    -archeology in kupres

    by elae Updated Jan 20, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ''Blanka Magaš mentioned that in February 2004, a group of Kupres citizens established the non-governmental organization "Kupreška visoravan" that has 37 members and has a program that includes protection of cultural monuments. She said that on the territory of the municipality there are necropolises that are 3500 to 5000 years old (researched by Bešlagiæ in 1952 and published in a monograph), tumuli (in the middle ages steæak tombstones were placed at the site above the tumuli, and today there exists a Muslim cemetery that is still used), an early Christian basilica in Otinovci (partly restored with the expert assistance of the Archeological Museum in Split), a necropolis at the Ravanjska gate. There is also a large group of necropolises with some 550 steæak stones, but they are in a mined area.
    Dominik Stojanoviæ mentioned the most important sites in the territory of the Municipality (necropolis with steæak tombstones Ravanjska gate, tumuli by the Kupres – Livno road, and the site Ðerzelez where a Roman fortress once stood).''

    wild boar habitation - Stolino vrilo

    by elae Updated Jan 17, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stolino vrilo is famous for the wild boar habitation. The local hunting fellowship is taking care of them . Many locals and tourists from the region come to see wild boars ***they are friendly and they are always running toward people in hope that visitors would give them something to eat*** they have much space in their habitat is enclosed with wire so that they can't run into wilderness where in some areas mines are hidden!!!!
