Bihać, BiH

My next card comes from the not so far-away Bosnia and Herzegovina.

And this is my first card from there which shows the town of Bihać.
On the card you can see the Captain's Tower House, a remnant of the Old Bihać Fortress, today a part of the Una-Sana Canton Museum, while in front of it you can see the church tower, the only thing it remained from it after the WWII.
I havent been here but I remember this place often being mentioned in the history books at school, in the context of Tito and Avnoj and the anti-fascist resistance.
Yeah, it has to be war-related unfortunately =[

the stamp was issued in 2006 in a set of 6 definitives representing vegetables...and this is garlic :)
