Bosnia and Herzegovina
A country ready for its close-up
In the 1990s, Bosnia & Herzegovina made headlines for all the wrong reasons as a devastating civil war threatened to destroy a once prosperous and beautiful country. Its past is inescapable, but the citizens of this wondrous land are eager to turn the page, inviting the world to experience its natural, cultural, and historic pleasures. A meeting place for East and West, the collision of cultures is evident everywhere you look, with music, cuisine, and architecture taking influence from Europe and Asia. And with its abundance of rushing rivers and rocky mountains, Bosnia & Herzegovina is fast becoming a destination for active adventure-seekers, too.
