Banja Luka

My first card from Bosnia and Herzegovina comes from Sonja, a travel agent living in Banja Luka, and who was kind enough to tell me all about the different views on this card. At the top left can be seen a monument from World War II, and in the top center is the city’s Orthodox church. The large view at the bottom is the River Vrbas, which seems to be missing some vowels.

    I remember this place unfortunately being in the headlines a lot as Serbia committed mass atrocities against the people of this city in its invasion of Bosnia. Serbia also expelled all non-Serbs and demolished 16 of the city’s mosques.

    I am guessing that the Orthodox church in the postcard still stands.
