piva lake glamping
Lake Piva was formed after the Piva River was dammed to generate hydrologic power in 1975. Interesting part of the story is that on the bottom of the lake is the old town Plužine. At the spring of River Piva was Piva Monastery, built between 1573 and 1586. It has been relocated 7 km from Plužine, in village Goransko and the works on its displacement lasted longer than a decade, from 1970 to 1982.
Beside that story, very important one is about stećci, medieval tombstones. This interesting phenomenon you will be able to see in certain areas of the Balkan. They demonstrate the merging of religions, chivalry and folk cultures between the 12th and 16th century. They are decorated with unusual and beautiful carvings, social, religious symbols, ornaments, unclassified motifs. Throughout Montenegro, Serbia, BiH and Croatia there are over 70,000 mysterious carved stone tomb monuments at 3,000 sites. 28 of those, including three in our country are protected UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
