Re: Nice...

No, I still hadn't been there. Only route on Cvrsnica I am familiar with is the one from Masna luka to Plocno (actually, the next weekend I'm going - weather permitting - to climb Vran and day after Plocno) and I hope that Vilinac will come into the schedule soon enough. So many mountains, so little time. :)

Good luck and I wish you the best weather, because I could be there somewhere next weekend again, if weather allows!! :)

I wonder how many more years the door will stay open?!

Re: Very cool

Probably for a very long time.
I believe as an old man I'll continue visiting them. :)

Re: Awesome

It was great weekend hike. You start about 220m above sea level, and you finish on 2.000m.

Interesting

How did it get it's name? Partisans hiding in the mountains maybe??

Re: Interesting

The name is coming from middle age. Hajduci were kind of thieves at that time and they were hiding in mountains and hardly accessible areas. (Hajducka vrata, eng. Rebel's door)
I suppose this translation is not totally correct, but it is closest I found.
So I suppose these "door" is quite older than people usually think.
And most impressive is thing that they are naturaly shaped.

Bosnian Robin Hood?

Great pic, Samer. I hope to go to Cvrsnica someday, maybe this summer? Why not together... also again I'm planning Prokletije.

Azrice, samo napred, drzim fige!

Dave, I reckon 'hajduci' were some kind of outlaws who robbed the rich to give the poor, in the Robin Hood style... maybe someone will correct me.

cheers,
kamil

Re: Bosnian Robin Hood?

Why not, Kamil?? I would be really glad if we would go together.
Well, Hajduci were generally stealing from everybody and keeping it mostly for themselves... :)
