Glamoc: A small Bosnian town surrounded by 17 mountains and three lakes

Situated between three lakes, and in the middle of a fertile field, the South-Western town of Glamoc dates back to 1078.

High karst mountains surround the Glamoc field from all sides. From the far southeast of this karst plateau, 17 mountain peaks line up one next to the other.

The biggest of the three emerald lakes is the Hrast lake, followed by Satorsko lake and lake Busijia.

Glamoc has a rich historical background and many monuments to prove it. The most significant one is the largest Muslim tombstone in Bosnia, belonging to one Omer-Aga Basic, who died in 1798.

The epitaph on the tombstone says "The chronogram of the death of the deceased Omer-Aga Basic is 1798. Al Fatiḥah prayer for his soul.”
