The River Vrbas is one of the few rivers in Bosnia and Herzegovina that carries a male name. It is assumed that the name was given by a white willow which is widespread in the lower regions of the river. Vrbas is one of the basic symbols of the city of Banja Luka. To the south, Vrbas created a canyon with a series of natural rarities. Vrbas Canyon consists of two canyons: the Tijesno Canyon (5km) and Podmilačje Canyon (8km). Rapids, waterfalls,beaches, surrounding rocks, and the richness of flora and fauna make this area special.

Due to the speed of Vrbas and its small depth and stone bottom in the urban area of Banja Luka a special boat was made called “Dajak”, a boat with a long, narrow and shallow gauze. Dajak was specially made piece of wood that pushes the boat, and the boat was named after that.
