Not far from Krupa on Vrbas, there is a Geological Formation – the so-called Stone Bridge, which is considered one of the most important natural heritage of the Banja Luka region. The stone bridge is known in folk tales as the Girl’s Bridge, because of the numerous legends that circulate and are associated with this geological formation. The Girl’s Bridge is famous for the legend of an unfortunate girl who jumped off it caused by unrequited love. Another reason why this geological formation has become known as a bridge is its physical appearance that resembles a bridge, because two rocks by force of nature merge and form a shape that resembles a bridge.
