In this section, the vertical and horizontal sections are replaced, and the end is a stroke along the ridge that takes away breath. At the end of this section comes the third peak from where the view of the hanging bridges opens. Navigating through hanging bridges is an unforgettable adventure. The first bridge is 27 meters long and contains 54 metallic treads on which you are moving and the second bridge of 9 meters is a walkway along one cable. After the bridges, the trail leads the ridge to the last vertical which leads to the very top of Berima. The view from Berim is unique and represents the best reward for this incredible adventure. The descent from Berim is a forest road that leads to Previa, a place where a minibus is parked.

Ibarski Kolasin

Kolasin belongs, geographically and ethnically, to the central part of the Balkan Peninsula or the Raska region. In this area, in the Middle Ages, there was a center of a Serbian state called Raska. Ibarski Kolasin is a name for an area that extends along the Ibar River, in the north of Kosovo and Metohija and in the south of the Raska region. The largest city in Ibar Kolasin is Zubin Potok. In the Ibar valley, at the end of the sixties and early seventies of the 20th century a dam was built when created Gazivode Lake.

Famous Serbian geographer, Jovan Cvijić was of the opinion that the Serbs of Kolasin moved from the Montenegrin Kolasin to Tara and therefore gave this Kolasin the name of Stari Kolasin.

Many monasteries, buildings and other cultural monuments of this region have been erected by persons who marked the history of Kolasin. The most famous among them is Queen Jelena Anzujska. Then, St. Joanikija and Petar Koriski, whose relics are located in the Monastery of Crna Rijeka.

Because of its geographical location, Ibarski Kolasin has always been the target of the enemy, but he has resisted the attacks for centuries and today exists as a witness to its history.
