Una National Park | Nacionalni park Una | Bihać

…A place that promises adventure…

Una National Park is a picturesque protected area Nestled south of Bihać, near the border with Croatia and is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s four national parks. It was established in 2008 to preserve the exceptional natural beauty of the Una River and its surrounding landscapes.

At the heart of the park flows the enchanting Una River, revered by the Romans who aptly named it “the one and only” due to its mesmerizing beauty. Here, the river cascades over limestone formations, forming spellbinding waterfalls like Štrbački buk and Milančev waterfall in Martin Brod.
