This beautiful river joins bigger river Krivaja just 6 kilometers from Olovo. Long just 6 kilometers river Orlja passes natural decline of about 250 meters from it's source to the mouth of Krivaja river through a beautiful and deep canyon which is developed during thousands of years. This large drop in altitude makes this river very fast with a lot of waterfalls and cascades while entire canyon is filled with Orlja's rumble while racing toward Krivaja river.
Waterfall in the canyon
The Roman Bridge
At the top of the canyon visitors will find strange stone bridge called by the locals "The Roman Brigde". Nobody knows the exact time of it's creation but the bridge has such a shape that it is impossible to pass over with any type of vehicle.
Hot and cold springs
This river is also specific for the fact that surfaces the earth from two springs that is located 50 meters from each other. One spring has ice cold water while the other has hot thermal water that has temperature of 24 degrees Celsius.
Spring of cold water
Cold water emerges from the cave
Scientific research has determined that the river Orlja emerges from the water that disappears into a cave complex on Bijambare. On this site you can find a facility that was built before war which was used for the purposes of spa tourism as a health resort, but now the building is in pretty bad shape and out of function.
One of the hot springs
A little further is a new facility that has not jet been put in real operation and it is still relatively unknown to the public.
