Drvar is famous for a partisan victory over an elite unit of German paratroopers. Tito and his brave partisans were hiding out in a cave (now called Tito Cave).
German surveillance recorded no sign of resistance and when the paratroopers landed they were met by the partisans and wiped out.




Drvar had been defended and this battle became the highlight of the partisan recruitment scheme which asserted that the Germans could be defeated by heart and wit. Today, Tito's Cave is the only tourist attraction in the sleepy town of Drvar. The area around Drvar is incredibly beautiful, with one of the largest forests in the country. Its isolated geographic position hosts an untouched wildlife population and some of the most stunning water sources in the region.

A real highlight is the source and gorge of the River Unac, towards Bosansko Grahovo to the southwest. The gorge is named Bastacica after the village of Bastihe. The villagers of Bastihe were the courageous partisan defenders of Drvar. To the northwest by the town of Martin Brod are the waterfalls and cascades of the River Unac, which eventually connects with the Una River. The Rmanj Orthodox Monastery is in Martin Brod and most likely dates from the 16th century when a large migration of Serbs came to the frontier. The Lom Klekovacka Forest Reserve is among the largest forests in the country.
