Culture trip details.
We will introduce you to one of the most important forms of tourism in Banja Luka, which is culture. We visit the Sports Museum, which serves as a guardian of great sports successes from oblivion, but also as a reminder of the great importance and influence on young people from Banja Luka, many of whom became world-renowned athletes. After that, we will visit the legate of Ban Lazarević, the first Krajišnik at the head of the Vrbaska banovina, but also the last ban who lived in the building of today's Banski dvor. By visiting the Museum of the Republic of Srpska, you will learn that it has a rich collection with a total of 106,364 museum objects, and a library collection of about 14,300 books. Today, the museum offers visitors a renovated rich permanent exhibition that introduces visitors to the period from the distant past to the end of World War II. Did you know that Banjaluka has the only Theater Puppet Museum in Southeast Europe? The dolls that you will see when you visit the Museum are the works of the most famous European puppeteers, so they are exhibits of inestimable material and artistic value.
