  • The Mt. Igman plateau lies 24 km to the southwest of Sarajevo, and there are several settlements that lie at the base of the mountain – Ilidža, Hrasnica, Vojkovići, Hadžići....

    Igman's highest point, Crni Vrh, is 1,510 meters above sea level, but is one of the lowest compared to Sarajevo’s other surrounding mountains.

    Yet, the lowest temperature in the region – an incredible -43oC (-45oC) – was recorded on Igman and it contains an exceptionally high concentration of good air, which is why this mountain is considered a fresh air haven and an ideal place for rest and recreation.

    On clear days, the view from the top offers fantastic views which can even take in Montenegro and the Adriatic Sea!

    During the XIV Winter Olympic Games, Igman, along with Jahorina and Bjelašnica, was one of the main Olympic venues, as this is where the Nordic Ski events were held.

    Today, Igman is one of the most popular excursion destinations around Sarajevo. During spring, summer and autumn it attracts those who love mountaineering and biking, and in winter it is an ideal spot for lovers of winter sports and activities.

    Igman’s Veliko Polje has 30 km of ski lanes for cross-country skiing and biathlon events and the ski area on Malo Polje has a two-seater lift and four baby lifts.
