gradske zindine

(city walls)


The best way to get your bearings is by making a tour of the still largely intact city walls, 25m high and stretching for some 2km, completely surrounding the old town. They are encrusted with towers and bastions, and it's impossible not to be struck by the remarkable size and state of preservation. Some parts date back to the tenth century, but most of the original construction was undertaken in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, with subsequent rebuildings and reinforcements carried out in the mid-fifteenth century when fear of the Ottoman expansion was at its height.
