"Lelija is a mountain range within the Sutjeska National Park, Republic of Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Geographically, it is part of the Dinaric Alps of southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, located south of Kalinovik, within the territory of the Republika Srpska. Geologically, the Lelija range is part of the Dinaric Alps and formed largely of secondary and tertiary sedimentary rock, mostly limestone and dolomite. Lelija is bordered by the Jezernica in the north, the Drina in the east, the Neretva in the west and Zelengora range in the south. Notable peaks are Velika Lelija (2032 m.), Todor (1949 m.), and Saikov Vrh (1562 m.)"
