Lake Kukavice
This small lake is a glacial lake with clear, unpolluted water. It is rich with life (fish, crayfish, birds and thousands of insects)
Stećci - Medieval Tombs
These stones are much more than just stones. They are tombs from the medieval ages and there are still some beautiful ones with carvings and symbols

This uncommon karst phenomena is truly one of the biggest gems of this region. Their beauty is unquestionable and can only be experience in person

Some decades ago, I was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina and I have spent the most of my life in living in Kupres, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I am obsessed with nature, history and culture and I love to spend most of my time outdoors. Travelling is also something that I adore and I have travelled through almost every country in Europe. However, recently I came to the conclusion that I much more enjoy discovering the region where I and my ancestors come from. This part of Europe is still pretty unknown to most people, and I would like to slowly change that fact. In my opinion this region has so much to offer to anyone who would like to escape from the hustle and bustle of big cities. It is also perfect for families with small children and all of those, who would love to try traditional dishes made from homegrown vegetables, fruits and local meat. I have graduated from the hotel and tourism high school and I have a Bachelor´s degree from the University of Graz: Transcultural Communications (German, English and Croatian). Additionally, for the last eight years I have been working in gastronomy. I am happy to meet new people from all the different parts of the globe and help them to experience the preserved nature of Bosnia and Herzegovina and also the historical and extremely diverse cultural background of the country.

It's important to know

Personal equipment you need for the tour

I recommend bringing some durable shoes and rather warm clothing because the nights in Kupres can be rather cold.
