Favorite thing: Banja Luka is one of center of art in country. There is Academy of Art within University of Banja Luka but also many other relevant institution, organisation and interesting free artists and art peaces.

Within city you can find many sculptures, monuments and graphite. Banja Luka was inspiration and despite all odds still one of few places within country there is art part of everyday life and even part of its touristic offers.

In Petar Kocic park, in front of Museum of Republika Srpska and in front of Museum of of contemporary art of Republika Srpska you can find many sculptures mostly from stone and some of them was gift from Artistic colony in Krupa na Vrbasu.

In 2014 Banja Luka gets its first mural. It call it Find Your Way to Fly. The mural is hyper-realism creation and its look like some strange objects taking off from the wall with help of balloons. It is 180 square meters big and it is work of two mural artists from region: Artez from Belgrade, Serbia and Lonac from Zagreb, Croatia.

On made of this mural it was spent 200 cans of paint.

The organizer of project is artist organization "Flaster". This gigantic art peace is dedicated to tragically died girl from Banja Luka Tamara Cvetkovic. She was one of pioneer of this type of art in Republika Srpska.

Fondest memory: Even art is not productive work in this country still here find its way to be part of everyday life.

I was especially looking forward to see first mural in Banja Luka. It is on wall one of building in Banja Luka suburb call Borik. It is in street Bulevar vojvode Živojina Mišica, across elementary school "Branko Ćopić". That street follow street from city center (where is Banski dvori, Palace of Republika Srpska and The Academy of Sciences and Arts of the Republika Srpska). If you coming from city center follow those buildings and go straight. Look on your right side and eventually you will notice the big mural on five-floor residential building.
First official mural in town
