La corrida – Bosnian way

_MG_8027

Traditional Bosnian bull fight. Tradition that is more then 200 years old and mostly characteristics for western and north western part of Bosnia. Most famous place is mountain Grmeč. I went today at Oštra Luka, Popovića Brdo that is taking place every year, first Sunday in august. I wanted to shoot it last year, but it was on my marriage day so… 🙂

It is whole day event with a lot of tents with live folk music, fresh cooked meals, cold drinks… Bull fighting lasts only for an hour or a bit longer but there are traditional games and events that fulfill the day. Throwing rocks from shoulder and pulling the rope.
