Bosnia and Herzegovina

This green postcards comes from Bosnia and Herzegovina, showing  Kozara National Park. Kozara National Park was proclaimed a protected national forest in 1967 by Josip Broz Tito. It is situated between the rivers Una, Sava, Sana and Vrbas, in the Republika Srpska entity of BiHA smaller part of the park is designated for nature lovers. Walking, hiking, biking and herb picking are among the many activities in Kozara.
Kozara was also a former battleground during World War II. The Partisans intimate knowledge of Bosnia's rough terrain gave them an advantage over the newly occupying Nazi Germans. In 1972, in memory of all the killed soldiers, a 33 m high Monument was built in the central part of Koraza National Park, together with the Museum and Memorial Wall. Hvala, Jasmine!
