National Park of Sutjeska and Roof of Bosnia

Sutjeska is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's oldest parks. It is famous for the partisan victory over the Germans in WW II and there are large stone monuments commemorating the event. The park itself is 17,500 hectares of magnificent and untouched wilderness.
It hosts one of the last two remaining primeval forests in Europe, called Perucica. Beech trees tower over 60 metres high and endemic black pines stem from the rocky faces that protect the ancient forest. Skakavac Waterfall can be seen from the look-out point - this seventy five meter plus waterfall is dwarfed by the massive blanket of green trees that cover the valley. Sutjeska River has carved a stunning valley through the middle of the park and divides Zelengora Mountain from Maglic and Volujak mountains.
Bosnia and Herzegovina's highest peak, Maglic at over 2,386 m, is located in the park, directly on the border with Montenegro. It presents a challenging climb for even experienced hikers. Zelengora Mountain is great for hiking and walking and there are several newly renovated mountain huts on the mountain. Bear and wolf sightings are common.
