Bosnia Herzegovina encompasses two regions: Bosnia in the north and Herzegovina in the south. The country borders Croatia, Serbia, and Montenegro in its position in northwestern Balkan Peninsula, and has a tiny sliver of a southwestern coast along the Adriatic Sea. Topographically, the beautiful and rugged Dinaric Alps dominate much of the territory, climaxing in the 7,828-foot
peak of Maglic on the Montenegro line. That grand summit belongs to the outstanding Sutjeska National Park, a rugged alpine landscape of sawtooth peaks, glacial lakes, waterfalls, and the globally exceptional Perucica old-growth forest. Extensive caverns, springs, and other karst landforms, meanwhile, make for striking scenery in the southern part of the country.
