One side of Treskavica is on the Bosnian part of the country, and the other side ascends to Herzegovina. The name of Treskavica derives from the Bosnian word for shaking. Treskavica is located in a zone of strong seismic movements, so regular but small earthquakes are very common, thus its name “Treskavica”.
