Ski tour on the Jahorina up to the summit Ogorjelica at 1916m in foggy weather but otherwise wonderful snow conditions.
Without GPS support, thanks to my Garmin Fenix 6, we would probably not have reached the summit today.Greetings Eva and Roland

The Bosna (Serbian-Cyrillic Босна) is a river in Bosnia and Herzegovina and gave the historical region of Bosnia its name. It rises from a karst spring at the foot of the Igman mountain near the capital Sarajevo and flows into the Save at Šamac. The Bosna is 271 kilometers long from the source to the confluence with the Save. This makes it the third longest river in the country.The Bosna spring (Vrelo Bosne) near the Ilidža thermal baths is a well-known attraction, as here a relatively large river rises directly from the mountain and is not created by connecting smaller streams. The source is embedded in a park.Fiakers drive along the 3km long avenue, which is lined with tarpaulin. they are called here fijaker, a holdover from the Austro-Hungarian occupation between 1878 and 1918.We also visit the "Hotel Bosna" which has since been renamed Hotel "Austria", which is located in the spa town of Ilidža about ten kilometers outside of Sarajevo, where Austria-Hungary's heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie Duchess von Hohenberg, before the assassination attempt , had breakfast.Eva and Roland wish you a lot of fun reading and tasting

The lunar pyramid with its 190m is still higher than the Cheops pyramid in Egypt (147m). It was built from layers of molded sandstone and clay. The material comes from the area. The clay is used as a binding material for waterproofing and as a thermal insulation material.
The terrace-shaped architecture of the moon pyramid is something that makes it unique among all world pyramids.
Under the Bosnian lunar pyramid is a pool of water that is connected to the underground water of the dragon and sun pyramid.
(Excerpt from the brochure “Welcome to the Valley of the Bosnian Pyramids)When the sun goes down, the shadow of the pyramid of the sun falls on the pyramid of the moon.
The name of this pyramid was derived from this peculiarity. Pyramid of the moon.On October 20th each year, the lunar pyramid is 100% covered by the shadow of the solar pyramid. A fantastic spectacle of pyramid magic.Location: East of the pyramid of the sun. The moon pyramid also has a very unusual shape. The lunar pyramid is also heavily overgrown and overgrown over the millennia of tides. If you don't look closely, you can hardly tell them apart from the surrounding mountains. Here, too, clear signs of an intelligent architecture that is not yet comprehensible to us.
For example, through the unimaginably heavy machined sandstone slabs with a wavy surface, which were laid like a spiral around the moon pyramid.Conclusion:
For me as a layperson, the moon pyramid is not recognizable as such, the excavations are surrounded by a high barbed wire fence, there are several minefields around the moon pyramid, so extreme caution when leaving the paved path.With this in mind, have fun reading our report,

Jajce (German obsolete Jaitze) is a city and association municipality in the canton of Central Bosnia. It is located about 70 km south of Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Jajce was the seat of the kings of Bosnia before the conquest by the Ottoman Empire.Jajce is located in the center of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the territory of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The old town lies on a castle hill, which is bordered by the Pliva in the south and by the Vrbas in the east. To the southwest of the old town, the Pliva flows over a 20 m high waterfall into the Vrbas Gorge. The mostly forested mountains in the area rise up to 1400 m.Story:
Jajce was founded in 1396 by Hrvoje Vukčić Hrvatinić, Duke of Bosnia. The Duke, who came from Split, had a fortress built at the confluence of the Pliva and Vrbas rivers and named it Jajce. In the 15th century a town developed below the fortress. The Bosnian King Tvrtko II (1421–1444) made Jajce his royal seat. It gained not only political but also economic importance as the center of the Bosnian state and can be regarded as the “first capital of Bosnia”. This heyday ended in 1463, however. Stjepan Tomašević was crowned as the last Bosnian king by papal legate Nikola von Modruš, a Dalmatian humanist, in Jajce in November 1461, before he was captured by the Ottomans and executed in 1463. In the same year they took the city for the first time, but were repulsed by the Hungarians. Their king Matthias Corvinus established the "Banat Jajce" in 1464.From July 29, 1878, Austrian-Hungarian troops occupied Bosnia and Herzegovina in accordance with the resolutions of the Berlin Congress. Jajce itself was occupied on August 7th. Previously, there had been fighting in the area around the city.During the Second World War, Jajce was the scene of important political events due to its location in an unoccupied area. In the building of the former Sokol gymnastics club, the 2nd assembly of the Anti-Fascist People's Liberation Council (AVNOJ) met from November 21 to 29, 1943, at which historical resolutions were passed and the federalist concept for socialist Yugoslavia was developed (AVNOJ resolutions). Therefore, Jajce is considered the founding place of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.Landmarks:
Two great empires, the Ottoman and the Austro-Hungarian, which ruled this city from 1528 to 1918, shaped the city with their way of life and architectural styles. Many buildings of cultural and historical importance have been preserved from this time. Among the mosques, the most significant is the Esma Sultanija Mosque. There is also the Sinan Beg or Okić Mosque and the Dizdar or Women's Mosque.Jajce is also known for the Pliva waterfall and the medieval fortifications in the city center, the Pliva lakes, some well-preserved water mills and the pilgrimage site Podmilačje in the vicinity. The building in which the second AVNOJ assembly took place contains a museum with documents on the establishment of the socialist, communist Yugoslav state.The old town of Jajce has been a candidate for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2006, the decision is still pending.Eva and Roland wish you lots of fun exploring.

The Bjelašnica is a mountain range in central Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located southwest of Sarajevo, directly adjacent to the Igman. The highest peak of Bjelašnica reaches a height of 2067 meters, it is also called Bjelašnica.The name of the mountain comes from the Slavic root word bijel, which means "white".At the Olympic Winter Games in 1984, the men's alpine races were held on the Bjelašnica, the Winter Games were disappointing for Austria, only the downhill skier Jimmy Steiner won a bronze medal.Curious, the start of the 1984 Olympic downhill race in Bjelašnica had to be artificially extended in order to achieve the required length.

The Pyramid of the Sun is the highest of the Bosnian pyramids with a height of 270m and also higher than the pyramid of Giza. Excavations by Sam Osmanagich and a large team of volunteers revealed huge slabs of concrete that probably cover the whole pyramid. And measurements showed that a strong electromagnetic beam comes from the top of the pyramid.
We hiked the steep pyramid and looked at the excavations. Join us on our impressive tour.
January 1, 2021
In 2006, Sam Osmanagich discovered the Bosnian pyramids and a vast network of prehistoric tunnels near the city of Visoko in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Analyzes have shown that the tunnel system was created around 30,000 years ago, made of very hard concrete, as we do not know it today. About 5000 years ago the tunnels were filled in again from green areas unknown to us.
They have been exposed again since 2006 and it has been shown that the tunnel system connects the pyramids.
In this video we take you into the most interesting tunnels, which, in addition to their extraordinary construction, have other special features: Large ceramic blocks weighing tons into which quartz are incorporated and which build up a strong electromagnetic field, crystal clear water that has very high Bovis units and therefore has a healing effect on the body and last but not least the high level of negative ions in the air, which brings relief to many people with allergies and respiratory diseases.
Much here is inexplicable and yet very noticeable. We refueled and then went a round through the adjacent Ravne Park. Many places have been created here where you can meditate, recharge your batteries and recharge.Eva and Roland wish you a lot of fun hiking, tasting or just watching

Snowshoe hike on Jahorina, where the 1984 women's ski competitions at the Sarajevo Olympics were held.
The highest point is the Sjeništa with 1913 meters.
After the snowfall yesterday, we were greeted by a beautiful, deeply snow-covered landscape with wonderful powder🤗.
Finally, we strengthened ourselves with traditional Bosnian dishes.

With the saying "the early bird gets the worm", we started early today with the plan to experience a sunrise on the Visočica.
Since it is practically one of my favorite routes and I have already described it enough here on Komoot, I will not write a tour description today, but to note or rather supplement it, I have to add a few important things.The road will only be pushed as far as Sinanoviči, i.e. cleared of snow. I drove up the street anyway, but only with snow chains! You can only turn back again at the Puzimsko groblje, i.e. at the saddle. Had to wait two hours to go down because vehicles got stuck and blocked the road.Second, the path up to the Visočica peak is not recognizable due to the snow, please be careful, only climb if you know your way around, or with GPS support.If you have everything behind you and reached the summit, you will be rewarded with an incredible view of the distance. If you want to climb up at sunrise, consider that you need about 1 hour from the parking lot to the summit if there is snow.Otherwise I can only spoil you with photos and a video of my impressions.Roland wishes you a lot of fun hiking

After a lot of planning and research, I was able to do a long-awaited tour today, which of course I don't want to withhold from you.
This tour took me through the Rakitnica Canyon, across the gorge.
The tour itself is not long, but it is very demanding and requires a good level of physical fitness as well as a sure step and a head for heights.The Rakitnica River is one of the largest tributaries of the Neretva River. He created a 26 km long, inaccessible and incredibly beautiful gorge that stretches between the Bjelasnica and Visocica mountains southeast of Sarajevo. The Rakitnica River canyon is one of the deepest canyons in Europe. It's a naturally created space of magic, a really special space that is worth exploring.
Endemic specimens of flora and fauna can be found throughout the canyon. Bears, wolves, boars, martens and chamois have found refuge in this inaccessible gorge. 32 endemic plant species are also found in the Dinaric Alps. Crystal clear mountain water can be drunk along the entire length of the canyon.The starting point is at the junction towards Umoljani, directly at the bridge that leads over the Rakitnica. From there we start on the asphalt road towards Umoljani, a short time later we leave it and follow the marked path towards Vodenice (mills).On the slopes of Umoljani village, on the left, there are seven old mills at the Sedrenik spring, which rises from stone and fascinates all lovers of untouched nature.
We follow the marked path towards Lukomir, which first leads us high past the mills to a high plateau, where we have a fabulous view of the Rakitnica Canyon.The path then continues through a wonderful beech forest, always along the canyons.After we cross a small stream, we now go down into the gorge. The small, narrow path is quite well marked, but caution is advised. If you leave the path, you suddenly find yourself in front of a steep rock wall that goes straight down into the canyon, so be careful.At the lowest point in the canyon, we will reach a bridge to cross the Rakitnica, the bridge is called Masleša ćuprija - Masleša Bridge.The Masleša Bridge, which many mistakenly call the "Đurin Bridge" as Hajr (talent and a work that pleases God) on the Rakitnica River, was built by Mustafa Masleša from the village of Lukomir for his mother Temi.
In the past, this bridge in the upper canyon of the river was the main connection between the Bjelasnica villages Lukomir and Čuhovići with the villages on Visočica Tušili and Bobovica. The bridge can be reached by a path through the rocks of Stavnik from the village of Bobovica, from Lukomir via Strana, from Studeni Potok via Pružine and at low tide through the ravine of the Rakitnica river from Klisura. Most of the paths are overgrown and have no hiking signs.After we were able to easily cross the Rakitnica river over the bridge, it goes steeply up, towards Bobovica. The path is marked, leads up steep rock faces, but is manageable for anyone who is sure-footed and free from giddiness.Once in Bobovica, we follow the road to our starting point.With this in mind, I wish you a lot of fun while hiking and remain with best regards,
