The site for the new Culture and Congress Centre at Banja Luka lies at the edge of the town today, as an anchor for the developing city to the East. The design brief emphasised a facility that would have the flexibility to accommodate multiple activities, events and functions within it.
The architecture of Bosnia and Herzegovina is largely influenced by four major periods where political and social changes influenced the creation of distinct cultural and architectural habits of the population. Each period made its influence felt and contributed to a greater diversity of cultures and architectural language in this region.
– Sarajevo, the “Olympic City” or “European Jerusalem”; the scientific, cultural, tourist and commercial center of Bosnia and Herzegovina
– Vratnik old town and Bijela Tabija fortress in Sarajevo
– Shrine of Our Lady of Međugorje, with Annual Youth Festival; the site of a Marian apparition and subsequent Catholic pilgrimage destination
– Mostar, the “City on Neretva” or “City of Sunshine”; the location of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Stari most and old-town Mostar
– Višegrad, location of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Mehmed Paša Sokolović Bridge
– Banja Luka, the “Green City”, with sights such as the Kastel fortress and Ferhadija mosque
– Bihać and the waterfalls of the river Una within Una National Park
– Jajce, city of the Bosnian kings and the place where Yugoslavia was founded, Pliva lakes and waterfall
– Prijedor, featuring its Old City Mosque, Kozara National Park and, at Mrakovica, Bosnia’s largest World War II monument
