Overview

 
Jezerce
 
The hut is located in central part of Prenj, one of the most beautiful mountains in Bosnia at altitude of 1655 m ASL near Taraš peak. Jezerce is starting point (or Base Camp as we call it) for many hike and climbing routes on this mountain.

History


There are some suggestions that on this location was "Katharinen Hütte" built by Austria-Hungary goverment.
In 1933, MC "Prijatelji Prirode" from Sarajevo has built small hut on this location.

After World War II, Mountaineering Union of Bosnia and Herzegovina made enlargement and in 1951 gave it to MC "Borašnica" from Konjic then to MC "Prenj" from Mostar.

In the middle of 80's, the hut wasn't locked anymore and maintained and supplied by mountaineers themselfes which functioned good.
This hut has been destroyed during the war in Bosnia.
