NAŠE REFERENCE: projekti zbog kojih smo ponosni

This cycling route, 28.2 km long, includes a network of local and gravel roads that connect World War II monuments. The war claimed many victims, leaving behind the desolation of the civilized, cultural and sacred part of life. At that time, 66 Franciscans, whom the people call the "Herzegovinian Franciscan Martyrs", were killed, along with many other innocent victims. Široki Brijeg is the focus of the Memorial Center, a spiritual and cultural center with a large Ethnographic Museum and a library dedicated to the Herzegovinian Franciscan martyrs, which is the starting point of this route, and ends at Bilim, where there is a large cemetery complex and the Memorial Center. This route actually pays tribute to all the victims.

Tour Details

SHORT INFO DESCRIPTION OF THE TRAIL

The journey begins in Široki Brijeg, from where you climb towards the villages of Gornji Gradac, Grabova Draga and Bile. Halfway from Grabova Draga, north towards Goranci, there is a Misište where a holy mass has traditionally been celebrated for hundreds of years in memory of the difficult times for Christianity in these areas. It is the place where, during the time of the Turks, the friars and their believers hid in order to celebrate the holy mass. After visiting Misišta, we continue our journey towards the Cemetery of Peace on Bilim, a large cemetery complex and memorial center on Bilim, designed as a gathering place for all victims from World War II and the Homeland War and victims killed during the communist regime. After visiting Groblje mira, there is a descent towards Široki, that is, the location from where our journey started.

What to Expect

RECOMMENDATION

Although the first part of the trail takes us through populated areas and you drive on an asphalted section, on the section from Široki Brijeg to Bila you drive on a macadam part of the trail that has a lot of climbs, but is very well paved and does not pose a problem for driving. As part of this section is driven through uninhabited areas, we recommend that you stock up on sufficient amounts of water in Široki Brijeg. We always believe that on longer rides it is necessary to bring a mini tool and a tool for patching inner tires, so the rule also applies to this section. We definitely recommend that you inform your family or friends about your cycling plans before going for a ride.
Helmet mandatory!

ABOUT THE CYCLING RURAL PROJECT

The Peace Cycling Trail is a cycling trail that was developed and implemented as part of the Cycling Rural project - Cycling routes for the improvement of the natural and cultural heritage of Herzegovina and Montenegro. The project "Cycling routes for the improvement of the natural and cultural heritage of Herzegovina and Montenegro" is carried out within the framework of the Cross-Border Cooperation Program Bosnia and Herzegovina - Montenegro, which is financed by the European Union. The project officially started on October 1, 2019, and its implementation will last 18 months. The total value of the project is EUR 495,000.00, of which the European Union finances EUR 400,000.00. The partners in the project are the West Herzegovina County Government Office for European Integration as the project holder, the City of Široki Brijeg, the City of Ljubuški, the Municipality of Posušje, the Municipality of Grude and the Tourist Organization of Herceg Novi. The European Union finances this project with the aim of strengthening and diversifying the quality of the tourist offer, as well as the development of outdoor cycling and tourist offers in the rural areas of the cross-border regions of Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
