The stone-made homes, wooden roofs, women still wearing traditional clothes are main characteristics of local life from April until December when the village is approachable. Settled at the height of 1.495 m on the top of Bjelasnica Mountain, Lukomir has stayed out of human touch and represents the most traditional nomadic lifestyle.
Indeed, access to the village is impossible from the first snows in December until late April and sometimes even later, except by skis or on foot.
Lukomir is known for its traditional attire, and the women still wear the hand-knitted costumes that have been worn for centuries.
