In the history of medieval Bosnia, only a few woman have left such a prominent mark as Catherine Vukcic Kosaca. She was born into the powerful House of Kosaca, supporters of the Bosnian church. Her father was a distinguished Bosnian aristocrat, Duke Stjepan Vukcic Kosaca. Her mother Jelena, daughter of Balsa III , came from a long line of royalty.
Once she turned twenty-one, and reached the marriage age, she became the focal point of Bosnian politics. This happened in 1443, when Stephen Tomas succeeded King Tvrtko II.
By marrying Stephen Tomas, Catherine became the Bosnian Queen. Politics played an important rule when she was getting married, but Catherine was faithful to her husband throughout her entire life. King Stephen died in July 1461, so her stepson Stephen Tomasevic ascended the throne, as was intended. Two years later, Ottoman sultan Mehmed the Conqueror and his army started marching towards Bosnia. This will mark the start of Catherine tragic destiny.

The tour was very interesting. The story about the queen Catherine was a story with a sad ending. I learned a lot about Bosnia medieval history in general. The service of the company was excellent and I would recommend them to anyone coming to Bosnia. Our guide Dzenana was very well prepared and known a lot about the subject. We ware so happy so we booked another tour with Dzenana the day after. She took us to Visegrad and it was another great trip with interesting subject to visit..
