There are many stories about how this city got its name. The most valid is the one that says that the city got its name because from that city you can look forward into the world. (Prozor – window)
When you look at the city from close spot called Lug, you cannot actually see the city because of a stone block that has little holes in it that remind of windows.
This is a small city that long time ago was a really important milestone of roads.
It was first mentioned 11th of august, 1336.
Threw the history of course, it was occupied plenty of times, has been in different wars, and it is still here, and brings the attention of a lot of people.
You’ve noticed that the city has two words in the name, and I have explained one word.
Now I’m going to explain the other one, or what does it stand for, and which part.
People of this place are living next to the river Rama that is nowadays Lake Rama.
Name Rama was always considered as the name of the river and the parts beside the river.
After the river was turned into artificial lake, that lake was border between lower and upper Rama.
Lake is really gorgeous, has the surface of 1500 hectares, and the biggest depth is 95 meters.
Lake has a lot of springs, that are not just on surface, there are springs underneath the surface, and that makes this lake even more interesting. That lake is limited by the mountain crown, but that makes it even more beautiful. Water is really clean, good for some swimming with your friends, and having a barbecue near that stunning lake.
What can be more beautiful than that?
I can’t think of anything. J
