View on Busko LakePhoto: Eko-selo Grabovica, http://www.ecoselograbovica.com/
The highlights are magnificent vistas on Busko lake, several archeological spots and the eco-ethno village Grabovica. Besides hiking, this can also be a nice biking route, and there are also possibilities of crossing lakes in kayaks and canoes.
As the border crossing point at Vaganj (pass between Troglav and Kamesnica) is just for locals and is not an international border point, the last stage of the Croatian and first stage of the Bosnian Via Dinarica follows a pilgrim’s trail: the Our Lady of Sinj Route (http://www.stazagospisinjskoj.eu) . This will remain as the main White trail probably until Bosnia and Herzegovina joins the EU and Schengen treaty.
A recommended stop is eco-ethno village Grabovica, in fact a great holiday resort. This first BiH stage of White Trail Via Dinarica will end at locality of Little Gradac, where it will split from the Our Lady of Sinj Route.

Continue from border crossing point Prisika to Gornja Prisika, and by Vrtline the route goes left. From Kazaginici head towards the lake and Marinovac beach, and from there right towards Bukova Gora and continue on the road. One can keep following the road or turn left to Carmel of Saint Elijah and continue to Lonica Kuca in order to join the road. Follow the road for another couple of kilometers and turn again towards the lake to the beach which has a dock. From there follow the road up towards resort Grabovica, and from there follow the local road back to the main road R417. The road comes to Karlov Han where you turn left over the bridge to Prisoje.
From the center of Prisoje, go right to Brljevci till the end, and then continue on the dirt road through the pine forest uphill passing the resting area and viewpoint. The trail will join again the main road where this stage ends. Close by, across the road (on the way of the White Trail Via Dinarica stage 2) is Iliric “Gradina”-remnants of old Illyrian settlement.
