This is one of the few remaining ecological pearls of Bosnia and Herzegovina located on the altitude of 1636 meters above sea level. The village is created mainly for the purpose of summer sheepherding on the slopes of Vranica mountain. It is abandoned during the winter when sheepherds go down to the Fojnica city and villages nearby.

Lake of calmness

Cristal clear water has glacial origin and it is home to California trouts and endemic family of amphibians named Rajzer's triton. Located on the high altitude the lake is a nice shelter from the heat of the long summer days. It is suitable for swimming and camping.
