Among many amazing and stunning sightseeing places, you absolutely have to visit waterfalls in Bosnia. These gems are leaving all people who vists them breathless. Bosnia, with these amazing waterfalls, is surely Paradise on Earth.
Here are top 5 must-see waterfalls in Bosnia and Herzegovina:
#1 ŠTRBAČKI BUK
Besides cave diving, rafting, hiking and mountain biking, when it comes to National Park Una, all spotlight goes to the most beautiful waterfall in this part of the world. This 24 m long beauty will leave you breathless. It’s surely a jaw-dropping view.
Štrbački buk waterfalls is near the villages of Kulen Vakuf and Orašac. This waterfall consist of several other waterfalls in the proximity. Natural waterfalls Štrbački buk constantly attracts nature lovers and many other tourist.
Even tho Štrbački buk is the most beautiful waterfall, I’d say that Kravice are the most popular. Many people who come to Bosnia often decide to see the other part of the country which is Herzegovina. One of the check points on Herzegovina tours and Mostar tours from Sarajevo is indeed Kravice waterfall. This large tufa cascade on the Trebižat River 25m high and 120m wide. It’s around 40 km south of Mostar and worth visiting.
Personally my favourite on the list of “5 must see waterfalls in Bosnia” is an amazing waterfall located in the city of Jajce. Jajce has enormously rich history from Roman Empire period to Bosnian Kingdom to Ottoman Empire to Austro-Hungarian Empire and even nowdays it was very important city.
Huge fortress takes away the spotlight but nonetheless, Jajce waterfall is mesmerizing. One of the check point on Jajce-Travnik tour from Sarajevo is this waterfall beauty. I highly recommend that you check it out.
Located only 12 km away from the capital city, this is favourite waterfall of Sarajevo citizens. Sakakavac is a natural phenomenon and it’s 98m high. This is second highest waterfall in the entire Europe. Surroundings of this waterfall is ideal for walking, running, very cute date in the nature, mountain biking or just enjoying in the nature. Many Sarajevo tours have this breathtaking waterfall on their list and I am sure every Sarajevo guide would be more than a glad to show you way to this natural waterfall.
#5 BLIHA FALLS
This beautiful waterfall, often called Blihin Skok by the locals, is located 14 km from the city of Sanski-Most, in northwestern Bosnia and Herzegovina. Water drops from 56m high cliff. Bliha waterfall is designated as natural monument since 1965.
