Bijambare Caves Exploration Tour - Private: Explore the wild Bosnia and relax your spirit in the heart of the untouched nature. Travel back in time and relive the ancient times of Bosnia at the Ethno Beys village.
Bijambare is located on the Nisici plane, some 35 km away from Sarajevo. Bijambare is known for the enchanting dense forest and the Bijambare (read biyambare) caves. The Bijambare caves are composed of several smaller caves, 3 of which are open to visitors. The first cave we will explore is the central Bijambare cave, this is also the most popular cave in the Bijambare park. This cave is more than 400 meters long. It has passageways which lead to four different chambers. These chambers are naturally decorated with stalactites which hang from the roof of the cave resembling large curtains. The floor of the cave is covered in stalagmites. The largest chamber, which is the fourth chamber, is known as the chamber of music, due to its acoustic traits. The central Bijambare cave is the home of various species such as bats and crickets.
Within these caves many fossils have been discovered, even going back to the ice age. These fossils include animal skeletons and paleolithic cave men remains. The lower Bijambare cave is located 100 meters away from the central bijambare cave. We will explore this cave too and walk further down the forest to the Ethno Beys village. This is an authentic Bosnian village. There you can see many different artifacts and exhibits common to the Bosnian traditions. The Ethno Beys village is built with original ancient techniques and materials which are 200 years old.
You will have the chance to travel back in time and relive the ancient life of Bosnia. We will also take some photos and have a traditional local meal in the traditional house in village.
