Banja Luka (-shbâːɳaː lǔːkapron) or sometimes Banjaluka (-shbaɲalǔːka), in Serbian Cyrillic: Бања Лука, or Бањалука, is the second largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the administrative capital of the Bosnian-Serb Republika Srpska entity. Traditionally it has been the center of the Bosanska Krajina region, located in the north-western part of the country. It is home of the University of Banja Luka, as well as numerous state and entity institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The city lies on the Vrbas river and is well known in the countries of the Former Yugoslavia for being full of tree-lined avenues, boulevards, gardens, and parks.
