“Stunningly beautiful river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Whether it is as the wide green-hued river in the city, lined by overhanging trees, or the fast-flowing rafters' paradise, the verbas river in Banja Luka is stunning. The gorge that has been cut by the river outside the town is impressive and makes for a great drive. In the summer, there are plenty of restaurants along the river, as well as places to fish for trout.

“Natural and interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

The river itself is gorgeous and amazing. It is not perfectly safe for swimming because some parts of river are dangerous or polluted, but they are marked by sign so you don't need to worry about that. I also recommend visiting an old castle named Kastel near Vrbas. It is located in the city center and easy-to-find. Bad thing about it now, is that many parts of castle are closed for visitors because they're too dangerous. No one is working on reconstuction that stopped about 10 years ago. Despite all that, it's still good for visiting. There are park and a restaurant and also an open concert area where lots of concerts all held all year.

“Picturesque Wild Fast Flowing River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Even though the weather was wet the river is unbelievable in its power and natural beauty. It was great to dine on the River and walk and drive along its banks. The power of the River is untamed.

Great, clean, wild river with lots of places to sit, relax and even swim...Also, lot of open bars by the river to have a drink and enjoy the view...In the summer, best way to refresh is by the Vrbas river
