This is a collection of pictures from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the result of a trip in 2006 to the Adriatic coast.

If you look up my articles from Bosnia-Herzegovina, you will also find a video, a world heritage site, and a regular travelogue. Before you do, start with these pictures from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This gallery has pictures from the city of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We came here on a day trip while we were vacationing in neighbouring Croatia.

Fast facts

Learn about the country on Wikipedia. Here is an excerpt:

Bosnia and Herzegovina, or Bosnia–Herzegovina and informally Bosnia is a country at the crossroads of south and southeast Europe, located in the Balkans. The capital and largest city is Sarajevo. Bosnia and Herzegovina borders Serbia to the east, Montenegro to the southeast, and Croatia to the north and southwest. It is not entirely landlocked; because in the south it has a narrow coast on the Adriatic Sea within the Mediterranean. This is about 20 kilometres long and surrounds the town of Neum.

Bosnia, which is the inland region of the country, has a moderate continental climate with hot summers and cold, snowy winters. In the central and eastern regions of the country, the geography is mountainous, while in the northwest it is moderately hilly, and in the northeast it is predominantly flat. Herzegovina, which is the smaller, southern region of the country, has a Mediterranean climate and is mostly mountainous.

Bosnia today

Today, the country is home to three main ethnic groups, designated “constituent peoples” in the country’s constitution. The Bosniaks are the largest group of the three, the Serbs are the second-largest, and the Croats are the third-largest. Minorities include Jews, Roma, Albanians, Montenegrins, Ukrainians and also Turks.

Bosnia and Herzegovina has a bicameral legislature and a three-member presidency made up of one member from each of the three major ethnic groups. However, the central government’s power is highly limited. It comprises two autonomous entities – the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republika Srpska. A third unit, the Br?ko District, has its own local government. The Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina furthermore consists of 10 cantons.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a developing country and ranks 73rd in human development. Tourism has increased significantly in recent years.
