Dinaric Mountains

Dinaric Mountains are young, folded mountain chain in the western part of the Balkan Peninsula running from Tolmin area where they border on Alps, running along the Adriatic sea and spanning to the Prokletije in Kosovo and Albania.

Some of the Northern part of Dinaric Mountains is a large and merged area of preserved nature with unique conservation value. Wider area of Snežnik form, together with Gorski Kotar in Croatia, the biggest continuous forest complex in Central Europe. Most of the area is covered by fir-beech forest(Abieti-Fagetum dinaricum) in which four tree species dominate; beech (Fagus sylvatica), fir (Abies alba), spruce (Picea abies) and sycamore maple (Acer pseudoplatanus).
