Thanks to Ivana for adding this peak.

Biokovo is the second-highest mountain range in Croatia, located along the Dalmatian coast of the Adriatic Sea, between the rivers of Cetina and Neretva. Its highest peak is Sveti Jure (Saint George), at 1762 metres. The 196 kmĀ² of its area is protected as a nature park. It is sometimes referenced to as Bijakova, especially among inhabitants of the eastern side of the mountain. When the weather is very clear, from the top of Biokovo it is possible to see Monte Gargano in Italy, which is 252 km away.
