Vlašić is a mountain in the very center of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Its peak is called Vlaška Gromila and has an elevation of 1,969 meters above sea level. The mountain is a major center for winter tourism due to its excellent accommodation for skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports. It is also a popular destination for summer and eco tourism with many hiking trails and undisturbed wilderness areas.

During the Bosnian War exchanges of prisoners were conducted across Mt Vlašić. In August 1992 a group of prisoners being transferred to Travnik were murdered in the Korićani Cliffs massacre.

Vlašić is said to be one of the places of origin of the Bosnian mountain dog or Tornjak, bred to guard livestock from wolves and bears.
