Bosnia and Herzegovina travel guide

Heart-Shaped Land
With the legacy of war still fresh on the streets of Bosnia and Herzegovina, this Balkan gem is often overlooked as a holiday destination. Part of the former Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herzegovina endured a bloody and destructive war for independence in the 1990s, which ripped apart its capital and other important cities. Since then, Bosnians have moved on, and as the rest of the world does too, tourism in the country is slowly growing. You’ll be welcomed by locals with open arms, eager to share their country and culture with those who include Bosnia and Herzegovina in their itineraries. Sarajevo and Mostar top most visitors' list of places to visit for their rich history and charming streets. Make sure to indulge in some local specialities such as burek.

The administrative centre is Banja Luka.NameIn Serbo-Croatian, '' means "Serb Republic". The second word is a nominalized adjective derived by adding the suffix to, the root of the noun, meaning Serb. The sequence rather than is a result of voicing assimilation. Although the name is sometimes glossed as Serb Republic or Bosnian Serb Republic, and the government of Republika Srpska uses the semi-Anglicized term Republic of Srpska in English translations of official documents, the Constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina originally written in English as well as western news sources such as the BBC, The New York Times, and The Guardian generally refer to the entity as the Republika Srpska''.In a July 2014 interview for Press, Dragoslav Bokan claimed that he, Goran Marić, and Sonja Karadžić (daughter of Radovan Karadžić) came up with the name Srpska as requested of them by Velibor Ostojić, then-Minister of Information of the entity.
