Bilogora is one of the lowest but most spacious mountains in Croatia. It consists of a series of hills and mounds that are not too high, the highest peak of Rajčevica is only 309 meters above sea level. But this is exactly what makes it so charming and suitable for a wide range of activities such as cycling, running or horse riding. Its core is crystalline and is covered with sand, marl and flagstone, which in some parts spreads out in wide belts thanks to the drifts of the wind and creates scenes that give the impression of being on desert dunes. The most famous such area on Bilogora is called Đurđevački pijesci.

Bilogora is also home to a number of river springs. The tributaries of the rivers Česma, Glogovnica and Ilova flow from it. It is covered with deciduous forest; in the lower parts you will come across vineyards, orchards and cornfields, and a large part of this mountain is inhabited thanks to its lowland and accessibility. Since it is located in the area between the Drava and the Sava, it was once also called Međurečka gora (the Mountain between the Rivers), but because of the white and gray soil that adorns it thanks to its sands, over time it was simply called Bilogora.

Natura 2000

The biodiversity and beautiful nature of this mountain secured its place in the ecological network of protected areas in the territory of the European Union, Natura 2000, which is also the largest network of its kind in the world. It is a must-visit destination when you find yourself in the Bjelovar-Bilogora County, which is named after it.
