One of the oldest people who have inhabited Lika, Kordun and western Bosnia were the lapydes (Iapodes, or Japodes), a very interesting tribe in the ancient territory of Illyria. Luckily, there are still people who cherish the memory of this ancient tribe.
Therefore, we would like to draw your attention to the Una Aqua Center in Racic which is located in a very delicate and unique ecosystem composed of five islets. This is a place definitely worth visiting! The Center, led by a team of enthusiasts, offers a range of sports and other entertainment and leads a responsible business, making sure that their work has a positive impact on the society and the environment in which they operate.
The lapydes were a well-organized tribe, equally exposed to continental and Mediterranean influences which are reflected in their distinctive artistic expression. Today’s Lika County was their main area, and the area by the River Una was known for their interesting stilt houses that were raised on wooden poles over, or near, Una. Three certainly verified prehistoric stilt house settlements on the river were located in: Ripac, Golubic and the Bukva waterfall between the villages of Lohovo and Racic. You can find out more about the history of the ancient lapydes in the Museum of the Una-Sana Canton in Bihac.
