Orlovača cave and Jahorina mountain is a daily tour you will visit the most significant cave in Sarajevo surrounding area and Olympic mountain that hosted Olympic Games in Sarajevo in the year 1984.
Orlovača cave is 25 minutes away from Sarajevo. A short ride in the east direction will lead us to Orlovača cave. The cave is easy to reach and is only 18 kilometers from the center of Sarajevo. It is located on Orlovača Hill, near the village of Sumbulovac and is about a kilometer from the road that runs between Sarajevo and Zvornik.
Orlovača Cave is best known for its incredibly rich array of decorative cave formations (stalactites and stalagmites), as well as for the Mesolithic pottery shards that have been found here. The temperature inside the cave remains at a constant 9°C, and the area around the cave is perfect for walking, as well as for having picnics near the small stream that flows nearby.
Orlovača is unique for the remains of Cave Bears (Ursus spelaeus) that have been found here. These bears inhabited the surrounding hills more than 16,000 years ago. The cave is also home to bats.
The cavern has a total length of more than two and a half kilometers but the area reserved for tourists runs for only 560 meters and includes well-lit concrete paths. After Olovača cave tour we will proceed to Olympic mountain Jahorina. The guide will talk to you about the Olympic games and women discipline competition that was organized on this mountain.
