And why would you want to spend your summer day here?

For a start, the air temperature is several degrees lower compared to the center of Sarajevo. If that’s not a reason enough to visit this ideal summer resort, you may be drawn to the idyllic image of swans swimming peacefully on the lakes or an idea of a carriage ride through beautiful nature as you are caressed by the breeze from the surrounding Igman Mountain.

Perućica

 

Located on the border of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro, within the Sutjeska National Park, Perućica is one of the two remaining rainforests in Europe. In the depths of the Perućica rainforest, often called the “lungs of Europe”, you will find the amazing Skakavac waterfall, which runs with nearly 100 meters of height. It is one of the largest waterfalls in the Balkans.

Perućica is a protected nature reserve, extremely rich in diverse flora and many endemic and rare species. It contains a large number of trees about 300 years old, and it is believed that the rainforest itself is about 20,000 years old.

Krupa na Vrbasu

 

Krupa na Vrbasu is a small town about 25 kilometers from Banja Luka and lies in a valley between the canyons of the Vrbas River.

Krupa is a small river that joins the Vrbas River in the canyon and spreads along with the town of Krupa and the main road Jajce-Banja Luka.

The crystal clear water that descends through the traditional mills and the falls of the Krupa make a truly enchanting sight.

In addition to the natural resources of Krupa, we recommend that you enrich your visit with significant cultural and historical values preserved by this small town.

After enjoying the waterfalls and springs of the river, head to the monastery of St. Elijah from 1289 or the wooden church dating from the 16th century. The exploration of Strika’s cave, as well as the remains of the medieval town of Greben, will also be worth your time.
