Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina
In Southern Europe, there lies a heart-shaped country that covers an area about half the size of the state of Kentucky in the United States. Bosnia and Herzegovina is situated along the coastline of the famous Adriatic Sea on the Balkan Peninsula and reigns just south of Croatia, west of Serbia and northwest of Montenegro. If it's not for the Adriatic Sea, the country would have been landlocked which won't be an issue because it will still flourish with beauty. The northern part is blessed with high peaks and green vegetation while the southern area is teeming with farmlands where the Bosnian people get their supply of good produce. Bosnia is a strikingly gorgeous country with all its amazing landscapes, unique cultures and distinct traditions. And because of its inviting climate, more and more tourists from around the globe fly in to have fun and witness its splendor.
