Was considered as a holy place for many cultures from Bronze Age until the middle ages. You really need to go there and see for yourself how beautiful the cave is, and you will understand why for them it was a holy place.

But, that’s not the reason why I chose this to be my topic.
There is a story that was told from generation to generation, and now I’m going to tell you. J

A long time ago, there was a group of people, sitting in front of the cave, and talking.
The cave was considered to have ghosts, so it was a courage just to sit in front of it.
As the evening came by, that’s how the dare came in talk. „Who has the courage to go inside the cave, get a bucket of water, and come out”?
No one answered at first, but then they heard a voice from distance. It was a pretty girl in a long white dress.
„ I will do it“- she said.
And, she came inside.
She got to the well, got a bucket of water and wanted to go outside.
But, here dress was stuck, she really got scared because of the stories, her heart broke and she died.
After a while, they started calling her, hoping that she will answer, but she did not.
No one dared to go inside, especially after this.
They found her in the morning, lying on the floor, and the bucket with water beside her.
So they buried her in the cave, wooden board on top, with no name, because no one knew her.
Next day when they came inside again, they saw her grave, but it wasn’t wooden anymore, it was stone.
Everyone believed it was stone, because her heart now is like stone.

Do you believe it?

Picture is worth a thousand words, right?

This beautiful place has 497hectares, that’s why I think it is the best to make it a day trip, not just a few hours, because definitely, that’s not enough.

You can see so many caves, nature, and historical things you cannot even imagine.
Is it enough for me to say that they found some tools for cultivation stones, from the cave men?
Yeah, I think it is as well.
You can ride a bike there, ride a horse, go for a walk in nature, you can try out mountain climbing.
Nature lovers, you hear that?
Summer is the best time of the year for this.
When you are enough of the cities, buildings, noise and so on, pack your bags and just come here.
It is going to bring you inner peace, immediately.
Besides having a rich offer for visitors, it’s main attraction is the Bijambarska cave, which is very rich in cave jewelry (stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, big baths, pillars …), which is close to 400 meters open for visitors. It consists of four corridors, the last of which is the largest and is called the “concert hall”.

The central Bijambare cave is a special geological reserve, while Upper Bijambarska cave is a paleontological monument of nature. In this area there are eight caves in total.

In addition to these attractions, in Bijambara area there is also the “Mramorje” tombstone necropolis, a protected historical site, a precious testimony to the continuity of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

And bring to the side all that, at some point of walking you are going to get hungry.

Not to worry for that because you have restaurants, coffee shops and a store. So you have everything inside that you need. J
I can guarantee that this is going to be your next choice, so enjoy it.

 

Ok guys, while we are mentioning so many beautiful cities, it definitely wouldn’t be fair if we wouldn’t mention this city.
Earliest traces of life in that area were from 2000 b.n.e.
Biggest prehistoric bastions are “Velika Gradina” “Mala Gradina” and “Kasalov Gradac”

It has a great vibe to it tho. J

Moving on further, you will have to agree with me after the pictures, that the city itself is pretty amazing.
They have bastions from bronze and Iron Age.
Illyrians lived there for a long time, as you can see in some points in the city.
But, Romans concurred Illyrians, and they held the place for good 456years.

In the 19th century, series of capital buildings were built, so nowadays they give city Livno really characteristic look.

But, that is not only thing that is interesting about this city.
Take to the side the bastions, buildings, museums and everything, and take a closer look to the nature.

See this?
These are the wild horses that you can see in the fields near Livno.
These beautiful horses are running through the fields every day, and it is really stunning to see.
We are still not done with this city. J

Let’s make sure that nature lovers really like this city, and we assure you that you will.
Largest artificial lake in Bosnia and Herzegovina is actually in Livno.
It is called “Buško jezero.”

And it is really beautiful, right? Its surface is 55, 8 square kilometers.
It has really nice beach, and lovely view.
Now, let’s put on some finishing touches on this blog. J
The one thing that you need to do when you come to Livno is their cheese.
They are known by it, and it is actually called “Livanjski sir” (sir-cheese)

Locals always say that if you didn’t try their cheese, you haven’t been in their city.
So, after all this sightseeing and walking, come to the store and by some local cheese for dinner. J

Once upon a time…

There was a beautiful fortress, and inside of it, the palace was built for kings. Later on buildings spread around and that’s when fortress became a town. It wasn’t just a town, it was the capital town of Independent Kingdom of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
So many wars have happened, but none of them could destroy a beauty like that.
So many people have tried and tried, but failed.
It is still there, and it is going to be further on. In its beauty everyone falls in love.

Fell in love with it already?     Yeaaaah, so have I.

The beauty of its fortress is not the main thing.
Among all the other things, I’m going to name just two of them. It was the hardest decision.

Lake Pliva. Just stop and look at it. J
I can already see myself swimming there, looking at the beautiful nature, and enjoying the sun.
Aaa, what a peaceful place.

And last, but the main thing is, waterfall.
It is the only town in Europe that has waterfall in the very own center.
Yeah, you heard it right. Right in the center.
