The oldest of Bosnia & Herzegovina’s national parks, there really is no place like Sutjeska. Established in 1962 around the village of Tjentište, this is 68sq miles of beauty, adventure and history, where nature knows no boundaries and humanity has been pushed to its very limits. The highest peak in the country is found here, the awe-inspiring Maglić, a massif that extends 2,386 metres into the sky before stopping, a mountain that straddles the border with Montenegro. Zelengora might not be as big as Maglić but it might just win out in the beauty stakes, hiding seven magnificent glacial lakes within its plateaus and valleys. It isn’t all about what’s up high either — Perućica is the largest preserved rainforest reserve in Europe, a dense and verdant landscape that is home to a wonderfully diverse collection of flora and fauna. Sutjeska National Park isn’t just about its nature, as immense as it all is. One of the first things you see upon entering the heart of the park is the impactful monument commemorating lives lost in the Battle of Sutjeska. If you are looking for spomeniks, they don’t come much more iconic than this. Those fascinated by the history of Yugoslavia will also be interested to hear that the grave of Nurija Pozderac is found in the park, on the side of the road between the monument and the Maglić. Add this to countless viewpoints, memorials, adventure activities and places to rest your head, and you’re onto a winner, a beautiful, beautiful winner.
