Capital: Sarajevo


Bosnia is bordered by the Adriatic Sea and Croatia.


Bosnia has hot summers and chilly winters.  Areas of high elevation have short, cool summers and long, severe winters. Along the coast it has mild, rainy winters.

Winters average a daily high around 3C (37F) and snow tends to linger at higher altitudes. In summer rainfall is slightly heavier but the sunny, 26C (79F) July days are a treat. Springtime (April and May) is the best time to come to get a glimpse of the country's rich flora and fauna, though upland areas may still be under snow.
