THEIR KNOWLEDGE, AND WERE CHARMING COMPANIONS.
