– Natural jacuzzi in Mikulici (trekking tour)
One of the Mount Rumija’s miracles is the naturally formed slab, locally referred to as Jacuzzi, created through centuries by the river called “Vruća” (hot ) river, bustling with high temperature water during summer time.
The hike starts after a 30 minute panoramic drive towards the former village of Mikulići, at the foothill of mountain Rumija. In this small mountain village, rests a medieval mosque and church that are preserved by all the villagers, regardless of their religious beliefs.
Passing through the oak forest, your local guide will lead the way towards the natural rock formation, popularly referred to as the “Jacuzzi”. Oak forests (lat. Quercus trojana) are characteristic for coastal mountains, with clean and fresh air and areas with over 200 sunny days, such as the city of Bar.
“Vruća” river is unique in that it runs on natural stone slabs, which additionally heat the water of the river. Because of this, locals named the river a “Vruća” (eng. hot river). One of the smaller waterfalls at the beginning of the stream created this natural Jacuzzi, ideal for bathing and relaxation at your choice, or an intimate picnic with your loved ones.
This region, is full of harmony, spirituality and wild mountain beauty!
