ZIRA Hiking Tour Bjelašnica
Oh, what a beautiful day - perfect for an autumn hike in the beautiful Bjelašnica mountains. We went to fill our "engines" for the upcoming winter period starting our hike from Umoljani, passing through Gradina, and reaching Obalj (1890m). From the top, we could see the roofs of Lukomir, located above the deep canyon of the Rakitnica river. Known as "the last true Bosnian village", Lukomir feels like traveling back in time.
Due to its traditional architecture, rich history, and extended continuous population, Lukomir has been declared one of Europe's most long-term inhabited villages.
