Hungary's Topography, Nature & Climate
The characteristic triangular shape of the country has been depicted in the country's flag (made by the EU!). Bosnia-Herzegovina only has a 20 km coastline at the Adriatic Sea around the small city of Neum. Most of the country is covered by hills and mountains, with the 2,386 m high Maglić at the border to Montenegro being the highest mountain of the country. Because of the topographical conditions, arable land is quite limited and its share comparatively small. Herzegovina, i.e. the Southern part of the country, is rather mountainous and wild with jagged and steep mountains and treeless valleys. The green North could be everywhere in Middle Europe. The West, i.e. the Bosnian part of the Krajina, is characterized by karst forms. In the North, the long Sava river marks the Northern border to Slavonia, the Northeastern province of →Croatia. The Sava finally flows into the Danube at →Belgrade, capital of Serbia. Almost all rivers of the country, among them the long river Bosna, are tributaries of the Sava.
Needless to say that high mountains stand for mountainous climate. This means, that summers in Bosnia are long and warm, but winters can be freezing cold, with snow even falling in springtime.
