The cave Red Rock (wall) is located near village Petrovići, Nikšić town council, on the border between Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The cave was opened in 1954 and since then it is considered the biggest cultural object of the Paleolithic over the whole Balkan peninsular with the exceptionally well preserved remnants of material culture. It presents a rock protecting apron at the height of 700m above the sea with a wide gateway 24m and a small depth 15m.
Primitive men have been living in cave since Paleolithic and have been staying there for many centuries. About 20 people have been living in cave at the same time, who were hunting and fishing. The archeologists have opened 31 occupation layers, which prove the story of this place better than words. Stone items are considered the most precious findings, which count more than 250 thousand years. Other labor tools were made out of ceramics and animals and fish bones. The archeologists have managed to find here about 5 thousand material proves of the existence of primitive men.
In 1500 B.C. this accommodation was abandoned and forgotten for long millenniums.
