Bosnia and Herzegovina Geography

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a very hilly country with the Dinaric Alps dominating the landscape.

The highest point, Mt. Maglic, rises to 7,831 ft. (2,387m).

Thick forests cover almost 50% of the land, while in the north, along the Sava River valley, a hilly, fertile plain stretches east to west.

The country has limited access to the Adriatic Sea through a small strip of land (about 12 miles wide) in the far-southwest.

Significant rivers include the Neretua, Sava, Vrbas, and the Bosna - the source of the country's name.
