The Bosnian Pyramid, 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.
There are also the ruins of a Medieval walled town, once the base of a Bosnian king Tvrtko of Kotromanic (1338-1391).
Because of its similarities to the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico, it has been named the “Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun” ('Bosanska Piramida Sunca'). There are also a four more ancient structures on the site:
'We have already dug out stone blocks which I believe are covering the pyramid', said Semir (Sam) Osmanagic, a Bosnian American archaeologist who has spent the last 15 years studying the pyramids of Latin America.
Satellite, aerial photographs and geographic maps show that Visocica hill has four sides like other existing pyramids around the world. All four sides are identical with the points of the compass, facing north, south, east and west.
The pyramid plateau, which measures 27m
x 420m, is paved with stone slabs.
These blocks have been cut by human hand, transported to the site,
and then used to build the plateau of Visočica. Each slab is about
10cm thick, on average.
Technology including satellite photography and thermal imaging is
being used to develop a better understanding of the site’s hidden

The pyramid walls are built from the megalita breče stone. Blocks of different sizes are typically used to build pyramids. These stone blocks have been excavated some 150 m away from the apex of the pyramid.
Further excavations are underway in the surrounding areas to map the blocks and underground tunnels.
