Martin Brod waterfalls
Martin Brod is the first major village in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Una National Park through which the river runs. It is located at the exit from the two canyons, at the point where the Una tributary flows into the river of Una.
With numerous tufa canals, fast currents, islands and a few waterfalls, this location is one of the most beautiful and attractive parts of the river of Una and the national park of the same name. This is also the home of the biggest waterfall on Una; it is some 54 meters high and makes for beautiful larger and smaller waterfalls and cascades.
According to the legend, the village was named after a young girl, Marta, who was in love with a soldier. As she was crossing the river to reach her beloved, a strong current pulled her into the water and she drowned. And as for brod? Brod is what the people of this region call any passage over the river.
