Day 04: VLASIC MOUNTAIN/VISOCO PYRAMID/SARAJEVO
|(Turquoise green river...)|
After breakfast, we drove back towards Sarajevo via Visoco. The journey took an hour of winding mountainous road, made slippery with ice and sleet at certain parts.

|(Exploring the complex labyrinth...)|
In Visoco we explored the underground labyrinth of the KTK tunnels, one entrance leading towards the Pyramid of the Sun and another towards the Pyramid of the Moon with many more site tunnels undiscovered.

|(A long walk to the conical pyramid...)|
The Bosnian Pyramid in Visoco Mountain is the first pyramid discovered in Europe and even higher than that of the grand pyramid of Giza. The pyramid is situated in Central Europe and has the characteristics of a pyramid with 4 corners pointing to the cardinal points. There is a main entrance accessing the pyramid complex. Medieval ruins were also discovered on top of the pyramid, and claimed to be the administrative centre of the Bosnian King Tvrtko of Kotromanic (1338-1391).

Back in Sarajevo, we had a very late lunch at Inat Kuca Restaurant. The rest of the afternoon we had free time to walk through the open and closed bazaars. The Gazi Husrev Beg Bazaar is a closed bazaar similar but very much smaller than the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. It is situated at Bascarsija the heart of Sarajevo.
We spent the night in the Astra Garni Hotel, Sarajevo.
