Type: Around Sarajevo
At 1,532 meters above sea level, Bukovik is the highest peak of the mountain, Sarajevo's Ozren, which lies northeast of Sarajevo.
There is a relay station up on Bukovik's summit which offers a spectacular view of Sarajevo and the surrounding mountains and, on a perfectly clear day, the peak of Mount Durmitor in Montenegro can also be seen.
The area around Bukovik is covered by grasslands and conifer and mixed forests; plus, wild game and rare species of birds can be seen. Ideal for walking and hiking, it has recently become popular among those who love mountain biking.
There is a mountain cabin right below the summit where nature lovers can catch their breath and have something to eat.
