Bosnia & Herzegovina has a diverse landscape and natural resources, with forests, fertile plains and 23 km of coastline along the Adriatic Sea. The country is known for its abundance of natural resources. These resources include large tracts of arable land, extensive forests, clean water resources and valuable deposits of minerals such as salt, manganese, silver, lead, copper, iron ore, chromium, zinc and bauxite.
Devastated by a war in the early ’90s, the capital is rising from the ashes into a tourist and cultural center it once was. Today, it is once again a vibrant, cosmopolitan mixture of the old and the new, with skyscrapers and modern buildings standing alongside ancient Turkish mosques and marketplaces. The Bosnian people are considered to be very friendly, but you should approach them rather than wait to be approached.
