Christmas Tree Decorated in Vranjača Pit on Kamešnica (VIDEO)

December 23, 2021 - Organized by members of the St. Jakov Mountaineering Society Speleo section from Bitelić and the HGSS Sinj branch, after last year's first Christmas tree decoration in the Krstača pit on Vrdovo, in accordance with tradition, a unique Christmas tree was decorated in the Vranjača pit in the Kamešnica area, about 50 meters deep, on Saturday, December 19. 

The Dinaric area is full of sinkholes, hidden pits, and caves, which unfortunately are often targeted by irresponsible individuals, and instead of serving a natural purpose, they are often turned into illegal dumps of various types of waste. This speleological section, in cooperation with numerous colleagues from all over Croatia, organized several ecological actions to clean the pits throughout the year and preserve them.

With the anticipation of Christmas, members of the St. Jakov Bitelić speleo section and the HGSS branch office in Sinj contributed to this year's Christmas mood and decorated the Christmas tree in a pit about 50 meters deep, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy and successful New Year.
