For years, the Ziličina rural tourism facility in the vicinity of Rogatica has been serving as a watchtower for entering the world of eastern Bosnian rural idyll and authentic pastoral atmosphere. This rural household will offer you access to a unique natural environment surrounded by the canyon of the river Rakitnica, one of the deepest gorges in Europe and the world’s natural wonder.
Ziličina is also the last outpost to get refreshments and catch some breath before visiting local waterfalls and crystal clear rapids which will literally “burden” your senses of smell, hearing and sight. Hospitable hosts and a restaurant whose kitchen sounds make up an ode to traditional Bosnian cuisine will ensure that your sense of taste is not neglected either. Here, you will welcome the sight of rural culinary favorites such as corn meal, cicvara, donuts and potatoes with sour cream. Grilled trout is an indispensable dish as well, and its smell will surely stay with you during your visit to Rakitnica as the natural home of these fish.
Gourmets of meat dishes should not miss the specialty of the house in the form of a smoked “vješalica” (saddle) in kaymak and its stuffed white variant. In addition, veal under the bell (sač) will easily prepare your palate and stomach for the trip to the exotic canyon. If you feel that you need a “boost” to your adventurous enthusiasm, there is also a selection of top-quality homemade brandies, wines and craft beers. On the way out, ask for food and homemade juices to take with you and make sure that they last at least until your first return to the wild nature and the unique rustic ambience of Ziličina.
