Trebević has long been the main picnic spot for citizens of Sarajevo. Favorable geographical position, altitude, mild climate and natural beauty have been implanted in the hearts of nature lovers since the time of Austro-Hungary, which recognized the potential of the area and began to modify it into a picnic area. The trend of Trebević's development continued until the World War 2, when it stopped abruptly, and continued after 1945, especially after the construction of the Trebević cable car.
Since 1954, Trebević has had a certain character of legal protection in the park-forest category. With the Sarajevo neighborhoods on its slopes, it represents a unique harmony of the urban and the natural. The entire area is characterized by great diversity in biological, pedological and geological terms, but also in other professional disciplines.
