Hear the marching footsteps of yesterday’s armies at Vinica's well-preserved defense structures. Despite its rather formidable exterior, the Vinica Fortress is today a welcoming place, perfect for reflecting on the sacrifices and struggles of this city’s past citizens.
In this culture-loving city, be sure to investigate a few interesting museums, including the Vinica City Museum, where culture vultures can get inspired. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, ask the staff about the guided tours, pick up a souvenir at the gift shop or just explore the relics of the past.
