Geographical position of UNKA
The eco-touristic settlement UNKA is situated between the villages Kulen Vakuf and Martin Brod, directly next to Una riverside. It belongs to the Una-Sana canton, in North-West Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Northern Dinaric Alps and borders with Croatia. The climate is continental with relatively short cold winters and hot summers.
Almost 50% of the mountainous canton is covered with woods. 40% of the region is used for agriculture, pasture-ground and fruit plantation. Una-Sana canton got its name thanks to its two biggest rivers Una and Sana. The most important resource, besides flora and fauna, is the supply of fresh, clean water. There are many legends associated with the emerald-green river Una which most of the time passes through narrow canyons. Locals see this river as a part of their family. It is thus not surprising that the landmark of the canton’s capital Bihac is the “Maiden of the Una”.
Besides that, river Una and "her" tributaries offer the possibility of practical use. The International Una-Regatta has been the major event for over 40 years. Thanks to many rapids and numerous cascades, rafting on river Una is just an unforgettable experience.
