Neither the freezing, choppy waters, nor the high altitude were enough to put off over 120 people from taking part in this year’s Bunarfest. Bunarfest, which by now has been running for seven years, is an annual competition held in the Sharr mountains. It involves using tractor, truck or bus tyres to navigate down the Bistrica river and travel four kilometres in the shortest possible time. The race begins at a former power plant (now a museum), and passes below the monastery of the Holy Archangels - the legacy of Emperor Dušan from the XIV century - all the way down to the Stone bridge in the town centre of Prizren.
