Ten years of scientific and archaeological investigation of the Bosnian pyramids have brought many exciting moments as well as dramatic turnovers which are seeking the redefining of our knowledge about history.

One such breakthrough happened in April 2015. During the six-months of cleaning and passing through new sections of the prehistoric underground tunnels, which had been discovered some time ago, the employees of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation were faced with various difficulties. During the winter of 2014 and spring of 2015, they hardly won new meters of tunnel. In one moment, in February 2015, one branch of the tunnel which leads to the South, toward the Bosnian pyramid of Sun, ended with a huge rock.

We decided to go around the rock by using side passageways. Like many other tunnels which we already discovered, these were packed with fill-out material (gravel and sand). Two side passages, to the East and West, ended in conglomerate material after about ten meters. We tried one more direction but that one didn’t led us to the desired result as well.

  • Schuman’s resonance measured on Bosnian Pyramids
  • Bosnian Pyramid complex pushes back timelines of civilization by 20,000 years

Then we decided to go around a large rock by digging a tunnel around it. Employees carried out this activity carefully, constantly checking the stability of the material, and checking measurements of oxygen and carbon dioxide. After thirty meters, the rock was bypassed.

Discovery of New Tunnels

I was in Houston when they told me that they discovered a new tunnel behind the rock. It was a new section, without any fill-in material, but was submerged underwater. I made the decision that workers should stop the work and wait for my return to Bosnia.

I formed a team of six members for the first scientific screening of the newly discovered sections.

This was not the first time that we had found open sections in which the human foot had not entered for a long period of time. It is a special feeling for every researcher and the moment when dreams come true.

Every time when the investigators have found prehistoric underground tunnels in Egypt, Mexico, China or Peru, those were often the world’s attractions and leading news which were shared across all media.

In our case, we have already explored many sections of tunnel made by intelligent hands in the distant past. So far, we have discovered 1,550 meters.

Exploration of the New Tunnels

The day of entry in the new section of the tunnel finally came. On April 30, 2015, with full protective equipment, rubber boots and waterproof suits, lamps, and compasses, we were ready for adventure.

The team consisted of the following members:

  • Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Discoverer and Principal Investigator of Bosnian Pyramids
  • Anela Preljević, B.C.in Archaeology (UCL London) and Foundation’s field archaeologist
  • Mejra Kozlo, B.C. in Geology and Foundation’s field geologist of Foundation
  • Engineer Osman Buza, assistant of Cantonal Minister for Economy
  • Jock Doubleday, videographer and PR Director of the Foundation
  • Edo Građan, employee of the Foundation

We went to the left side, heading towards the West. The height of the tunnel is around 110-120 cm. We started walking in a bent over position. I led the team. The tunnel was filled with water 20 cm deep. In some places it reached 30 cm. We found three dry sections, without water. We were looking left and right, there weren’t side passages. On the pebble floor we did not see tools or artifacts. There were no traces of burning on either the walls or the ceiling. We found some interesting elongated pieces of stone that our archaeologist Anela took for analysis.

Finally, the tunnel ended. A dry section with pebbles at the end had a round pool fifty centimeters in radius and fifty centimeters in depth. The water was clear and clean. We gave the first statement to the camera and turned back. Osman and Edo measured the length of this part of the tunnel. It was 41 meters long.

We went back to the entrance. We agreed to visit a section in the opposite direction. I said to Jock to go first and to record while the water is clear. Behind him were Anela and Meira, then Osman, Edo and me. We moved to the East. After a few meters we came to the first intersection. It has led exactly in the direction of the South. I liked that because it is the direction of the Pyramid of Sun. The tunnel, which was open, ran for about three meters before being filled with gravel material to the ceiling. We were stopped there and took a photo.

In front of us was a continuation of the tunnel in the direction of the Northeast. The water level was deeper in this section, approximately 1 meter. Osman returned back, and we continued. After seventeen meters we came to a new crossroads. Our route was blocked by stone walls and then filled with material. An open section continued to the left, towards the East. The water was becoming deeper, and found its way into my boots.

We continued even though we were getting wet. The ceiling height was now about two meters. We walked slowly through the muddy, clay soil. The water was freezing. We came to a new crossroads. The tunnels were intersecting at 90 degrees. The side passages were blocked by stone walls, and then by gravel material. I comment to Anela:

“Now you have the opportunity to enter into a new section of the tunnel. You can see that is not true that our Foundation makes drywall tunnels or digs it, these are prehistoric tunnels.”

[Note: The Foundation had previously been accused of making the tunnels themselves.]

She agreed with me and gave a statement to Jock. Mejra joined her. We continued and after only a few meters we saw one more crossroads and again the side passages were blocked. One part of the dry wall was underwater, Anela commented. She recognized a difference in the compactness of the loaded material and conglomerates in which the tunnels were made.

We continued with the investigation. With every step it became harder to walk. After a few meters, we came to the end of the flooded parts of the tunnel. It ended with sandy ground. Anela spotted a piece of wood. Organic material! She took some samples.

After a few minutes we turned back and headed for the exit. This time I measured the length of the tunnel. The branch which leads toward the East is 60 meters long. I gave information to the Mejra about the schedule of the side passages. The tunnel in the Northeast-Southwest direction is 17 meters long. The last section, which is oriented toward the West is nine meters long.

We summed up the total length of open, prehistoric section of tunnel. In total it has 127 meters. It is great information!

After two hours of investigation and adventures, we went outside. We changed our clothes and then took a photo of the organic material.

In our minds we made a plan about what to do next with the tunnels. We want to clean up the tunnel that leads to the South, in a direction of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. We need to bridge the nine meters of water, and make a barrier toward the rest of open tunnel.

One phase of investigation of tunnels is finished, and another just begins.

Our hypothesis that this is a labyrinth, which we have named ‘Ravne’, with countless tunnels and that you can always choose a direction of tunnel that will be clear, has been confirmed.

Discoverer of the Bosnian Pyramids: I have found Tesla’s ‘Torsion fields’ at the Bosnian Pyramids

Dr. Semir Osmanagić, the discoverer of the Bosnian Pyramids explains he has made another fascinating discovery which not only changes the history of the European Continent, but that of the entire planet. The discovery of Tesla’s standing waves at the top of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun—which are believed to travel faster than the speed of light, while not losing strength as they pass through cosmic bodies—prove the existence of something referred to as a cosmic web or cosmic internet which allow for a immediate intergalactic communication throughout the universe, writes Dr. Osmanagić.

Recorded energetic phenomena above the Pyramid of the Sun at Visoko seek a different definition of a pyramid compared to conventional, dogmatic explanations. The pyramids are energy boosters that send and receive information through the sun.


One of the highlights of our camper trip through Bosnia & Herzegovina was a visit to the Ravne Tunnels, an allegedly prehistorical network of tunnels and chambers located in the Valley of the Bosnian Pyramids near Visoko.

We had gathered much information about the Bosnian Pyramids and, although we were skeptical, we wanted to see and feel this place by ourselves. Well, believe it or not: exploring the labyrinth was a fascinating and enigmatic experience. And we will certainly be back for a more comprehensive visit of the whole complex!

The Underground Labyrinth “Ravne” spreads beneath the entire Valley of Pyramids and is part of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, which is, according to many scientists, a pseudo-archaeological notion to explain the formation of a cluster of natural hills in Central Bosnia.

The whole story was initiated by Dr. Semir Osmanagić, a Bosnian businessman based in Houston, Texas, who claims to have discovered the tunnel network in 2006.

Are the pyramids and the tunnels natural or man-made? Discussions are continuing… but in the meantime, the complex has been attracting numerous tourists to Visoko, which certainly has a positive effect on the economy of this poor region.

Today, the labyrinth is open to the public. All passages (around 1000m) are illuminated the average height is two meters. Believers assert that mono- and megaliths found here give healthy vibrations, that the water inside is unusually pure and that the high concentration of negative ions clean the blood and body of viruses and bacteria.

The Ravne Labyrinth is located in the Bosnian Valley of Pyramids, near Visoko, around 30 km northwest of Sarajevo. A campsite with restaurant, supermarket and hostel – with view of the Pyramid of the Sun – can be found in the nearby village of Mulići.

We booked a guided tour (60 minutes), put on a jacket and a hard hat, and followed the young guide through the low entrance gate. The first thing we discovered when we entered the tunnel network was the clean air.

Although the labyrinth is located 25m underground, the temperature is stable (12.5°C) and the oxygen level is 20.4%. The air was really fresh, clear and pleasant, as if we were somewhere in the mountains. Especially Paul, who is a heart patient, was quite surprised about this “extra shot of oxygen”. For laypersons as we are, this appeared to be the first enigma.

The guide gave us a lot of information. Some people argue that these tunnels are old mines from the Middle Ages, other ones believe that they were used by the Yugoslav People’s Army (by the way, those who are against the Bosnian Pyramid Project claim that the Bosnian Pyramid Foundation is digging them by themselves). But what were the tunnels really used for? And were they natural or man-made?

Before the excavations in 2006, the entrance to the Ravne tunnels was almost filled to the top it looked like a hole in a hill and people were calling it “cave”.

However, during the excavations, it could clearly be seen that the tunnels were man-made: the walls were made of conglomerate, but they were filled with another sand-like material. Who filled them, why and when? Do the dry walls that block the side tunnels have a special function? And is there a direct connection with the Pyramid of the Sun? There are still a lot of questions that need an answer.

In 2012, volunteers made a strange discovery in a new section of the Ravne labyrinth. They discovered an oil lamp in a side tunnel, obviously from the 17 th century. Who put it there? Nobody knows…

The guide emphasized that several megaliths were found in the tunnels. How did they come into the labyrinth? Some people argue that there were built and shaped by some culture before a big flood that covered them with the conglomerate. Anyway, they need more research.

A short stay in the healing chambers – which are also used for meditation – was fascinating, even for us, down-to-earth Dutchmen. We kept our hands above the megalith and we both felt a strange tingling in a way that was beyond comparison. Although we do not believe in “energy vibrations”, we could not ignore this sensation of energy streaming through our body. Was it really just auto-suggestion? I don’t know, but one thing is for sure: we felt good, healthy and full of energy, when we left the labyrinth!

Controversy surrounds this place in the media and the scientific world. You can be full of skepsis, but rather than relying on hearsay, you should see, feel and experience the place for yourself. Not the historical hypotheses of some local enthusiasts are important. Rely on your own real feelings, sensations of some external energy or just SOMETHING that has touched you during the visit.

The Pyramid of the Sun

The largest of the Visoko hills is known as the ‘Pyramid of the Sun’… and it’s the crowning glory of Bosnia’s ‘Valley of the Pyramids.’ Granted, it is an unusually square-looking hill. Four sides are clearly distinguishable, though the rear of the rise, away from the town, is somewhat less defined.

That’s where we were heading – around the hill, past souvenir shops all the way up, to reach a final slope ascending from the rear up to the pyramid’s apex. The road stopped beside a pyramid-themed cafe, and we took the rest on foot.

The ‘Code of the Pharaohs’ Souvenir Shop.

Inside a souvenir shop at Visoko, Bosnia & Herzegovina. Items on sale include pyramid lighters, paper weights, souvenir mugs and fridge magnets. The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, as seen from its south approach. Seen from the rear, the hill looks somewhat less like a pyramid. The road comes to an end, and we make the final climb up the Pyramid of the Sun on foot. There are no signposts on the hilltop, and many of these intersecting paths end in (highly scenic) dead-ends. Reaching the top of the Bosnian pyramid, we found the reconstructed walls of a former fortress. To the East: The Pyramid of the Moon rises in the centre of the valley. To the North: Looking down on Visoko from the Pyramid of the Sun. A reconstructed well at the very top of the Pyramid of the Sun. There was no information available to explain these structures – but the cement between the stones was freshly set. Returning later, we stopped for coffee in this delightful cafe at the foot of the pyramid.

Ravne 4 tunnels: Groundbreaking discovery with the photo galery

November 5th, 2019 is a day of another great discovery in the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids. While working in the park 'Ravne 2' employees of the 'Archaelogical park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun' Foundation has discovered potential entrance to underground tunnels.

Foundation's director Dr. Sam Osmanagich has formed team for the first prospection: field archaeologist Amna Agić, field geologist Richrd Hoyle, technician Evelina Cehajić, volunteer supervisor Marie-Sophie Gristie and field supervisor Mustafa Bajić.

At 9:15 a.m. team has entered into unknown through very small opening between river conglomerate rock and soil. The width of entrance was about 40 cm, just enough to slip in.

Journey in the prehistorical tunnels lasted for two hours. Several energy mesurements have been done. Team has been exploring sections which haven't been visited by humans for thousnds of years. Many side tunnels closed with the drywalls and filler materials have been found. No doubt, these tunnels belonged to the same underground tunnel network consisting of Ravne tunnels, ravne 2 tunnels, Healing tunnels and Ravne 3 tunnels. New underground apssageways, just 300 meters to the south from the entrance to the 'Ravne 3' tunnels were named 'Ravne 4' tunnels.

First documentary has been made on this discovery with original team and their comments.

Uncovering the mystery of the Bosnian pyramids

MYSTERY WIRE — Ancient civilizations around the world built pyramids in Egypt, China, Central America, but the oldest of them all might be in Europe.

Photos show the Valley of the Pyramids in Bosnia. They look like mountains, but are the product of a massive engineering program, according to the PhD archaeologist who has spent more than a decade as the principal investigator. He says evidence shows they are not only the largest of all the pyramids, but also the oldest. Below you can read the conversation George Knapp had with Archaeologist, Dr. Semir “Sam” Osmanagich.

Why is a guy who investigates Bosnian pyramids at a UFO conference?

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
Because I’ve been invited. And when I saw the list, we had Brien Foerster talking about ancient civilizations in Peru. Brad Olsen, the same thing, South America. I said that … makes sense for me. The rest of it is a little bit different because since I’m a scientist, I want everything to be, you know, confirmed, scientifically measured, analyzed, tested.

You’re a PhD, you speak, you teach at a university. Is there a stigma attached to being involved with a UFO conference?

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
I don’t care? Of course there is. I don’t care.

Tell me about your discovery, because I’ve read about Bosnian pyramids for a while. I didn’t know what to make of them. I know that the archaeological community tries to dismiss it, in general.

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
The Bosnian pyramids are the largest, the biggest, the oldest pyramids on the planet. In 2005. I first traveled to the little Bosnian town of Visoko in central Bosnia, just half an hour from the capital city of Sarajevo, to visit the local museum. Then I saw this — everybody called it “hill” — but it had four sides. triangular faces, four corners, the same slope from bottom to the top. I took a compass, and the compass showed me that the sides are perfectly oriented to the cardinal points. North south, east west. Mother Nature doesn’t make hills with four triangular faces in perfect orientation. However, we have been programmed to think about the pyramids, Egypt, desert, pharaohs, tombs. Let’s forget those bedtime stories about pyramids being tombs. Pyramids are actually — the first one, the biggest one, the most superior one — energy machines. So after my first visit, I asked for permission from the government to do some preliminary research — archaeological trenches, geological core drilling, lab analysis. Everything I did: anomaly, anomaly, anomaly. Meaning … not naturally made. In 2006, I established a nonprofit foundation for archaeological research, scientific research, and in the last 15 years, the Bosnian pyramid project has become the most active archaeological site in the world. Every year, 300 to 400 volunteers, so far from 63 countries. In the last 10 years, 3,550 of them. Our employees work there. Tens of thousands of visitors. (A) number of experts from different fields. Five scientific conferences. Confirming: that we have a pyramid complex in the heart of Europe, which is 33,600 years old. How do we know that? Because once you remove 3 to 4 feet of soil above the structure, we are finding concrete blocks. Some of them rectangular, some of them square in shape, from 7 to 40 tons. And not one row block, but several rows. Between those rows of blocks, we are discovering fossilized leaves. It’s organic material. It can be radiocarbon dated, which we did: 29,200 years plus minus 400 years. This is radiocarbon date and calibrated to date … their age is about 14 to 15% more: 33,600 years, the oldest pyramids on the planet.

33,000 years. That changes everything.

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
This changes everything. So the history books are wrong.

I would imagine you are hit with nothing but hostility from your colleagues around the world.

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
From day one. Archaeologists, geologists, museum curators, historians … all against us. They’ve been writing petitions to the Bosnian government to stop the project. However, since we have this touristic aspect involved, people are coming to see. They are very happy. We had, we had big support from the public in Bosnia and surrounding countries. The government really did not want, on one hand, to give us financial support. But on the other hand, they didn’t want to shut us down.

I would imagine the government would see this as a point of pride. Hey, the old pyramids in the world are here.

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
Exactly. So even though the cultural establishment is against it, the politicians are fine with this project. So, right now it is becoming a project that’s proving that with engineering knowledge, with scientific instruments, we can measure the existence of the energy beam going through the top of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, which is 28 kilohertz in frequency and electrical in nature, continuous and focused. We sent a drone above the pyramids, and what we measured was an electrical field going from 13 feet, wider all the way to 70 feet, back to 13, 70, 13. In science, these are called the scalar waves, or torsion fields. They call them Tesla’s scalar waves because he was the first one experimenting with this type of the subtle energy, 120 years back. And scalar waves move quicker than the speed of light. So they are an ideal medium for communication of very long distances. Not AT&T long distance, but vast cosmic distances.

So the question is, who built them? What civilization built them?

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
Well, now, everything we do we try to find scientific answers. We wanted to see the direction of this energy beam. In the morning, mostly to the east. Noon, south. Afternoon, southwest. Evening, west. Meaning the energy beam is following the movement of our sun. Does it mean that this energy beam is communicated with our son, using it as the cosmic gate, and then communicating with other solar systems and other galaxies? If the answer is yes, we have the cosmic internet. So yes, it was somebody obviously much more advanced than us who constructed the pyramids. Those who are the oldest — because they are the biggest, always — in China, Egypt, Bosnia, Mexico. So the first potential purpose of pyramids is the communication. And you know what, how many independent researchers in the last few decades are trying to say, well, the pyramids in Egypt are not tombs, “They’re probably this, they are probably … ” They speculate. We are the first to actually prove that, because we measure it. We have our field project.

The fact that you have pyramids — in Bosnia, in China, in Mexico, in Egypt — all these different earthly civilizations all built the same kind of structures, a coincidence? Or they were all doing the same thing?

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
Well, let’s put it this way. The oldest are the biggest. In China, Indonesia, like Gunung Padang, Koh Ker in Cambodia. The pyramids in Australia, Gympie pyramid came later. Nubian pyramids, 155 Egyptian pyramids, pyramids for the island of Mauritius, seven of them, 104 Canary Island pyramids, 300 Peru, Bolivia. Of course, 100,000 in Central America, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Belize. Mayan pyramids. Cahokia pyramids in the States. The world of the past was the world of pyramids. But the oldest are the most superior. For example, in Egypt, the oldest — limestone, granite. Those that came later 12th, 19th, 20th dynasty — mud-brick. In China, the oldest — sandstone granite. Those that came later, again, mud-brick. So, we don’t have evolution … on the contrary. So, we know that the first purpose is communication, energy beams. But, the ancients were smart. When they built the structure, they built the machine. It’s multipurpose, use. The first, communication. Second, we have a huge network of prehistoric underground tunnels under the Bosnian valley of pyramids, five pyramids. Now this network runs for tens and tens of miles. Of course, on the Giza plateau, three levels of tunnels. And Teotihuacan, Mexico, we have tunnels, and the Palenque tunnels and the Chinese pyramids’ tunnels. But our network is the most extensive, and unlike other countries, who forbid access to those tunnels, we have our tunnels open to the public. Every year, tens of thousands of people visit our tunnels and we have healing aspects in those tunnels. What does that mean? We have not hundreds, but thousands of testimonials of people being healed in those tunnels. People come with the high sugar in the blood — 10, 12, 15. They come back after one hour, it dropped to 5.7 or 5.1 which is normal level. People come at high blood pressure. They got back, normal level. People with the pains, pains are gone. People come with very serious diseases. They stay for the week. They go twice a day. Cancer, tumors, some other.

So do you have a separate investigation looking into that?

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
Of course. We have medical doctors doing that. We are the first one who approached pyramids as the interdisciplinary scientific project. Classical sciences? Yes — archaeologists, geologists, they all are part of our stuff. We have 75 employees, our little nonprofit foundation. But besides classical science, archaeology, geology, pathology, paleontology, we have high tech. We have geothermal, satellite, you know, georadar investigation, we have energy aspect, engineers, physicists, electrical, sun engineers, telecommunication engineers, medical doctors, even spiritual scientists. The healing aspect is very important. How do we explain that? Ten factors, the best electromagnetic field — which we measure. The best ultrasound frequency — 28 kilohertz, levitation frequency. The best extremely low frequency — 7.83 hz., it’s called Schumann resonances in the sciences, it’s the natural energy field of the planet. Here, it’s 12 to 15 hz. Over there, 7.83. High concentration negative ions. They remove viruses, bacterias from our body. Over here, 25 to 50 negative ions per cubic centimeters. Over there, Bosnian pyramid tunnels 20 to 40,000. So, no harmful cosmic radiations, no natural radioactivity, no WiFi signal, no cell phone signal. You enter the tunnels, it’s the best-preserved, the safest and most protected place on the planet. Our body cells without enemies from outside, they start doing their job. What is their job? The regeneration process, the self healing. The second purpose of pyramid energy — self healing, protection of what is the most important for us, our health. Number three, we are finding water in the pyramids tunnels. We analyzed. First, conventional — chemical, microbiological, no viruses, no bacterias. Ph, excellent: 7.5. We have done analysis at Dr. Masaru Emoto in Japan, late Masaru Emoto. Molecular structure of Bosnian pyramid water — beautiful, hexagonal. Hexagon is the most powerful geometrical shape when it comes to the energy. And beautiful crystal-like structures, like Christmas trees. Energetically alive water. What you and I drink, the bottled water, city water — energetically dead. Why? No viruses, no bacterias, but chlorine. Yes, it’s treated. Chlorine is poison … fluorides, poisons … traces okay, metals, poison. But what we have there, it is energetically alive, healthy water.

You need to bottle this stuff.

Dr. Semir Osmanagic
We bottle it and this is one of our sources of income. We need to cover 75 employees, archaeological digging. So water, tourists visit, we don’t receive a penny from the government and we are growing every year.

Tunnels onder de Piramides van Bosnië!

Archeologen voeren al 10 jaar opgravingen uit rond de Bosnische piramides. Onder de piramides hebben ze nu nieuwe ondergrondse tunnels aangetroffen. In eerder ontdekte tunnels stuitten ze op een bepaald moment op een groot rotsblok. Ze besloten een tunnel om de rots heen te graven.

De nieuwe tunnel werd verkend door een team bestaande uit zes mensen. Onderzoeksleider dr. Sam Osmanagich merkt op dat ondergrondse tunnels in Egypte, Mexico, China of Peru vaak trekpleisters worden en overal in het nieuws verschijnen. Hij zegt inmiddels 1550 meter tunnel te hebben blootgelegd. Het gaat volgens hem om tunnels die in een ver verleden door mensen zijn gemaakt.

Het eerste deel van de tunnels is ongeveer 1,20 meter hoog en op sommige plaatsen bereikt het water een hoogte van 30 centimeter. Er waren geen vertakkingen te vinden. Op de grond werden geen gereedschappen of artefacten gevonden. Er werden ook geen brandplekken gevonden. Wel werden er langwerpige stukken steen aangetroffen die door een archeoloog worden onderzocht. De tunnel eindigde na 41 meter in een waterpoel.

Eenmaal teruggekomen bij de ingang besloot het team ook de tegenovergestelde richting te verkennen. In dit deel van de tunnels stond het water een stuk hoger, tot ongeveer een meter. Na 17 meter kwam het team uit bij een splitsing. Het ene gedeelte werd geblokkeerd door een muur van gesteente, het andere leidde richting het oosten. Het water was ijskoud.

Osmanagich werd er eerder van beschuldigd dat hij de tunnels zelf zou hebben gegraven. In de video zegt hij dat het prehistorische tunnels zijn. Aan het einde van de tunnels werd een stuk hout gevonden. Een archeoloog nam enkele monsters voor analyse. Het stuk tunnel dat richting het oosten liep was in totaal 60 meter lang.

Het team wil nu de tunnel die richting het zuiden loopt, in de richting van de Zonnepiramide, beter begaanbaar maken. De onderzoekers vermoeden dat de tunnel deel uitmaakt van een labyrint, bestaande uit talloze tunnels.


The hills are located near the town of Visoko, northwest of Sarajevo. The town was Bosnia's capital during the Middle Ages, and ruins of a medieval fortress are located atop Visočica hill. [5] Given the defensive strategic value of hilltop locations, other civilizations built facilities at this site: the fortress was built over an old observation post of the Roman Empire, which, in turn, had been constructed on top of the ruins of a further more ancient settlement. [12] The hills are a type known as flatirons. Archaeological geologist Paul Heinrich of Louisiana State University has said that such formations are common throughout the world, for example, the so-called 'Russian Twin Pyramids' in Vladivostok, and there are many in the nearby region. [5]

In October 2005, Osmanagić and his supporters initiated a long-running media campaign to promote the pseudo-scientific belief that Visočica hill and the surrounding hills are an ancient pyramid complex. In an interview with Philip Coppens in Nexus (April–May 2006), Osmanagić suggested that they were most likely constructed by the Illyrians, who (according to Osmanagić) lived in the area from 12,000 BC to 500 BC. He has since argued that Visočica is an example of cultures building on top of other cultures. [12] In 2017 Osmanagić was reported to have claimed that the structures date back 34,000 years. [14]

In addition, Osmanagić claims that tunnels around the hill complex, which have been named Ravne tunnels, are an ancient man-made underground network. [12] [15] They are claimed to be 2.4 miles (3.8 km) long. [12] He claims to have found fossilised leaves in them dating back 34,000 years. [15]

Osmanagić supports a number of fringe claims, saying he discovered 'standing waves' at the top of the largest of the hills waves which he asserts travel faster than light and prove the existence of a 'cosmic internet' that allows for intergalactic communication. [16] He also promotes the idea of ancient astronauts, and claims that human beings are the product of genetic engineering. [14]

Osmanagić has given his own names to the hills. He has named the two largest hills as the 'Pyramid of the Sun' and the 'Pyramid of the Moon' (not to be confused with the genuine pyramids of the Sun and the Moon in Teotihuacan, Mexico). Other hills have been named by Osmanagić as the pyramids of 'Love,' 'the Earth,' and 'the Dragon.' [12] [5]

Local authorities have funded his excavations, and authorized visits to the 'pyramids' by school children, with guides telling them the hills are part of their Bosnian heritage. [1] The site has become a tourist destination. [17]

Osmanagić's methodology and alleged evidence

According to Osmanagić, the dig in 2006 involved an international team of archaeologists from Australia, Austria, Ireland, United Kingdom and Slovenia. [18] But, many archaeologists whom he named have stated they did not agree to participate and were never at the site. [19] Osmanagić also claimed the support of an "Oxford archaeologist," who was found to be an unqualified undergraduate. His foundation's website claimed support of a British Member of Parliament the name given was not that of any sitting member. [20]

Osmanagić claims that the direction of the hills reveals alignment to support ancient human cosmology. According to Enver Buza, a surveyor from Sarajevo’s Geodetic Institute, the "Pyramid of the Sun" is perfectly oriented to the north. [5] Osmanagić has said that the sides of the pyramid are oriented toward the cardinal points, and has claimed that this could not be produced by natural processes. [5]

Osmanagić's claims have also centred on alleged evidence concerning satellite photography, thermal analysis and radar detection. An article by Ian Traynor for The Guardian in 2006 reported that Osmanagić and his team alleged that their results from such research showed that the hills were not natural formations and that tunnels may exist inside the hills. [13]

According to Osmanagić, his excavations have produced evidence of blocks that he claims may be part of a man-made outer surface. [12] [13] Osmanagić claims that these blocks are made of a concrete poured on-site that was stronger than today's versions. [5] [13]

Osmanagić's claims have been repeatedly condemned by qualified scientists and archaeologists. Seven leading European archaeologists issued a European Association of Archaeologists Declaration stating:

We, the undersigned professional archaeologists from all parts of Europe, wish to protest strongly at the continuing support by the Bosnian authorities for the so-called "pyramid" project being conducted on hills at and near Visoko. This scheme is a cruel hoax on an unsuspecting public and has no place in the world of genuine science. It is a waste of scarce resources that would be much better used in protecting the genuine archaeological heritage and is diverting attention from the pressing problems that are affecting professional archaeologists in Bosnia-Herzegovina on a daily basis. [9]

The Declaration was signed by Hermann Parzinger, President of German Archaeological Institute in Berlin Willem Willems, Inspector General of Rijksinspectie Archeologie in The Hague Jean-Paul Demoule, President of the Institut nationale de recherches archéologiques préventives (INRAP) in Paris Romuald Schild, Director of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw Vassil Nikolov, Director of the Institute of Archaeology of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia Anthony Harding, President of the European Association of Archaeologists and Mike Heyworth, Director of the Council for British Archaeology in York. [9]

Osmanagić's assertions have been categorically refuted by a number of experts, who have accused him of promoting pseudo-scientific notions and damaging valuable archaeological sites with his excavations. Amar Karapuš, a curator at the Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo, said, "When I first read about the pyramids I thought it was a very funny joke. I just couldn't believe that anyone in the world could believe this." [5] Garrett Fagan of Penn State University is quoted as saying, "They should not be allowed to destroy genuine sites in the pursuit of these delusions[. ] It’s as if someone were given permission to bulldoze Stonehenge to find secret chambers of lost ancient wisdom underneath." [21]

Enver Imamović of the University of Sarajevo, a former director of the National Museum of Sarajevo, concerned that the excavations will damage historic sites such as the medieval royal capital Visoki, said that the excavations would "irreversibly destroy a national treasure". [22]

Excavations in the summer of 2008 by archaeologists who are not related to Osmanagić's Foundation uncovered medieval artifacts, which led to renewed calls for the government to cancel Osmanagić's digging permits. [23]

A former employee, Nadija Nukić, told a Bosnian newspaper that carvings on stones that Osmanagić characterizes as dating from ancient times were not present when the stones were first uncovered. They were later inscribed by Osmanagić's team. Osmanagić has denied this statement. [5]

Responses by archaeologists

Curtis Runnels, an American expert on prehistoric Greece and the Balkans from Boston University, states that the inhabitants of the area, to whom Osmanagić credits the building of the 'pyramids', were a primitive people who were small in number and who "did not have the tools or skills to engage in the construction of monumental architecture." [24] Runnels has said that cultures able to build large structures of that type emerged in the region only around 2,500 years ago, but did not construct such earthworks. [15] He has also pointed out that a pyramidal shape is resistant to certain forces it is a surviving, common form produced by natural causes. [14]

After visiting Visočica hill, [25] British professor Anthony Harding, president of the European Association of Archaeologists, wrote a letter to The Times (published 25 April 2006), referring to Osmanagić's theories as "wacky" and "absurd". He expressed concerns that the government of Bosnia had insufficient safeguards in place to protect the country's "rich heritage" from "looting and unmonitored or unauthorised development". [26]

Brian Stewart, assistant curator at the Museum of Anthropological Archaeology at the University of Michigan, said that "There were very worrying reports that he [Osmanagić] and his team have essentially sculpted the sides of these natural hills into something they think resembles pyramids, in the process stripping away sediment which contains layers of actual archaeology from mediaeval and earlier periods". [15]

In June 2006, archeologist Zahi Hawass, former Egyptian Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs, wrote a letter to Archaeology Magazine after his name became linked to the excavations. [27] Osmanagić had allegedly said that Hawass had recommended Egyptian geologist Aly Abdullah Barakat to investigate the hills. Hawass denied all involvement, accusing Osmanagić of spreading falsehoods in his letter he noted that Barakat had no archaeological knowledge or standing. He further noted that Osmanagić was totally wrong to claim that the Mayan civilization of Mesoamerica originated in Atlantis or the Pleiades constellation. [28]

Discovery Of Underground Bosnian Pyramid Tunnels

The tunnel complexes are vast and intricate and strangely at some point all the side entrances were sealed off by dry stone walling and fill material, there is the suggestion of some dating evidence that this was happening around 4,600 years ago according to the project leader Semir Osmanagić.

Because of everything that has surrounded this project it is going to be ignored by mainstream archaeology but i think that's unfortunate, he has in the past been accused of actually making the tunnels whereas he has claimed he is opening them up, and the evidence does suggest they were sealed and filled all along their length, so i think such accusations unfair.

The tunnels are created within compacted river conglomerate, the same material which was claimed as used as concrete on the Bosnian Pyramid, Semir Osmanagić suggests the material excavated from the tunnel construction was used for this, certainly it must all have ended up somewhere, but the purpose of the tunnels seems difficult to establish the only thing that could be extracted is river conglomerate material, stones, the mystery is furthur compounded by the discovery of megaliths within the tunnels, though those could have been within the ancient river bed itself.

The alternative theory for the tunnels in conjunction with the suggested pyramid above currently involves the generation of an energy beam the affects of which can allegedly be measured

The creation, purpose and sealing of the tunnels does require an answer, there may be a simple one but the evidence first needs to be properly considered, in some sense the half sealed chambers off the main passages resemble burial chambers, though no remains have been found and that is invalid if they extended furthur in length before closure, given some of the stone artifacts found and signs on monoliths there is some suggestion this could be related to Vinca culture, but more evidence is needed.

Anyway i'd like to discuss here what these tunnels could have been for and put aside the is it or is it not a pyramid question, the general shape of the natural hill could itself have marked the place as a sacred site.

That's the burning question. what purpose did the tunnels serve?
The subject is so taboo among armchair archaeologists that little information on artifacts can be found. Most endeavors of this size and age have all manner of debris from the scores of people necessary to complete them.

I wont make a guess based on what little I have, but I will watch the videos and thank you once again for the digging. Cheers!

The only reason i can think of for mining an ancient river bed would be if you were looking for secondary deposits of Gold so that would seem the most likely explanation i guess.

That's the conclusion reached here in Light at the end of the tunnel

Finally, on the subject of this particular hypothesis, we may note that Osmanagic, relying on the opinions of ‘experts’, categorically rejects - and we can understand why - the theory of ​​an ancient mine. The ‘experts’ in question are not experts in mining archeology, but coal miners from Zenica, and Dr. Sci. Enver Hasic, an expert in mine safety (bs). Hasic provides two arguments opposing the theory that this was ​​a mine. "No mineral deposits have been found" – but was a proper search conducted? Unlike coal, it is not usually possible to see deposits of gold with the naked eye. And: "all mines in Bosnia-Herzegovina have been documented". However, I very much doubt if all ancient mines really have been documented . especially in the case of a working that might have been a rather artisanal mine, perhaps led by a small group of villagers working independently. A survey of older residents of the sector might turn up something, if the mine in question was in use forty or fifty years ago - and if oral tradition has not already been displaced by the ‘Osmanagician’ version of local history. The tedious job of extracting information from the local archives, if they still exist, might also provide some information on how the Ravne tunnel was used. It goes without saying that, although, before proceeding to excavate, a team of serious archaeologists would have carried out work of this sort in order to amass as much information as possible about the context, there is small chance of the Foundation undertaking any such exercise.

Whatever happens, the search for the ‘structure’ recently revealed by GPR will perhaps help to throw at least a little more light on the subject of the Ravne tunnel. If it reveals the tomb of a king and a queen dating to several thousand years ago, I will have to eat my hat . If it turns out to be a cache of resistance weapons dating to the 1940s, we will at least have cleared up the question of recent use of the tunnel, although without obtaining any information about its origin. Is there a possibility that it might be a mining structure, such as a pit with the remains of timbers? Time will tell, probably very soon

Just more evidence that the groups controlling our world would like discredited as it undermines the historical narrative they have provided for us which doesn't include the many ancient advanced civilizations that once existed on this earth:

I apologize OP for getting slightly off-topic but of course this is all related.

I never thought this was just an ordinary mountain that happened to line up perfectly with the compass points as the disinfo agents would have you believe:

Or perhaps they've barely "scratched the surface" and eventually the will discover a Kings/queens chamber and perhaps even a gallery.

. the last item of interest, which will perhaps shortly throw some light on the question, is the discovery by ground penetrating radar, on 23rd July, about 90 metres from the entrance of the tunnel, of the possible presence of a structure buried in the earth

GPR images are very difficult to interpret, but, although it is far too early to offer any suggestions about the nature of this anomaly, it is very unlikely to be an object of natural origin.:

Or maybe they extracted all the gold and created an idol of two golden fish kissing, then buried it.

But seriously the mines could date back to the Vinca period as they were very keen on mining and metallurgy.

10 Reasons to Visit Visoko

To go back in time and visit places where Bosnian kings used to rule, the place where the Povelja Kulina Bana (Charter of Ban Kulin) was written, represents an unusual and unreal experience for those who love history. The fact that this was the crowning place and burial place of the first Bosnian king Tvrtko I Kotromanić (1377 – 1391) and other Bosnian rulers, the place where the National Assembly was held, the place where official documents were issued and stored, a religious center with the first Franciscan monastery and vicarage in Bosnia, the place where numerous documents and charters were written, confirms that this area was and is an unavoidable place in the millennial tradition of the formation of the state. The locality of Mili/Arnautovići was declared a national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2003.

In written records, the old town of Visoko was first mentioned on 01. 09. 1355 in the Charter of Ban Tvrtko I to the residents of Dubrovnik, but it is considered to have existed a lot earlier. It is one of the earliest examples of medieval urbanism in the region of Bosnia, and along with Mile/Arnautovići, it is thought to be the center of medieval Bosnia. Apart from its military and defense function, it served as a temporary residence of the Bosnian ruler, the throne of the Great Bosnian Prince, and it also served as a trade center with a suburb at its base called Podvisoki, from which the Visoko center ( čaršija ) gradually developed. Considering its historical significance, it was declared a national monument in 2004, and it is part of the cultural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

A thousand years of recorded history and hundreds of traces of different cultures and civilizations, which have alternated for centuries in this region, have affected the Visoko valley so that it is abundant in cultural heritage and impressive places of worship, which testify of years of coexistence of peoples of different beliefs and religions. Three symbols of the town, three striking places of worship, serve as witnesses of tolerance and equality: the Franciscan monastery of St. Bonaventura , the Church of St. Prokopije and Tabhanska/Tabačka Mosque.

National monuments serve as witnesses of the long and rich history of Visoko, and they are part of the cultural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina, so we must point them out one by one: Old town Visoki, Mili- the crowning and burial Church of Bosnian Kings, Okolište- Neolithic settlement, Tabhanska/Tabačka Mosque, the Church of St. Prokopije, the Franciscan Monastery of St. Bonaventura and the Old Mosque with a harem in Goduša. The Heritage Museum of Visoko is a significant factor, working each day on the protection, preservation and promotion of the cultural heritage of this area.

Visoko is well-known as a place of trade and crafts, and the merchants there are considered to be among the best. Even today, Visoko is best known for leather and fur, cured meat, and traditional crafts from the regions of Goduša and Liješevo, which are thought to make the prettiest souvenirs. If you are a fan of these products, antiques, handmade items, you should visit the shops in Visoko, which are full of a rich and diverse offer of goods.

You cannot come to Visoko, without noticing White Mosque of worship, which attracts the attention of all visitors, regardless of their religion and nationality. The mosque was designed by famous Bosnian-Herzegovinian architect Zlatko Ugljen, and he received the prestigious Aga Khan world architecture award for it in 1983. It is listed at the very top of the best-designed places of worship, and in 2007 it was recognized by Hungarian architects, who listed it among the three best-designed places of worship in Europe.

The Bosnian valley of pyramids consists of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun (Visočica), which is a lot higher than the Great Pyramid of Giza at over 220 meters, then there is the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon (Plješevica), which has a height of 190 meters, the Pyramids of the Bosnian Dragon (Buci) that are 90 meters in height, and the elevation of the Temple of Mother Earth (Krstac) and the Pyramids of Love (Cemerac), and there is also Tumulus in Vratnica. Apart from the prehistoric underground tunnel of Ravne, and park Ravne 2, a new network of tunnels was discovered, Ravne 3 and Ravne 4. All these activities mean that each year tens of thousands of visitors come from various parts of the world to Visoko, and that number goes up each year.

The archaeological and tourist park Ravne 2 was founded in 2016 and represents the central place of gathering for locals, as well as tourists, as that is where most events that take place throughout the year are held. The park consists of numerous stone installations (circles, megaliths), a spiral botanical garden, a labyrinth of energy and love, recreational trails, children’s playgrounds, a multimedia hall, a pyramid, stages for yoga and meditation, a concert stage with a natural amphitheater with a capacity for 5000 visitors, a rose’s triple heart, an alley of organic fruits, and numerous other installations, as well as toilets and parking. All this makes it one of the most attractive tourist and archaeological parks in Bosnia and Herzegovina and beyond. Entrance to the park is free of charge, and making use of all the activities on offer and the installations is also free of charge.

Numerous excursion sites of Visoko, such as: Ravne, Gorani, Zbilje, tourist and archaeological park Ravne 2, the attractive watercourses of the Bosna and Fojnica Rivers, and countless other natural phenomena and terrain are the ideal foundation for an active vacation, i.e. outdoor and adventure tourism. The areas that are suitable for hunting, fishing, camping, mountaineering, hiking, running, horse riding, mountain biking, rafting, and sports, recreational and excursion tourism are just some of the possibilities that the natural tourist potential of Visoko offers locals, as well as tourists in search of an adventure.

Visoko is one of the towns of Bosnia where the tradition and customs of ancestors has been nurtured since ancient times, and that is also the case with the culinary offer. The main culinary products that this town is known for abroad are certainly pies and ćevapi . Another recognizable Visoko brand is their cured meat and sujuk, as the culinary offer of Visoko is unimaginable without them. Taste and enjoy the magic of the rich Bosnian cuisine, which will motivate you to return to Visoko.
