Javor is 1,520 meters high with the highest point called Vasilija’s Peak. Its specific natural characteristics are proven to be beneficial for healing anemia, respiratory diseases, bronchitis, and asthma.

The mountain is also an important historical place since this is where numerous battles occurred during the 1804, 1876-78, and 1912 wars. The old border between Serbia and the Ottoman Empire went through here once.
