Boč, also called the Triglav of Slovene Styria ,[1] is a 978-metre-high (3,209 ft)[2] mountain in eastern Slovenia.[1] It belongs to the municipalities of Poljčane (the peak) and Rogaška Slatina (southern slope). Boč, which is among the southernmost extensions of the Karawanks mountain range,[1] is the central mountain of the Boč–Donatus Mountain Landscape Park. It has two peaks, which are five minutes apart.[1] At one peak, there are transmitters (restricted military area). In the other, a 20-metre (66 ft) lookout tower has stood since 1962.[1] The mountain, covered with forest and protected as a natural park, has a number of trails that vary in difficulty level and is also home to the protected Greater Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla grandis).[3] The plant grows in the vicinity of St. Nicholas Church (Parish of Kostrivnica) and the Hut Under Mt. Boč on the southern slope of Boč. A sculpture of the Greater Pasque Flower, work of the sculptor Franc Tobias from Razvanje, has been put on display on a small rise near its growing place.
