Lukomir

In the mountains above Sarajevo at about 1500 meters lies Lukomir, the most remote village in all of Bosnia. The village consists mainly of nomadic sheep herders. During the summer months you will find a population of less than 20 people, a few dogs, and an abundance of sheep. In the winter a few sheep, and even fewer people remain due to harsh conditions and inaccessibility. Being deemed unstrategic by the Serbs, Lukomir is one of the only areas that remain untouched during the war of the 1990’s. The population of the village is slowly disappearing. With children leaving to attend school elsewhere and not coming back, what is the future of this village? After this current generation of elders is gone the village will be empty. Lukomir will be another old world village gone desolate due to modern life found in the city.
