Dear visitors and fellow citizens,
I am glad to welcome you at the official website of the City of Banja Luka. I believe that the website will be a useful source of information about Banja Luka, events in the city and everything else that our city has to offer. This portal is intended for citizens, entrepreneurs, investors, guests and others who want to know more about the city on the Vrbas River.
Banja Luka will continue to develop as an open and friendly city, a regional center whose aim is to develop its economy and entrepreneurship. Banja Luka is a pleasant place for living with a distinct lively appeal for its visitors. My wish is that our Banja Luka becomes a city where all generations will be offered good living conditions and opportunities for progress and prosperity. In order to achieve this, we need an articulated goal, realistic approach, commitment, energy and time.
In the following four-year mandate, I will try, hopefully with your assistance, to do what is best for our city. Hence, I am open for all your questions and initiatives that you can send via this website. Your feedback on any new project or a change that needs to be implemented will be very important to me as life is a stream and progress can’t be achieved without constant moving forwards and creating new ideas. We are open for cooperation, because this administration will, first and foremost, listen to the needs of its citizens, but also of those who want to invest and do business in Banja Luka. Decent and fair attitude should bring new energy to our city that will help us on our way to development.
