It’s been over a year since the whole Bosnian pyramid media fuss started. Still, many talk about the possible discovery of Europe’s first step pyramid complex. The event is significant for Bosnia & Herzegovina’s recovery, as it brings positive media attention and money into this poor and wounded country. Some disagree that the pyramid exploration followed by unique Balkan patriotism could be positive. After the findings proving that the structures below the hills had been made by humans, this part of the globe received additional media attention. Just 30 kilometers northwest of the capital city Sarajevo, in Visoko area, an archeological park has been set up. Founder of the whole undertaking, Semir Osmanagic, says the pyramid is at least 2,500 years old and may even date to the last ice age.
Sean Markey of the National Geographic began his report by saying this about Osmanagic:
He’s been called a Balkan Indiana Jones. Others label him a dreamer, or worse, a pyramid buff with loony ideas.
Genijalci narrates the beginning of the story that shook the whole Bosnia (BIH):
Long time ago people at Visoko built the pyramids. The pyramid of the Sun is located at Visocica hill while the pyramid of the Moon is placed below Plesevica hill and the third pyramide of Bosnian Dragon is on the right side. Research aiming to prove the theory is being carried out at the moment. […] Detailed examination started on April 14, 2006. In April 2005, Semir Osmanagic, a US-based [businessman] and explorer paid a visit to the Visoko museum. Professor Senad Hodovic explained everything concerning the medieval Bosnia. He told him about the rocky remains of the old Visoko town and the legend about the three thrones of kings; the hill has a rare pyramidal shape which is an atypical phenomenon. Semir Osmanagic got interested in the affair. As an explorer, Osmanagic visited many locations throughout the world with similar sets of pyramids. He then acquired a license to conduct drills. He saw numerous anomalies pointing there might be a pyramid below the surface of the hill.
