Bijela Tabija / White Fortres

Bijela Tabija is located on the southeastern slopes of Sarajevo, hiding its history in its stone walls from the Middle Age to nowadays. It is little known about the time when this fortress was built. According to one opinion, it was created around 1550. Some historical sources say that this is a medieval fortress that once protected open settlement in its vicinity.
The walls of the fortress have been restored recently. The view from this place on all sides is really beautiful.
More photos of this fortress I posted on my blog in March of this year.

Stunning pictures of the mountains and valleys. I love how the towns are tucked into the hillsides. Fascinating fortress with such an unknown history. Great job Meda.

Beautiful pictures, Meda. I particularly like the shot of the flock of birds in flight. The first shot of the fortress is awesome. In your capable hands,the village by the waterway makes such a memorable, idyllic photograph.
