Sutjeska National Park What to visit in Mostar
Towering high above the territory of Sutjeska National Park, Mount Maglic rises to almost 2.400 m at Bosnia and Herzegovina’s border with Montenegro. The country’s highest peak is not the only giant of the national park: in the forest of “Perucica” beech trees reach incredible heights of 60 m and thick emblematic black pines dot the slopes of the park’s rocky terrain.
The mountain peak is accessible through the park and is visited by mountaineers and nature lovers. Most of the routes to the peak require two days of hiking. Mountaineering access to the summit of the Maglić massif is only from the southern side, which has rich vegetation of grass and mountain pine.
Perućica is one of the last remaining primeval forests in Europe. The forest can only be explored in a company of rangers. Whilst wolves, bears and Golden eagles can be seen in Sutjeska.
