Dinaric Alps Mountain Meadows of the Sinjajevina (Blue) Mountains

 

 

The Dinaric Alps, also known as the Dinarides, are a mountain range in South and Southeast Europe, separating the Balkan Peninsula from the Adriatic Sea. They extend from Italy in the northwest through Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo to Albania in the southeast.

From Ravnjak, you can explore the Sinjajevina mountain range (or plateau). The Sinjajevina massif is 40 km long and 15 km wide, characterized by its karst fields, beautiful grass-covered slopes, and, in some places, forests of the endangered mountain pine species Muleka. Sinjajevina is the second-largest pasture in Europe. The mountain meadows of Sinjajevina are little affected by environmental pollution in Europe, and in the summer, you'll encounter many people practicing traditional agriculture there.

Some hidden areas of this plateau, away from the tourist routes near Zabljak and Kolasin, are literally a "paradise on earth" with flocks of sheep and picturesque shepherd huts scattered along green slopes, surrounded by Muleka forests and mountain peaks.

From the hotel, you can take a several-hour hike on the "Wild Road" through the Fast Waters (Bistri Vodi) forest (formerly an untouched forest until a few years ago when this road was built) and visit the Sinjajevina plains in the area of the historic Rose Church.

If you decide to take a full-day jeep tour with one of the local guides, you will see the "Valley of Karst Caves," the "Valley of Blueberries," and you will be shown some of the most beautiful places on this mountain plateau before reaching the Rose Church (Ruzica) and driving back to the hotel on the "Wild Road." Along the way, you will see people of the Sinjajevina plains practicing traditional agriculture, experience their mountain lifestyle, and be surprised by their hospitality. You will be able to taste their agricultural products, eat the most environmentally friendly food you have probably ever experienced, and purchase it.

A proposed itinerary for a full-day tour with a short hike can be found below.
