Tušnica (Bosnia and Herzegovina)

Mount Tušnica (highest peak Vitrenik , 1697 m) is located in the southeast of the municipality of Livno in Bosnia and Herzegovina . It is a popular destination, especially for mountaineers.

Below the mountain is the Rudnici Tušnica mine, founded in 1888 . It is divided into three companies: a coal -Tagebau, a lignite -Tagebau and a quarry . The total production in 1998 was 37,500 t. Due to the large reserves (approx. 600 million tons) of brown coal in the municipalities of Livno and Tomislavgrad , a thermal power plant is planned in the area .

Transmitting systems at the summit send signals from Bosnian television and radio programs. There is also a cell phone transmitter on the mountain. The power supply of the transmission systems is ensured via the village of Prisoje . At the beginning of the Bosnian War , on May 8, 1992, the transmission systems were destroyed by the Yugoslav People's Army by a rocket attack, but were later rebuilt.
