Stecak are medieval tombs specific to the area of Bosnia Herzegovina. They are in the UNESCO heritage. The necropolis has very beautiful tombs with special sculptures. There is an entry fee, but there is no guide. This location must be visited.

No guide tour. You have to know what you are viewing, because then you saw only stones. Ticket office with toilets and cafe.

Thank you for the discovery of your page. Is the poetry reciting going to be an annual event? Is it schedule or programed for next year? Please forward a date or contacts. I am quite interested in family history and I am sure my roots dig deep into the Radimlja necropolis. Grateful for God's mysteries, Boris Petrovich Miloradovich
