They can be found only on mountain Biokovo and surrounding area. These endemic species are still not well explored so you will have the opportunity to do it by yourself.
In one secluded part of the mountain you can find botanical garden called Kotišina. It is different from the others since the plants are not „brought in“ from differents parts of the mountain. This botanical garden is planned as „walled part of nature“ so the natural vegatation will be preserved by these walls.

A lot of different species, beautiful butterflies, horses, mountain goats, birds and many others will leave you breathless. Some of them you can find in many caves Biokovo has to offer.
