It is Vojin’s Bakic piece, he was internationally famous sculptor (died in 1992) and it is dedicated to WWII partisans. It was built in 1980’s and was controversial because it was not in then normal soc-realist style.

Few pictures from Bosnian backroads this time. Four of us went for ride on Sator Mountain and we had a blast. Nice scenery and cool roads, and I mounted knobbies at last.

My wife is Croatian and we normally visit a few times per year. Around July/August I can often be found in the mountains on the Slovenian/Croatian border in a place called Prezid.

I keep a little KLR250 there (which I rode down from London) for chasing bears in the forest and sometimes I ride down from London in summer too. A fantastic country.

Hi Sp!ke, this weekend we were in your neighborhood. Here is the route.



We started with little detour trough the woods. There was some rain on previous days.









Back to the sealed road.



After some time on asphalt we reached Kupa River. Slovenia is on the other side.







Then we headed towards Orlove Stijene (Eagle Cliffs).











After passing trough Mrkopalj we were back on gravel. We visited monument on Matic Poljana, stone columns are representing 26 partisans who died there when their column was caught by blizzard in 1944.









We tried to ride same road from other side few weeks ago (post #101) but it was blocked by snow. Now it is passable.







We took another detour trough the woods.







Before heading home we went to check how water level in Dobra canyon is changing because of new dam.
Beginning of May:





end of June:

Hello Damir
Are there any possibility to rent motorcycles in Zagreb? Or can you rent some of your bikes?
