Titova Pećina, Drvar
Bosnia and Herzegovina

Tito's Cave (Titova pećina) is a small cave of little speleologic interest. There is a path from Drvar, with many steps, up the hill to the cave entrance. The cave has a nice view across the city of Drvar. During spring there is a cave river flowing out of the cave, so it is impossible to visit the cave during snow melt. The rest of the year the cave is dry.


The great importance of this cave is its history. It was the hideout of Tito (Josip Broz) and his communist partisans at the end of World War II. During Operation Rösselsprung (Knight's Leap) the Germans attacted Dvar. It was one of three occasions where the Germans were close to kill Tito. However, despite the massive attack they could not catch him. A legend tells he was saved by his loyal dog, who sacrificed himself.

Later in communist Yugoslavia this cave was a sort of national shrine and a popular tourist destination. During this era the town Drvar, where it is located, was renamed Titov Drvar. During the war the cave was abandoned and almost forgotten. Now, in the attempt to intensify tourism in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the cave was refurbished and reopened. The renovation was made by Drvar authorities, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
