Musej Kozare and Muzej Manjaca anyone?

by Drugness Online Now Dec 27, 2011 at 10:53 AM

Hello all
I was looking at some stuff on the net and found some pics posted of some military vehicles on display in BiH. The albums were called 'Muzej Kozare' and 'Muzej Manjaca' but i have no way of contacting the poster. These military displays look like they may be attached to army barracks. I think they are both near Banja Luka but not 100% on this.

I've posted a link below which may help

Does anyone know anything about these museums? I'd like to visit them myself if possible when i am in the area next year

Hope you guys can help, would be great!

DG

    Sticking my oar in (you know I've not yet been to Bosnia), with the help of translations by Chrome:

    Muzej Kozare:

    http://www.muzejkozareprijedor.com/

    is at 'Nikole Pašića bb, Prijedor, Republika Srpska 79101' I think the phone number is 052/211-334

    Can't find anything on Musej Manjaca, sorry, though Manjaca concentration camp was/is near Prijedor.

    Indeed the muzej will be in Prjedor, as this is the nearest big town to Kozara mnt, where in WWII was big battle bwtween Tito's partizans and German troups, and partizans won.
    If you are after batelfields from WWII BiH has them few..
    I will visit town of Jajce,which is very important for founding Socialist Yugoslavia.. There is very nice muzeum of AVNOJ you would like to visit...
    http://jajcetourism.com/en
    but tzhe town is situated on two lakes little and great Pivsko lake.. worth visiting form the castle, waterfals and history...
    I would also visit the NP and batellfield SUTJESKA niar Gacko on the way to Trebinje.
    sr.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%91...

    Also battle of Neretva, north of Mostar on Jablanica mountain..
    muzej-jablanica.com/Photos.h...
    you will like this as the battle is now taught in the military schools as brilliant strategy for beating cr@p of the Prince Eugine regiment (elite German special batallion)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064091/ the film was nominated for Oscar (Yul Brynner and the rest of Hollywood took part in it)
    All of this sites have links to the museums in the visinity...
    If you are military and history buf is worth your while...
    If you need more info drop me PM..
    Good luck!
