Map / Sutjeska National Park

Sutjeska National Park is the oldest and largest national park in BiH and its great worth and beauty makes it a true gem of Bosnia and Herzegovina.  It includes the area of Sutjeska in which also lies the Strict Nature Reserve Perućica, parts of mountains Maglić (2,386 m- highest peak in BiH), Volujak, Vučevo and Zelengora. Thanks to its well-kept, exceptional natural values, since 2000 NP Sutjeska has been listed in Category II of IUCN (UN department for conservation of nature and natural wealth).

NP Sutjeska is the most diverse complex of ecosystems in BiH and one of most diverse in South-Eastern Europe.  It is characterized by exceptional beauty and a diversity of landscapes, ranging from mild valleys, dense forest complexes, mountain pastures to high mountain massifs found throughout the Park.  On Zelengora Mountain there are eight glacial lakes popularly called “mountain eyes”, and other notable features of the area include the deep canyons of Sutjeska, Hrčavka and Jabučnica and crystal clear mountain rivers rich in brook trout.  The fundus of wild life and rare plants, some of them endemic, is rich and precious.  In the very heart of the park is the Strict Nature Reserve Perućica (1,434 ha), the best-preserved and largest rainforest in Europe, where any element of human intervention has been strictly forbidden since the National Park was established.

Many monuments of ancient as well as more recent history can be found in National Park Sutjeska.
