Bosnia and Herzegovina lies at the heart of the Balkans. It shares its northern, western and southern borders with the Republic of Croatia and borders Montenegro and Serbia to the east.

With a territory of 51,129 square kilometers, Bosnia and Herzegovina is slightly smaller than Tasmania. Its population of approximately four million is made up of three main ethnic groups – Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs. The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina is Sarajevo.

The country’s name comes from the two regions Bosnia and Herzegovina, which have a very vaguely defined border between them.

Bosnia occupies the northern areas which are roughly four fifths of the entire country, while Herzegovina occupies the rest in the south part of the country.
