Bosnia & Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina (informally simply called Bosnia), is located on the Balkan Peninsula, bordering Croatia to the north, west and southwest, Serbia to the east and Montenegro to the southeast. It has access to a tiny portion of the Adriatic Sea coastline in the south.

Culturally, politically, and socially, the country has a rich history, having been first settled by the Slavic peoples that populate the area today from the 6th through to the 9th centuries AD. More than a millennium later, Bosnia became part of Yugoslavia, but gained independence in 1992, along with other Balkan states.

Bosnia and Hercegovina has a population of just under 4 million. Sarajevo, the site of the Winter Olympics in 1984, is the capital and largest city. The country is home to three main ethnic groups or, officially, “constituent peoples”: Bosniaks (primarily Muslim) are the largest group, with Serbs second and Croats third.

The country is mostly mountainous, encompassing the central Dinaric Alps, with the northwest more moderately hilly and northeast predominantly flatland. The highest point of the country is peak Maglić at [x ft/2,386 m] on the Montenegrin border. Much of the country remains forested, and there are a significant number of river systems. The country has 12 mi (20 km) of coastline, located around the town of Neum

Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
