Bihac - THE CITY OF ETERNAL YOUTH

A charming little town that sits on the banks of one of the beautiful rivers in my country.

Sightseeing and nature

Some of the locations are about half an hour driving from the city center but are definitely worth the drive.

Ibro :A series of mini islands on the river Una not too far away from the city, includes a restaurant and you can rent a modern tree house to spend the night. I would invite everyone to google more pictures you will not regret it.

Ibro :Technically not in Bihac but given that it is one of the most beautiful places in all of Croatia and only 20 kilometers from Bihac i have to include it. Make sure you have at least one day to spend there and some good walking shoes :D

Ibro :No need to say for which of the two this is. With numerous waterfalls it definitely is an adrenaline rush and one of the best ways to experience the river Una first hand. For me though, it was a bit too much adrenaline in this form.

Ibro :Fishing and fly fishing, there are many fishing districts on the river Una and this is just one of them with 7.5 kilometers in length and 900 meters designated for fly fishing.

Ibro :This is quite a popular place for cyclists, with beautiful canyon roads leading to this yet another small and charming city on the river Una about 30 kilometers from Bihac. Cycling is very popular in Bihac so you won't have trouble renting a bike.

Ibro :For the more adventurous people there is hiking on the Pljesevica mountain. With the highest peak at 1657 meters it can be a challenge for some. There are of course lower peaks so choose the one that works best for you. I have to say, there is a possibility to encounter a bear so just yell sometimes to scare it away(i'm not kidding).

Scroll down for food please.

In one of the restaurants you can eat your food on a boat, while going for a ride.
