In the heart of the Balkans, surrounded by Croatia to the west and north, Serbia to the east and Montenegro to the south, Bosnia and Herzegovina remains largely unknown to the French. Sarajevo, its capital, is famous, however, 1,800 km from Paris. Here, for centuries, part of the history of Europe has been made. A true country of mountains, lakes and rivers, Bosnia and Herzegovina has the wildest nature in Europe. Its fauna and flora are of an unsuspected richness. Wolves and bears are still present. The forest covers half of the territory. A few kilometres from the coasts of Croatia and the Adriatic, you will discover a small country with an exceptional natural and cultural wealth in Europe.
A pleasant climate :
The climate is semi-continental in Central and Eastern Bosnia, but Mediterranean in Herzegovina. Summers are always hot and sunny. In winter, the country is covered with snow on 60% of its territory and it is Christmas every day!
