Ethno village

Ethno village Stanisici, Bijeljina R.S. , Bosnia


Was founded in 2003, as the result of the inspiration of its owner, Boris Stanišic. He had travelled the villages of central Bosnia for more than several years, in search for old houses and objects that would keep alive the image of the way of life at the turn of the twentieth century. The search ended in an authentic mountain village in the middle of the Semberian plain.

The village is made up of several mills, a dairy, an ironmonger's, a stone well, a barn and authentic wooden houses displaying household objects and traditional attire.

All these buildings are near the pond and the brook winding between them. They are also made into a whole by stone paths. Spring water flowing all around the village symbolizes the origin of life, existence and permanence.
