About viewpoint Biljeska stena
The lookout is at 1225 meters above sea level and is located on the border of the nature reserve "Zvezda". It overlooks Lake Perucac, the Drina Valley and the beginning of the canyon, as well as Osat and the settlement of Klotjevac. These areas are rich in trees of Pancic spruce, hundred-year-old pines, mixed forests and canyon vegetation that is specific to the area. Due to climate change, Pancic spruce trees have been drying up in recent years.
The lookout is protected by a fence and is equipped with wooden tables and benches that are ideal for a break and a short picnic. Near Biljeska stena is a hut that was built for the purpose of shooting the film Some Birds Can’t Fly. The hut is used freely today and can be visited.
