Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country in southeastern Europe. The capital and largest city is Sarajevo.

It is bordered by Croatia to the north and west, Serbia to the east, and Montenegro to the southeast. Although most of the southwestern coastline with the Adriatic Sea is part of Croatia, a small part belongs to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The place where tourists like to go the most is Mostar, where there is a famous bridge. The bridge is curved like an arch and in the past people jumped from the bridge down to the river. It's high up and the water is quite shallow.
