Krupa na Vrbasu

View on Krupa on a wintersday

Krupa na Vrbasu (Krupa on the Vrbas) is a small town some 25km south of Banja Luka in the Bosanska Krajina of Bosnia and Herzegovina, BiH. Krupa lies in a valley between canyons of the Vrbas-river.

The Krupa itself is a small river which joins the Vrbas in the canyon. Krupa spreads itself out along the Krupa, and by the main road Jajce-Banja Luka.

The town is known for the "Krupa falls", the waterfalls in the town. Indeed the crystal clear waters racing down between the traditional watermill make a lovely sight. By the waterfalls you can even buy freshly ground wheat, or eat some trout at the trout farms just below.

After the waterfalls you can take a quick tour by the monastery - which is basically a church and a very new building where some priests live - an hike up to 'Greben', the old watchtowers, where you have a very scary and spectacular view over the Vrbas canyon and the town.

Also a hike to the source of the Krupa is not too challenging and always appreciated.

In Krupa, behind the school, towards the Vrbas, is Kamp Krupa, run by the Kanjon rafting club where in the summer is a camp-site.

When you're into rockclimbing, you can also go a few km north down the Vrbas, cross the river at the hanging bridge to climb up the stone bridge ('kameni most'), but you need to arrange you own climbing gear or contact Julien.
