The Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina is situated on the Balkan Peninsula in south-eastern Europe in two historic regions – Bosnia, which occupies the valley of the Sava River and its tributaries, and Herzegovina, located in the south, in the basin of the Neretva River. In the north and the west, Bosnia and Herzegovina borders on Croatia, while in the east and south-east, it borders on Serbia and Montenegro. The country has access to the Adriatic Sea. The area of Bosnia and Herzegovina is 51.23 sq km.
Relief. The country is surrounded by a complex system of mountain ranges, ridges, hollows and intermountain valleys. In the extreme north lies a broad base line, which is then replaced by medium mountains, while in the south, there are already chains of big high mountains. The highest summit is Mount Maglik (2,386 m), located in the south-east of the country, on the Yugoslavian border.
Mountains. Practically the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina is covered with medium-high mountains. There are two mountain ranges here, the Dinar Highlands and the Dinar Alps. The Dinar Alps cover the central and the south-western areas.
