Vukov Konak - Library and little store inside

The house

  1. Vukov konak is an old school wooden house, it can feel chilly indoors during winter months and cool in the summer. Bring your home slippers and woollen jumpers!
  2. We do not have wifi, tv, or microwave. Mobile network coverage is weak. Hot water is not instant, it needs to be heated, and can take up to 2–3 hours.
  3. We have power-cuts every now and then. Cut-offs can last a few hours.
  4. Our house is pet-friendly. Our resident cats sleep indoors and we welcome furry guests, too! Please let us know about a pet you’ll be bringing along.

The kitchen & food

  1. Our guests can enjoy all meals from Vukov konak kitchen. We don’t have a written menu, we offer seasonal foods and have only a few options for each meal (as per pre-order also gluten-free, vegetarian etc.)
  2. All food is home made and cooked from scratch, there’s no fast food options here.
  3. Please don’t bring your own foods & drinks, the kitchen is used by our staff only. 

Lifestyle

  1. Your visit is likely to feel as if you’re visiting someone’s home or a community, and less like staying in a hotel. Although our family doesn’t live at Vukov konak, our volunteer staff stays in the main building, and we often enjoy coffees and lunch all together.
  2. Our lifestyle is best described as ‘simple & organic’. In best case scenario we get to spend the days with our guests and go hiking together etc.— Staying with us during the week (Mon-Fri) ensures you a more peaceful ambience and possibility of going hiking with our family and staff —
  3. Atmosphere at Vukov konak is relaxed and easygoing. While it can be really quiet, especially summer weekends can also get pretty busy. Our kids and animals bring some noise and life into the house, too!
  4. If you’re staying overnight, let us know what time you’ll be arriving but relax, we don’t have official check-in or -out times. 

The village and weather

  1. If you’re visiting us first time, see our location (link!) and follow the directions carefully! Try to arrive during daylight. Do not rely on map apps or ‘short cuts’ (the smaller mountain passes are often cut off due to snow, mud, and other natural phenomenons). 
  2. If you don’t drive, let us book you a taxi. Our regular taxi knows the way and is reliable. 
  3. Unfortunately there’s no public transportation. For hiking up: google hiking vukov konak and you’ll find some advice. We don’t recommend hitchhiking up the mountain, in order not to get lost. (Hitching your way down, on the other hand, can be fairly easy.)
  4. There are very few services in our village. Just a simple shop and a few places for coffees and beers further away.
  5. The weather is unpredictable on the mountain. At 1300 meters it’s usually some degrees cooler than in Sarajevo and overall the weather changes quickly. Gear up with some extra layers, weatherproof clothes and hiking boots!

Got Questions for us?

We’re open all weekends, but during the week only as per bookings. When there are none, we close our doors and go hiking with our family and volunteers.
