I was planning my trip to Bosnia, when I realized that I hadn’t seen much of Herzegovina and that this time around I should visit Herzegovina. A town a friend had told me I should someday visit is Stolac. I had never heard of Stolac before and honestly I was kind of hesitating weather to go and visit Stolac or not, I mean it is a city that I had never heard of before and it wasn’t on the regular tour guide sites or books. But I mean the prettiest things are always hidden, aren’t they?

I decided to do some research on Stolac. Stolac is situated in Herzegovina, in an area known as the Humina. According to the info I found online and pictures I had seen, Stolac was a beautiful city. So I added it on my list and by no time it was time for me to go to Bosnia.

Of course I had booked a tour and we had a tour guide in English. I had no idea that there had been settlements that have been dated a long 16,000 BCE. Only three kilometers west of Stolac are home an impressive stećak dating back all the way to the 15th century. These stećak tombstones are carved with epitaphs, detailed portraits of the deceased, and motifs such as grape vines, hunting scenes, and wild animals.

Stolac even though a small city, contains unique cultural and aesthetic values. Stolac’s historic core is truly one of a kind. It is full of culture and heritage from four empires: The Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian and three kingdoms Bosnian, Hungarian and Yugoslav. The historical core of Stolac is coherent and harmonious cultural-historical monument with individual properties grown together into one beautiful. Stolac has a beautiful old town and it has a beautiful fortress that you can visit.

Stolac is a city that I need to revisit because even though it is a small city it is full of life and soul.

The Bosnian Valley of Pyramids is one of the oldest man made constructions ever built on the planet. They are the only remaining pyramids on Earth that have drawn energy data and provide energy impact that raises the spiritual activities of human civilization – a prominent Russian researcher of pyramids Valery Uvarov said in Sarajevo.

The Valley of Pyramids is located in Visoko which was Bosnia’s capital during the Middle Ages, where you can find ruins of a medieval fortress is located atop Visočica hill. The fortress was built over an old Roman Empire observation post, which in turn was constructed over the ruins of an ancient settlement. Which dates the pyramids themselves as beyond ancient.

The Bosnian Valley of Pyramids play an important role in raising spiritual awareness. Located underneath the complex of the Bosnian Valley of Pyramids is the underground labyrinth Ravne. The labyrinth itself is complex and is tens of kilometers long. The air inside is fresh throughout the entirety of its length which is due to different ceiling heights that cause difference in air pressure and act as a natural fan. There is no negative radiation in the labyrinth and the atmosphere was tested and is clean of bacteria and viruses. There is a great deal left to be discovered and the archeological team working round the clock to uncover history can be seen daily on location working hard to discover and preserve such an ancient relic.
