Pliva lakes and watermills

Jezero platoLocated a few kilometers away from Jajce are the Great and Small Pliva Lakes. These lakes offer many recreational opportunities: fishing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, playing volleyball, biking and walking. There are also public barbeque facilities along the lakeside for picnics.

The “heavy” water of these lakes – meaning a high level of hydrogen – makes them particularly still, which creates a stunning reflection of the mountains surrounding them. Their heavy water also makes the lakes ideal for boating activities and training, and they have been the site of major world and European competitions in kayaking and canoeing.

 Watermills on the Pliva lake                        

The watermills are located on the Pliva River, 5km outside of the Jajce town center. The twenty watermills sit upon a limestone partition that separates the Great and Small Pliva lakes. Dating back to the Middle Ages, these watermills demonstrate the historical architecture style and carpentry techniques of the region.

Due to the historical, architectural, and geological value of the Pliva lakes and watermills, both were declared to be “National Monuments of Bosnia and Herzegovina” in 2009.

Jajce…what a pleasant surprise!

MoniaSurely you happened to visit new places using the fact that you have a friend who lives over there and that it’s a pleasure to meet. It happened to me thousands of times and still keeps happening! For the 1° of May I decided to go and see Stephanie Ploquin, a volunteer who is doing her EVS in Jajce, a small city of Bosnia. After a longer travel than expected (I waited 4 hours to cross the border) I have finally arrived at destination. The first reaction I had visiting the city was: WOW! I never imagined that there were so many things to see and visit!
