In October 2005, Bosnian-American Semir Osmanagic claimed to have discovered the oldest pyramids on Earth in the former Yugoslavia built by an advanced ancient civilization. Osmanagic believes the group of hills near Sarajevo in central Bosnia and Herzegovina will transform what we know about civilization as he claims they predate those built by the Mayans or Egyptians. The largest pyramid in the town of Visoko named the Pyramid of the Sun stands taller than the Pyramid of Giza at 722 feet.
Osmanagic has established non-profit and non-government “Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun” Foundation to pursue the excavation and geo-archaeological work.
The “Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids” features the most massive structure, the Pyramid of the Sun, and also the Pyramid of the Moon at 350 feet, the Temple of Mother Earth, and the Pyramid of the Dragon.
“The Bosnian pyramid valley is the most monumental construction complex ever built on the face of the planet,” Osmanagich declared on a YouTube video.
“It was built by the unknown civilization 12,000 years ago.”
Today, volunteer amateur archaeologists are still making their way to the site and taking part in the excavations. Other visitors believe that site has unique qualities that are healing and take part in meditation in botanical gardens. They believe the mountains have a spiritual quality.
The Bosnian Pyramids have been a source of consternation for some archeologists and geologists, who believe the site to be naturally-occurring formations called Flatirons. Instead of ancient man-made structures, these archeologists believe the Bosnian Pyramids are more of a pyramid scheme.

In 2006, the European Association of Archaeologists wrote an open letter to the Bosnian government denouncing the pyramids as a “cruel hoax on an unsuspecting public.”
However, the criticism did not stop Osmanagich, who over a decade later claims that the Pyramid of the Sun is covered in concrete that is superior to modern building materials and that the inside of the mountain is a network of elaborate tunnels containing enormous ceramic sculptures and other ancient relics dating back over 34,000 years.
Discover documented his claim that the pyramids were created to amplify positive energy fields, a key to long life and free energy.
“Osmanagich also says he knows why the Bosnian pyramids were built. He claims they are energy amplifiers, capable of improving health and prolonging life — as well as communicating with “torsion fields” that travel much faster than the speed of light.”
“Naturally, these remarkable feats could be achieved only by a society far ahead of our own. “They knew energy sources and frequencies better than we do, and how clean and free energy can be produced,” Osmanagich says.”

You can find out more about the Pyramids of Bosnia in the Amazon Prime documentary, “The Pyramid: Finding the Truth.” The narrator questions if the Pyramid of the Sun was built due to religion and worshipping the Sun god similar to the pyramids of Egypt.
According to Express, from the UK:
“The hill Visocica or Pyramid of the Sun has been known for centuries to be a Hill of the Kings in medieval times there was a royal town on the top of it.
The complex of tunnels underneath the Pyramid of the Sun displays astonishing similarity to the religious requirements that Egyptian pyramids had to fulfill.”
Today, Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation Field Geologist Richard Hoyle is leading a team of international volunteers who are excavating the Bosnian Pyramids today. Below, he shares a video of his latest finds. He has worked at the site since 2010.
If you interested in the pyramids and want to take part in the excavations, you can find information on how to take part at the website for the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation.
“Work with qualified archaeologist excavating a site the local state museum now recognizes. No other archaeological site in the world let non-qualified people work on excavations,” says Hoyle.
Hoyle says that volunteers can work as little or as much as they want and should be open-minded, physically fit, and adventurous. Work for the summer begins in June 2019.
“The social side is also fun, dinner on top of pyramid drinking rakia made from fruit grown on the pyramid. You don’t get that every day,” he says.
We’ll leave it up to the reader to decide if they believe these pyramids are made by ancient humans or are actually naturally occurring formations like the European Association of Archaeologists believe. Whatever the case, it’s certainly a fascinating story.
