The transformation of neglected, swampy land with wild landfills in Visoko
(Bosnia-Herzegovina) into the most beautiful and comprehensive park in the south
of Europe has been going on for almost ten years.
The great team of the ‘Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun’
Foundation has created an exciting archaeological park with five discovered
entrances to prehistoric underground tunnels. Also a sports park with top tennis
courts and an auditorium for 2,000 visitors that was opened by the world's best
tennis player Novak Djokovic in July 2022, then a beach volleyball and basketball
court that hosted international tournaments.
Park ‘Ravne 2’ has become a cultural oasis of Hum (the Balkans) with numerous
festivals, fairs, concerts, book promotions, theater performances, yoga sessions and
walking meditations in the labyrinths of love, energy, purification and health,
tango, salsa and folklore festivals and numerous workshops.
It is increasingly becoming the largest open art gallery space. Namely, the
Foundation connected with the best sculptors from Bosnia-Herzegovina from the
Academy of Fine Arts of the University of Sarajevo, supporting neglected art and
Only in the past few months, the Park has become richer for the original, unique
stećak, a gable on a pedestal, weighing 10 tons. Dr. Adis Ellias Fejzić carved
cosmic symbols, which are normally found on the stećak phenomenon, giving it
his creative stamp and creating a true masterpiece of modern sculpture.
The Illyrian Queen Teuta, who ruled 2,250 years ago, got her own pavilion, and
her original statue is the work of Master of Sculpture Damir Šabić. Right next to it
is the pavilion with King Stefan (Steven) Tvrtko Kotromanić, the work of
Professor Darko Šobot. Professors and students from the Academy of Fine Arts of
the University of Sarajevo are the authors of “Flying Pyramids with a Heart”.
This year, the Alley of busts of immortal poets of love poetry was opened: Tagore
(India), Rumi (Persia), Neruda (Chile), Lorca (Spain), Yesenin (Russia) and Edgar
Allan Poe (USA). Our brilliant mind, Nikola Tesla, got his own pavilion and ‘Tesla
Square’, and the extraordinary statue was made by master of sculpture Damir
Previously, a ‘Geopuncture Circle’ was set up in the Park, the creators of which
were fourteen sculptors from six countries (USA, Austria, Germany, Czech
Republic, Croatia, Slovenia) headed by the UNESCO ambassador, sculptor Marko
Pogačnik. The ‘Green Crystal Pyramid’ bears the symbolism of Peace, Love, Joy
and Cosmic Unity, and on the floor of the room the Chinese energy symbolism of
‘Bagua’ according to the life philosophy of Feng Shui. Slovenian artist Vesna
Neferamis is the author of the statue ‘She’, which is a symbol of female energy.
Twenty-four columns with painted motifs of mysterious archaeological sites on six
continents make up the ‘Time Plane’ installation.
The plans for 2024 are very ambitious. The construction of five Bosnian villas
(Gorska, Villa, Bosanska Villa, Crvena Villa, Kraljica Villa Zlatna, Villa Planinka)
was agreed, which will find their home in the ‘Magic Forest’ of the Park, then a
pavilion with replicas of statues found in prehistoric Vinča and busts of our poets (
Miroslav Krleža, France Prešeren, Petar Petrović Njegoš, Meša Selimović, Ivo
Andrić, Aleksa Šantić, Desanka Maksimović, Mak Dizdar) and our giants of
scientific thought (Ruđer Bošković, Vladimir Prelog, Lavoslav Ružička, Mihajlo
Pupin, Milutin Milanković, Jožef Štefan, Muris Osmanagić, Mileva Marić
The park had 10,000 visits in 2016, and a record number of 200,000 visitors is
expected in 2023, making it the most visited tourist destination in central BiH.
Entrance to the Park, parking lots, toilets, installations and all programs are free for
visitors. In the last two years, there were more than 100 elementary schools in the
park who spent the whole day there.
The owners of the park, Dr. Semir Osmanagić and Sabina Osmanagić, donated the
Park to the Foundation, which maintains it and invests in its contents, providing
them for free use by the local community and tourists from all over the world.
Original modern stećak, gabled on plinth, 10 tons, with double helix symbols,
Illyrian and medieval horseman, Sun and Moon, entwined dragons, tree of life,
swastika, hexagon, formula ‘3-6-9’ and star constellations of Pleiades and Orion.
The last Bosnian ban and the first Bosnian king Stefan (Steven) Tvrtko
Kotromanić, ruler of the Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian and Montenegrin territories,
bringer of prosperity to the region.
The Illyrian queen Teuta ruled from 231 BC. to 228 B.C. and she defended her
kingdom from the ancient Roman state that occupied territories. Her statue corrects
centuries-old injustice to the ruler who is described by our folklore as ‘Wise as a
snake, brave as a lion and beautiful as a fairy’.
Nikola Tesla, the man who invented the future, the author of 600 patents, one of
the greatest minds Hum (Balkan) ever had.
The pyramid on the hexagon base enhances energy, the three-dimensional heart is
a symbol of love, the wings bring freedom, and the Sun brings life.
The statue ‘She’ carries a message of love with a heart facing the visitors, which is
on the plate ‘Flowers of Life’, with a face without facial features because it
represents all women, female energy, the energy of empathy, emotion, love.
The Geopunctural circle amplifies the energy of the space, “heals our Mother
Earth”. The carved symbols represent the ‘Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun’, the
‘Bosnian Pyramid of Love’, the ‘Bosnian Dragon Pyramid’, the elements of
creation, duality… All the blocks face south. The sun's rays fall on the white
surface, bounce off it, and carry into the world the messages of love and positive
energy of the pyramids.
The authors of love poetry do not know about the political boundaries that our
civilization draws. From Hindu and Persian poetry, to Latin American, Russian
and American. Love woes are the same everywhere and affect all people regardless
of which continent they live on.
Painted mysterious archaeological sites of pyramids in Egypt, Mauritius,
Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, Cambodia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Indonesia,
USA megalithic sites of South Africa, France, Great Britain, Peru, Ethiopia,
Australia, Sweden… The passage between the pillars of the ‘Time Machine’ is as a
passage through space and time.
