In South-Eastern Europe, in the south-western part of the Balkans, in the south-western part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Kupres plateau is comprised of four karst fields: Kupreško Polje, Blagajsko Polje, Ravanjsko Polje and Vukovsko Polje. Each of these fields is like a spacious amphitheater fenced by the mountains.
Malovan Mountain with the peaks of Gol Kos, Sedlo and Veliki Malovan is the south-western border of the Kupres polje. Malovan with 1828 m is one of the highest peaks on the Kupres plateau, while the villages of Gornji and Donji Malovan lie at an average altitude of 1150 m.
For those born on the slopes of this beautiful mountain there is an unmistakable way to identify your Malovan.
