A Bosnian amateur archaeologist in 2005 discovered pyramids in Visoko, 15 miles northwest of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina. His discovery was met with a lot of scepticism from around the world. As the research progressed, and various specialists increasingly confirmed the authenticity and importance of this discovery, amazement and scepticism gave way to valuable hands of many volunteers from around the world whose number is increasing every year as are the number of countries from which they come. Explorations of these stone buildings connected by underground tunnels, slowly reveal the puzzle of an ancient civilization. Many people are still sceptical of these discoveries, while many visit this archaeological sight hoping to feel some of its mystic history. If you would like to see for yourselves, if you would like to feel the mystery and decide, “if the truth is there somewhere” or if history has already been penned down, join us in this mysterious journey.
Extra value: experience in the tunnels of Ravno, beneath the pyramids (proven medicinal effects).
