About Prime - forest Perucica

Wild and untouched jungle and one of the last oases of nature in Europe. The most precious and the biggest pearl of NP Sutjeska natural treasure in Perucica. For centuries it has been resisting to civilization and human desire to conquer her due to material interests. While that may be so, but through centuries her inaccessibility was her biggest defense and in 1952, Perućica was pronounced a strictly protected reserve of nature, like one of the last remaining primeval forests in Europe.

When you arrive atthe „Dragošsedlo“ viewpoint, where you can see 13 000 hectares of brutal and clean nature, it is experience on its own, but when you look deep into the profound and see unreal image of wild beauty and waterfall „Skakavac“, and how it falls down along vertical rocks in length of 80 meters with all its force. It`s a breath taking sight, and definitely amazing. And when you thought how phenomenal it would be to go under the waterfall in that moment, you awaken the adventurer gene and spirit, that all of us carry deeply buried inside ourselves. A view from Dragos sedlo to Skakavac is memorable, a captivating sight that is a symbol of the landscape.

How from huge down thrown rotten tree a new life begins and how a thin new tree battles with 50 meter highlanders, a few centuries old, for their place under the sun can’t be written, it has to be seen. To go deep into the heart of the jungle and to put a crown on that effort by a shower under the waterfall, while thousands of icy drops fall on you like frost, is truly unforgettable experience of a lifetime The primeval forest is a strictly protected area and along with those principles, during your visit, we must behave with respect and must not ruin what Mother Nature unselfishly gave to us.
