Bosnia and Herzegovina, usually shortened BiH, is a country on the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe. It was formerly part of Yugoslavia, but gained independence in 1992. It borders Croatia to the north, west and southwest, Serbia to the east and Montenegro to the southeast. Mostly mountainous, it has access to a tiny portion of the Adriatic Sea coastline in the south.
Sarajevo, a cosmopolitan European city with a unique Eastern twist and is the national capital. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s countryside is home to medieval villages, rivers and lakes, plus the craggy Dinaric Alps. National capital Sarajevo has a well preserved old quarter, Baščaršija, with landmarks like 16th-century Gazi Husrev-bey Mosque. The Ottoman era Latin Bridge is where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, the act that ignited World War I.
Next to Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina was the poorest republic in the old Yugoslav federation. The ethnic war that ravaged the country after Yugoslavia dissolved made its plight even worse. However, the war is over and much of BiH has been rebuilt with assistance from foreign governments and organisations, and the country has become a draw for tourists, mostly from Europe.
Communist era hotels have been rebuild and modernized, while new hotels have been built, either from the ground up or by converting existing structures to hotels. Some hotel options are listed here…
