  1. I´m looking for old plans of the Central Bosnian city of JAJCE. There are no plans available in Vienna, Austria, and those in Sarajevo seem to be destroyed during the last war. Some Bosnians want to rebuild an old gate in Jajce and they need the plans dating back to the time of the Ottoman rule in Bosnia. Maybe you could give me an hint. I would appreciate that very much!!
