Prehistoric tunnels Ravne
Huge network of underground tunnels, intersections, chambers and water accumulations was constructed under the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids. Discovery of the labyrinth was predicted by discoverer of the Bosnian pyramids dr.sci. Semir Osmanagic in his book in October 2005.
Archeological-tourist park Ravne 2
Archeological-tourist park Ravne 2 was officially opened on 18th June 2016. It spans over 100000 square meters and is located in Visoko, center of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The park was created after dr. Sam Osmanagich bought 15 private parcels which he merged into one huge area that contained 7 wild landfills and swamp areas. After the water was drained, plants and grass planted, landfills removed and park facilities placed, Visoko got a beautiful park, which dr. Sam donated to the Foundation „Archeological park: Bosnian pyramid of the Sun“.
Bosnian pyramid of the Sun with its height of over 270 meters, it is the tallest pyramid in the world. It has a regular pyramid geometry with three preserved sides: north, east and west. It is lined with rectangular blocks. According to the Institute of Materials from Bosnia and Herzegovina (2006-2008) and the Politecnico di Torino from Italy (2009), the blocks are made of the highest quality concrete material superior to modern concrete.
The Bosnian pyramid of the Moon with its height of 190 meters is higher than the Great Pyramid of Egypt (147 meters). It combines shaped blocks / slabs of sandstone and layers of clay that was used as a building material in large quantities. Sources of materials are located nearby. Clay is an excellent building material and has been used as a binder, waterproofing and thermal/audio insulation. The terraced design is unique in pyramid science.

Neighborhoods of Sarajevo - Baščaršija
We will start with today's bathing area Bentbaša, which was once known as medieval village of Brodac. The founder of Sarajevo, Isabeg Isaković thought this location was just perfect for establishing a city.
In Baščaršija, he builds Kolobara Han (Kolobara Inn), a hotel in modern terms, which was soon surrounded by a multitude of shops creating the economic basis for the development of the city. Kozja ćuprija bridge (Goat Bridge) was built upstream from the village of Brodac in the 16th century, and today is an easy, half hours walk from Bentbaša along the Dariva Street. Not much is known about Kozja ćuprija, but it is certain that everything came to town through it: armies, caravans, religions, cultures and influences.
There are two traditions about the origin of Kozja ćuprija.
According to the first legend, the bridge was built by the Romans, and the second claims it was built by Mehmed Paša in memory of his childhood when he was just a poor goat shepherd.
According to the legend, one of the goats in his care discovered the hidden treasure. Mehmed used it for his education, became elected to the rank of Pasha and constructed a bridge he called “Goat’s Bridge”. Another permanent stamp was left by Gazi Husrev Beg (Gazi Husrev Bey), the conqueror of Belgrade, the irreplaceable warrior in campaigns of Suleiman the Magnificent, triple Bosnian Steward and Builder. In 1530, with his own money, he built the most monumental building of Islamic culture in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the largest sacral object of Islamic architecture in this part of the world, Gazi Husrev Beg Mosque, sitting on the right bank of the river Miljacka.
Bey Mosque, together with mekteb, wudu inn, two octagonal mausoleums and the clock tower building is the central and largest complex of the “čaršija”, and has had a significant influence on all construction activities in the city.
It is also the first mosque in the world to install electrical lighting.
