Let’s talk about mountains.

Maglić is the highest if not the highest mountain in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and one of the most beautiful mountains of Montenegro. One part of the massif of the nebula is located on the side of Bosnia and Herzegovina, while the other part of the territory is in  Montenegro. The highest point of Maglić has two peaks, Bosnian Maglić (2386 m) on the top side of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegros Maglić (2388 m) on the side of Montenegro, which is 2 meters above the top of the bosnian side. Unofficially, the honor of the highest peak of the mountain Maglić belongs to bosnian part of the mountain Bosnian Maglić (2386 m). The part of the mountain that is located in Montenegro is decorated with incredible beauty of Trnovačko Lake, one of the most beautiful in Montenegro.

Maglić massif is located about 20 km southwest of town Foča  close to the border with Montenegro. On the Montenegro’s side, the nearest place to Maglić is city Mratinje. The mountain is in the north and west and it is limited by Sutjeska River, in the southwest is mountain Volujak, in the east the river Drina and Piva and in the south Mratinjski bay.

Base and slopes are rich with water, but not plateau. There is a source of Dragos Sedlu (directly below the road) – near the monument of Nurija Pozderrac (war hero from World War II). There are sources in Rujevac that dry up in late summer. The most abundant is the source of the Emperor’s Dol that never dries up.

There are no permanent settlements on the mountain. Before the war, during the summer, many livestock producers are coming with their flocks of sheep to the plateau, but now (after the war)maybe there is no sheeps.

 

Well guys in this post we bring you story about beautiful bosnian city, Tuzla.

The settlement of Tuzla has always been closely tied to its salt resources. It goes from Greece, when Greeks were aware of the region’s salt.  Tuzla received its name much later. The present-day name is derived from the Turkish word Tuz, meaning salt. The first Ottoman document recording the exploitation of Tuzla’s saltwater springs dates from 1548.

When the Ottomans came in 1460, production increased fivefold and the settlement greatly gained in importance. Due to vast reforms in the 17th-century Ottoman administration, a freer development of the town economy occurred. With the introduction of modern crafts, Tuzla developed into the administrative centre of the Zvornik sandzak and became an important communications, military, trade and cultural centre in northeast Bosnia.

In the end of Ottoman’s rule Tuzla had approximately 5,000 inhabitants, making it one of the largest towns in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Many buildings from Ottoman times remain in Tuzla. Turalibeg’s Mosque, with a typical stone minaret, was built in the 16th century and still stands today. The Austro-Hungarians introduced more modern methods for salt and coal exploitation, and Tuzla became an integral part of the empire’s economy. The city continued to play an important economic role in Yugoslavia.

City is the economic, scientific, cultural, educational, health and tourist centre of northeast Bosnia.

Jungle, or literally the old forest, is called the the forest on wich man didn’t had influence, forests that have developed since its inception completely in natural way. Although,throughout history,  we have estroyed many, today these natural jewels are placed under strict protection, and one of the last examples is in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the National Park Sutjeska – named Perućica: One of the last surviving primeval forest in Europe.

Sutjeska National Park is the largest and oldest national park in Bosnia and Herzegovina and it was founded in 1962. Besides Perućica, it is the Maglič, the highest mountain peak in the country, 2,386 meters high.

According to scientists at the University of Yale, Perućica offers a unique study on the role of forest in the global carbon cycle, considering that she is one of the last virgin forest in a modern Europe, which makes it a perfect natural laboratory.

Because of its beauty and richness, in 1952 rainforest was declared strictly protected part of the nature that is exclusively used for scientific and educational purposes, and in 1954 is placed under state protection as a natural reserve.

Perućica is a true natural treasure, one of the last preserved in Europe. As the forest is very dense, in some areas is even impassable, and protected, and visits are allowed only by prior arrangement and a guide from the National Park Sutjeska.

In the southwestern no-man’s land of Herzegovina is the stunning valley of Popovo Polje. Vjeternica (which means ‘wind cave’) is the largest cave in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the warmer parts of the year a cold air blows from its entrance.  On the rocks at the entrance to the cave there are two carved stones, typical for Medieval tombstones in the region. In a scientific sense, Vjetrenica has been the site of many different forms of research, which may be traced back to the 16th century.

The ancient karst field is a minute piece of what is the one of the world’s largest karst field that stretches all the way into Croatia and Slovenia. Near the small town of Ravno and the medieval orthodox monastery of Zavala is the largest cave system discovered in Bosnia and Herzegovina – Vjetrenica Caves. This extensive cave system has in total over 6 kilometres of passages. The stunning main passage stretches on 2,50 kilometers.Amongst the many archaeological discoveries are the ancient cave bears and leopards, cave drawings that are estimated to be over 10,000 years old. The Cave is also home to many small lakes and endemic types of shellfish only found in deep underground aquifer systems.
Vjetrenica is now on the list for UNESCO protected areasin Bosnia and Herzegovina. The cave has recently been re-opened after extensive research and improvements to the infrastructure. Well marked road signs are visible throughout the main Popovo Polje road from Stolac to Trebinje and from the main coastal road in Croatia towards Ravno.
