The ‘Hobbit Village’ of five houses, built by four sisters living in Kresevo to promote the town they were born in, bears traces of both the ‘Middle World’ and the culture of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In Kresevo, in the central part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, houses buried in the ground known as “Hobbit Houses” that attract attention with their interesting architecture will open their doors to visitors in the summer months.
The decoration of Hobbit Houses, depicted as the places where hobbits live, Erg, in the fantasy world of Middle-earth by world-famous author J.R.R.R. Tolkien, is made by four Bosnian sisters.
The sisters, who want to promote Kresevo, where they were born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, aim to contribute to tourism and offer tourists an extraordinary experience by creating a hobbit village consisting of five houses.
Maria Milicevic, who came up with the idea for the hobbit house, told Anadolu Agency (AA) that she is a geoengineer and said she received the greatest support from her family and sisters in drawing and building “smiling” houses from the ground.
Each sister decorates the house
Maria said that each of the sisters bought a house and decorated it the way she wanted, and said that two houses were finished and the remaining three were nearing completion.
Maria stated that she wanted to create such a place because of her interest in traveling to different countries and staying in unusual places, “We wanted to do something different. These houses came to mind. We designed hobbit houses built in New Zealand, but we wanted to reflect the spirit of Chrysefu in each house.” “. He said.
Noting that they started building the hobbit houses in February, Maria states that the works will be finished by the spring months.
Maria said she called the hobbit house Uber, which she built herself, and said, “It was named after Uber’s Cave, where mercury was once mined. All the details in the house are also associated with mercury. We made a roof similar to the roof of a cave.” He said.
Expressing that she decided to leave the decoration of the house to her parents, Maria said that interest in hobbit houses is growing, and those who love hobbits visit these houses.
We take people back to the past.
Another sister, Miljana Milicevic, an architect, said she named her house “Linden” and said that linden is a plant associated with a happy childhood and with nature.
Meliana, who said that she took up the stage of painting houses because of her profession, said that it was a difficult task to build a house buried underground.
Miligana, noting that people are interested in what is “different” lately, “we are taking people to the past. They also have their own privacy.” He said.
Meliana said the craftsmen who worked on building the hobbits’ homes were very surprised by the project. He said.
While the third sister, Vedrana Milicevic, is building a Hobbit-style house based on the town where Katarina, one of Bosnia’s queens, lived, Valentina Millicevic designs a mountain-themed decoration.
