Further towards the south, Ozren is stretching all the way to gorgeous Krivaja river, meeting with afforested Konjuh mountain, while the slopes of Ozren are ending on the lake Modrac towards the east.  The entire area is characterized with spacey glades, rich pastures, thermo-mineral springs, clear mountain streams and rivers curving through the pine and oak forests. The climate is of moderate-continental type, with warm summers and harsh winters.

City of Doboj, is located on the foothills of Ozren at its northern side and stretched along three rivers Usora, Bosna and Spreča. Doboj is representing a railway transport hub with significant importance for the wider region of this part of Europe. Going around Ozren clockwise there are towns of Petrovo (in the Republic of Srpska) and Lukavac, Zavidovići, Maglaj (in the Federation of BIH).

Ozren is one of very few areas with preserved authentic customs, cultural and spiritual heritage and traditional way of life. The oldest monument which symbolize entire Ozren is  the monastery of St. Nikola. This orthodox monastery was built by the Serbian King Dragutin who was ruling this area in the early middle ages. The monastery is situated seven kilometres south from Petrovo, surrounded by pine tree forest in the mountain landscape enriched by beautiful Jadrina river that is passing by. Starting from the March 2003 the Christian orthodox monastery of St. Nikola has been declared as the national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
