Whoever was next to the Una River in the afternoon, one of the most beautiful rivers in Bosnia and Herzegovina, could witness a natural phenomenon – a cloud formed above the river.
Science says that it is fog, which is formed by evaporation processes, sufficient condensation cores and cooling.
Anyway, the fog briefly hid the beauty of Una, Avaz news portal reports.
The Una is a border river between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia and a right tributary of the Sava river. It is part of the Black Sea drainage basin, and its watershed has a size of 10.200 km², of which 8.080 km² belongs to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and 2.120 km² to Croatia.
The total length of the river is 212 km. The source of the river is located in the town of Donja Suvaja in Croatia, and its mouth is located near the town of Jasenovac, on the border with Bosnia.
The largest right tributaries are the Krka, Unac, Krušnica and Sana rivers, and the largest left tributary is the Klokot river. Its longest headwater is the Unac river.
The largest and most important city located on the river is Bihać. Other, smaller cities and towns are Bosanska Krupa, Novi Grad and Kostajnica. The river is characterized by a multitude of waterfalls, rapids, karst springs and relatively untouched nature. A large part of the upper river is part of the Una National Park.
