Jajce is a town and municipality in central Bosnia and Herzegovina, located in the Central Bosnia Canton of the Federation. It is on the crossroads between Banja Luka, Mrkonjić Grad and Donji Vakuf, on the confluence of the rivers Pliva and Vrbas.
Jajce is a town that was first built in the 14th century and which served as the capital of the independent Bosnian kingdom during its time. The town has gates as fortifications, as well as a castle which has walls which lead to the various gates around the town, to protect the castle. When the Bosnian kingdom fell to the Ottoman Empire in 1463 CE (867 AH), Jajce was taken by the Ottomans but was retaken the same year.
Eventually, in 1527 CE (933 AH), Jajce became the last Bosnian town to fall to Ottoman rule.
