Nested at altitude of 1636m amazing glacier Prokoško Lake at Vranica mountain with its highest peak – Nadkrstac at 2112 m.a.s.l are ideal hiking destination for any true nature lover who seeks amazing scenery, untouched nature and understanding of Bosnian rural/nomad village life.
We’ll have to start our journey quite early from Sarajevo at 8 AM in aim reach town of Fojnica as early as possible.
At Fojnica, town historically known for healthy thermal waters and gold mining, we focus our visit to Franciscan Monastery dating some 650 years ago, where we learn and see the interesting story about “most likely, oldest written document on human rights – ahdnama” written some 550 years ago after Ottoman conquest of Bosnia in 1463.
Later we start our 16 km long, macadam and totally forested drive, with plentiful of small creeks crossing our way, to reach Prokoško Lake and get to see why this area is nicknamed for “Bosnian Swiss”.
Glacier made, Prokoško Lake is “nested” at 1636 m.a.s.l, with number of old, shingle covered, shepherd’s wooden huts – Katuni at its vicinity and amphitheatre of Vranica mountain behind, are definitely something not to miss for any nature lover during the trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina. No doubt about it.
