Kozara Mountain is located in the northwestern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It stretches in the direction of the northwest - southeast, in the length of about 70 and in the widths of 20 to 30 kilometers.
It is a low, islet mountain situated between the Pannonian plain in the north and the other Dinaric mountains in the south, bordered by the Sava river in the north, Una in the west, Sana and Gomjenica in the south and Vrbas in the east.
It is located in the area of the municipalities: Novi Grad, Kostajnica, Kozarska Dubica, Gradiška, Laktaši, Banja Luka and Prijedor. Although the height of its peaks does not exceed 1000 meters above sea level, Kozara dominates this part of Bosnia with its height and spaciousness. It is known among the people as a "Krajina beauty" thanks to its thick complexes of deciduous and coniferous forests, clearings/glades, clear streams and the richness of flora and fauna. In order to preserve and protect cultural-historical and natural values, the central part of the Kozare Mountains, which surface is 3,494.5 ha, was declared a national park in 1967.
In the central part of Kozara National Park dominates the plateau of Mrakovica (806 m above sea level) where, due to its urban facilities, cultural events are often held and it gathers a large number of visitors to the National Park Kozara. Kozara is a kind of air spa, unique in the speed of regeneration of red blood cells. The mountain allows you to engage in various activities, among others, mountaineering, cycling, sports climbing, skiing, etc.
