At almost 1,500 meters above the sea level, there is the highest and most isolated village in Bosnia and Herzegovina – Lukomir. This village belongs to the municipality of Konjic, it is located about 50 kilometers away from Sarajevo and represents a symbol of the historical, cultural, architectural, and environmental heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It is unique for its old stone houses, which are about 200 years old and covered with cherry wood shingles, as well as for its traditional clothes, women today wear knitted garments that have been worn centuries ago.

According to the stories of the locals, the village is more than 300 years old, and the origin of the name is not known. It is speculated that i tis the combination of words harbor (luka) and peace (mir), and this village is that indeed. However, the tombstones at the edge of the village say that the village was inhabited in 14th and 15th century.

Life in Lukomir depends of the season. From late April until September people are doing mainly animal husbandry and agriculture. When winter comes, most of the inhabitants move to lower altitudes.

Locals in Lukomir are kind and hospitable. They will offer you a cup of coffee or homemade tea, make Bosnian pie, tell legends and folklore of this region and introduce you to their life, which is the same as it used to be hundreds of years ago.
