Sand pyramids

Sand pyramids

Sand pyramids are located at the ninth kilometer of the old road Foca – Miljevina – Sarajevo (on the right side of the road) in the place called Sljivovice.

This unique geomorphological  phenomenon, was being created in long series of years. By erosion of the soil and under the influence of aggressive frost compound, summer heat, rain and strong winds, interesting shape figures have been made. Their shape and composition remind those in Colorado (USA), Dolomites (Italy) or Devil’s Town (Serbia).

Sand pyramids were mentioned for the first time in Austro-Hungarian period, and by some claims they are over 200 years old.

The erosion process lasts until today, so they do not disappear but grow up. They reach 20 meters height. Striated sand pillars arise from their wide foundations and narrow to the top, and that way make outstanding geo morphological uniqueness on these areas.

In the 1960’s, certain parts of the movie called Captain Lesi, were filmed on this attractive location.
