The Dinaric Alps extend for approximately 645 kilometres (401 mi) along the Western Balkan Peninsula from the Julian Alps to the northwest in Italy, downwards to the Šar and Korab massif, where their direction changes.
The Dinaric Alps are bounded approximately by the Soča (Isonzo) and Sava rivers (north), the Drina River (south), the Kolubara, Ibar, and Sitnica rivers (east), and the Adriatic Sea (west). The Dinaric Alps rise to 8,839 feet (2,694 metres) at Mount Jezercës (Maja e Jezercës) in the North Albanian Alps (Prokletije).
The Dinaric Alps are made up of mountain ranges that spread from the northeastern part of Italy and runs through Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, to the southeastern part of Albania.

The Dinaric Alps are a mountain range in southern and southeastern Europe, separating the continental Balkan Peninsula from the Adriatic Sea. It is one of the most rugged and extremely mountainous areas of Europe.
Dinaric Alps are around 650-700 km (cca 450 mi) long and between 50-200 km wide. The mountain system has a triangular (or kind of elongated trapezoid) shape because it widens as it stretches in SE direction.
