The municipality of Srebrenica is situated in the northeastern part of BiH and RS, encompassing an area of 530m2 of mainly mountain terrain. It is located in the mid flow of the Drina river, that runs along the municipality borders in the length of 22 km. Srebrenica also borders with Perućko Lake in the length of 40 km. The urban settlement is situated in the valley of small Križevica river, at the 448 m above the sea level, bounded by the hills of Sušica mountain. The Srebrenica municipality borders with Bratunac, Milići, Vlasenica, Han Pjesak, Rogatica and Višegrad in Bosnia & Herzegovina and with municipality of Bajina Bašta in Srebia.
