The numerous Dragić family lives in harmony in the village of Gornja Bijela, together with their sons and grandchildren. All three of their sons are police officers, which makes their grandparents very proud. Grandma and grandpa are in the village during the winter, but when the summer comes, they go up to the katun with the cattle. The younger ones stay to take care of the house in the village, and their grandson Vuk and granddaughter Masha take their role seriously and spend almost all their time in the village and help with various household chores.
Family is primarily engaged in agriculture; their main income comes from it. They have a flock of sheep, goats, and cows, which spend the summer months on the katun. In the village, they have a garden where they grow various vegetables, such as potatoes, onions, parsley. An orchard is situated next to the house, many plum trees, apples and pears are planted there, and the fruit is used to make various jams, preserves, as well as the brandy, served only in the household. Also, one of the specialties of this household is the walnut tree, whose fruit is used for making treats.
The village of Gornja Bijela is located near the motorway leading from Nikšić to Žabljak, which connects the central and northern part of Montenegro.
The Monastery of St. Georgije gives the special charm of the village, it is about 1,000 years old, and it was built by Prince Vladimir Dukljanski.
The river Bijela’s waterfall called Crnjak is set close to the household, and during the spring (when the snow melts) and during rainy summer days it enchants the visitors. And on hot, summer days, the natural pool on the river is used by the locals, they swim and try to cool down a bit. Also, one of the natural attractions is the source of the river Bijela, which is located 300m from the house. For true adrenaline junkies, there is a possibility to go through the river canyon, which has become increasingly popular in recent period.
At about 10 km from the village, a wind farm was built, which is a real sensation with its windmills.
Also, organization of field trips, such as circular jeep tours, sport fishing on the river, and so on are included in the household’s offer. Several biking and walking trails can be found very close to the village.
