Picnic Areas

Rohalj Bases Picnic Area

The Rohalj Bases picnic area got its name from the underground bases, ie. the hiding place of the local residents that fled from Divoš, Ležimir and other villages nearby during World War 2. The shelters were placed at the then-owned land of family Rohalj from Divoš, so that's how it got the first part of its name. This is where the partisan squads were hiding in dugouts, so this place was a freed zone. Right by the road is the monument-house, raised in 1972, where National Liberation War's exhibits were displayed. Today it's abandoned and most of the exhibits were transferred to the Srem Museum in Semska Mitrovica. Not far away from the house, by way of a small brick rode, is the monument-graveyard dedicated to the victims of the war.

This location today is a favourite picnic spot of locals from Divoš and nearby villages. Spending a night in the nearby forest during the 1. May holiday is especially popular. There are a lot of mountain springs in the vicinity. A few kilometres away is the Kuveždin and Đipša, and there's a lovely view from the slopes, from where you can see the Divoš village and the Srem plains. During a clear day you can even see the mountains Cer and Majevica.
