It is Time for Una!
Do not miss out on the chance to experience nature’s magic and the atmosphere of major events at “Una” National Park
The “Una” National Park is like a natural legend, a dream holiday retreat. This natural jewel is situated on the far north of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Bihać, and is a one-of-a-kind natural area in this part of Europe dotted with fortifications, mills and places of worship.
The “Una” National Park stretches along the valley of the upper stream of the Una River as well as around the Uvac River canyon, a right tributary of the Una River, all the way to a little river called Krka in the west. Even though the Una River is the most valuable feature of the park named after it, together with the other two river pearls it is a remarkable blend of diverse and well-preserved natural landscape of an outstanding natural beauty and a rich cultural and historic heritage.
The Una River is predominantly a cascade river. Adding to its beauty, tuff barriers create falls, river islands, cascades and waterfalls. Falls varying in shape and size appeal to any visitor of the park, inspire artists, while scientists find them interesting.
The opening of the summer season again makes the “Una” National park a place which treats its visitors to a variety of attractive events, some of which have long since become international and rightly so.
