Venues of Basana 2018

One of the more important parts of each National Session is where it is held. So, let us present our venues, the first one during the Officials Training and the second one for Teambuilding. 

Castle Vranduk (on the left) was built in the 14th century and is located around 14 kilometers from Zenica. Its name means "to defend" and some even call it the "Gate of Bosnia" due to its position on the river Bosnia. It used as a seat for some Bosnian kings.
