World's Largest Pyramid - Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun

Near the city of Visoko, 30km north of capital Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, scientist have discovered the First European pyramids. Numerous layers of evidence and recentinternational verification have proven that the mound Visocica represents an ancient colossal structure with a readily recognizable pyramid shape.
The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun (Visocica Hill), is the first European pyramid to be discovered and is located in the heart of Bosnia, in the town of Visoko. The pyramid has all the elements: four perfectly shaped slopes pointing toward the cardinal points, a flat top and an entrance complex. On top of the pyramid are also the ruins of a Medieval walled town, once the base of a Bosnian king Tvrtko of Kotromanic (1338-1391).

Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun (former Visocica), with its height of over 220 meters, is one third taller than the Great pyramid of Egypt. Four sides of the pyramid are perfectly aligned with the cardinal points (North-South, East-West).North side of the pyramid is oriented towards stellar north (like the Great Pyramid of Egypt), in parallel with position of the North Star.

Numerous scientific analysis suggest artificiality of the monument: satellite imagery, thermal inertia analysis that shows quick heat loss due toinner chambers and hallways; penetrating radar suggests straight passageways with 90 degrees intersections; water drainage and inner angles of 45 degrees characteristic for artificial objects. Geo-archaeological research uncovered man-made stone blocks that the pyramid walls.

Between 27,000 and 12,000 years ago, the Balkans were locked in the last Glacial maximum, a period of very cold and dry climate with glaciers in some of the mountain ranges. The only occupants were Upper Paleolithic hunters and gatherers who left behind open-air camp sites and traces of occupation in caves. These remains consist of simple stone tools, hearths, and remains of animals and plants that were consumed for food. These people did not have the tools or skills to engage in the construction of monumental architecture.


In the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids is situated also: a Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, Bosnian Pyramid of Love, Bosnian Pyramid of Dragon and complex tunnel RavnaBelow we describethe Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon and the complex of tunnels Ravna.

Former Pljesevica hill represents typical step-pyramid named the Bosnian Pramid of the Moon. Initial digging uncovered the foundation, terraces, plateau on the top of the pyramid, vertical wall and rectangular structure under one meter thick layer of soil. Four sides of the pyramid align with the cardinal sides (North-South, East-West). Thermal inertia analysis shows much quicker heat-loss than surrounding natural hills. Sandstone plates and blocks are exclusive building material used by the pyramid builders. During last 100 years locals have used those plates as a "quarry". Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, together with Sun and Dragon pyramids form a perfect triangle with 60 degrees inner angles.

Initial research and local legends suggest that the whole net of underground tunnels exist under the Bosnian Pyramid Valley. Working hypothesis is that these tunnels connect all pyramids and other sites of importance. Researched area of one of the tunnel sections show intersections at 90 degrees, man-made ceilings and chambers and ventilation shafts. Several man-made sandstone monoliths have been found with symbols that might represent first European writings.

Mounting evidence from the 2010 excavations at the Bosnian Pyramids in Visoko, suggest that they are indeed man made structures and not a hoax!(video below)
