The Buynovsko Zhdrelo is a famous limestone gorge, which is located near Yagodina. The gorge was cut by the river Buynovska and has several narrow and steep parts. One section is especially narrow, it was rather difficult to construct the single lane road part and numerous tunnels were necessry.

The most narrow spot of the gorge is called Wolf's Jump after a legend. The locals tell the story that hungry wolfs in winter came here and jumped across the gorge to attack the herds on the other side. The place actually looks like it could be possible to jump, but we strongly discourage you to try.
