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. People mostly visit Mostar, and the capital Sarajevo itself. Even though Croatia has the majority of the Adriatic Sea (as one state), Bosnia and Herzegovina has a small part of the Adriatic Sea, and that part of the sea divides Croatia into two parts.
