Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Vukov Konak is a traditional mountain house only 18 km from downtown Sarajevo. We invite you to experience the real Bosnian mountain life with us and our herd of donkeys, goats, cats and dogs. We have a small restaurant and guestrooms for up to 10-12 people. The house is a beautiful, over a 100 years old loghouse, situated at 1300 meters above sea level. It's surrounded by deep pine and spruce forests, peaceful medows and animal pasture lands.

Just a short trip from Sarajevo finds you in some of the most serene and beautiful surroundings in the area. This eco "attraction" offers cozy lodging, terrific food and lots of outdoor possibilities. You get relaxed just being there--perfect for hiking, biking, winter activity or just sitting and letting nature draw you in. The owners, Jasmin and Nepu, are friendly and welcoming. Jasmin is a great cook; everything was really tasty, including things he usually doesn't prepare but did in order to accommodate special diets. Nema problema (no problem). And prices are very reasonable. They also lead outdoor activities or can advise you on what to do and help arrange it. Friendly animals abound on the property--goats, dogs, occasionally donkeys. A totally reviving experience. Definitely worth returning to.

Perfect place to run away from city and pollution. Great food, interior, service and connection with nature. Dog friendly too.

To be able to get away from the city in 20 minutes and be at such peaceful and beautiful place, from where I am right now, seems like a dream.
From the first time I visited I felt that this place is kind of like second home. Each time I reach that last strip of road that goes through the woods, all the worries disappear, and I'm just happy and relaxed.
Any season has something to offer and I really cant decide if I like it more when its covered in snow and looks like winter fairytale (with horses appearing in front of your car to lick the salt of your car), or in the summer when you can leave the unbearable heat of the city and lay in the shade in some good company, good book and most delicious food.
Getting there is easy, whether you drive, take a taxi, or bike. Several times I went there in wintertime with some, at first, very nervous cab drivers who, in the end, were pleasantly surprised how well maintained the roads were, and no special winter equipment is needed. As I'm not someone who owns a bike, or rides it that often, my first bike ride up to Vukov Konak was something of a test . But in the end, it was quite easy, and the feeling of success once you reach is what makes it worth it. (also after biking, to reach such good food is quite a reward...and also ride back to the city is all downhill, and all fun).

To be at this place where everyone is relaxed, where cat plays with the dog, where little goats are walking around very interested in what is that that you have at your table, where donkey love couple passes by... It is a wonderful feeling.

So far I'm only visited Vukov Konak in the hopes of getting couple of days off from "normal life" and spend quality time with my friends, relax and have no hurry anywhere for once. Options are open for hiking, biking, Sarajevo visits etc... but sometimes just the fact that you can "dissapear" for a long afternoon nap and eat homemade simple, but delicious food from morning till the evening, is all one needs (this is my favorite part). Goats running around & super friendly people makes it like second home pace. It feels like one big happy community :)

Prices are (in this case coming from Slovenia), super cheap and there's always something to drink and eat (and even if not offered, by asking it will be prepared).

Highly recommended!

In the 21st century when we are surrounded with all kinds of noise and tiered of pace that resembles fast & furious most than anything else Vukov konak comes as perfect getaway, sanctuary where you can forget about stress and ugly city blocks and enjoy a bit of nature less then hour away from Sarajevo. Great homemade food and drinks help a bit, too :)
