REST YOUR SOUL AT SUTJESKA NATIONAL PARK
Sutjeska National Park is a beauty of the nature. Wherever you look, and wherever you step it is a new experience. There, in true nature, everyone can find what they are looking for: excitement caused by the jump of adrenaline while you climb to the top of Maglic and a rapturous calm on a mountain meadow, or by the clear mountain creek.
Starting in the morning we will depart Sarajevo for Sutjeska National Park, which is a two hour drive (110 kilometers (61 mi)). Sutjeska National Park is the largest and earliest declared national park in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Certainly, is the most beautiful and most diverse one. Also, it is characterized by exceptional beauty and a diversity of landscapes, ranging from mild valleys, dense forest complexes, mountain pastures to high mountain massifs found throughout the Park.
Battle of Sutjeska
Sutjeska National park is also famous as being the location of the Battle of the Sutjeska, which lasted from 15 May to 16 June 1943 during World War II. The Partisan were victorious over the German occupying forces in a battle. In the battle, the Partisans were led by the Supreme Headquarters of Yugoslavia by Marshal Josip Broz Tito who foiled the enemy’s plans. The Partisans were successful in breaking out of the encirclement even though they lost one third of their men. Several large Partisan’s Memorial stone monuments commemorate this event at the northern edge of the park at Tjentište.
It hosts one of the last two remaining primeval forests in Europe, called Perucica. In addition, beech trees tower over 60 meters high and endemic black pines stem from the rocky faces that protect the ancient forest. Furthermore, Skakavac waterfall can be seen from the look-out point – this seventy five meter plus waterfall is dwarfed by the massive blanket of green trees that cover the valley. The Sutjeska River has carved a stunning valley through the middle of the park and divides Zelengora (Green Peaks) Mountain from Maglic and Volujak Mountains. Also, on Zelengora Mountain there are eight glacial lakes popularly called “mountain eyes”.
After enjoying some of Bosnia’s best peaks around you we will have a tasty traditional lunch and then we head back to civilization.
