The Bosna ( Serbian - Cyrillic Босна ) is a river in Bosnia and Herzegovina and gave the historical region of Bosnia its name. It rises from a karst spring at the foot of the Igman mountain near the capital Sarajevo and flows into the Save at Šamac . The Bosna is 271 kilometers long from the source to the confluence with the Save. This makes it the third longest river in the country.
The Bosna spring ( Vrelo Bosne ) near the Ilidža thermal baths is a well-known attraction, as a relatively large river rises directly from the mountain here and is not created by joining smaller streams. The spring is embedded in a park.
As part of the Neretva- Bosna furrow, the Bosna Valley forms an important international transport corridor, which today is part of the Pan-European Transport Corridor Vc . The main connections from the capital towards Central Europe run here with Magistralstrasse 17 , the Šamac – Sarajevo railway line and the A1 motorway, which is currently under construction .
