Map of Bosnia and Herzegovina

The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina is Sarajevo, which is also the largest city of the country. Flight to Bosnia and Herzegovina usually go to Sarajevo. The region belonged formerly to Yugoslavia and had been largely destroyed in the war in the nineties. Bosnia and Herzegovina is slowly recovering from the damages of that war.
The official languages of Bosnia and Herzegovina are Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian. Bosnian and Croatian are spelled in Latin script, Serbian in Cyrillic script. In our map of the world there was not much space for this quite small country, so that only the name of the city of Sarajavo appears there.
Tourism has no major importance in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in contrast to Slovenia of the coastlands of Croatia (Damlmatia). The remains of the war will still be visible for a long time in many parts of the country. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This is our Map of the World with original scripts (original size 70 x 100 cm), from which the detailed map shown above has been cut out. The numbers of city inhabitants and vegetational zones were researched by hand for every country, by using the sources listed below. This procedure prevented the map from containing traditional errors provoked by simply copying such information from previous maps.

The map can be ordered for 11.50 Euros (+ postage and packing) at www.wissenladen.de.

 

Sources on which the information contained in this map is based:

 

The vegetational base map was aligned with satellite pictures from Google Earth.

The official names of the countries are quite well researched at www.geonames.de.

Also here you can find information on the geography of many countries: www.geographixx.de.

The numbers of inhabitants of the cities were taken from www.citypopulation.de.

And the mountain peak altitudes were largely derived form www.peakbagger.com.
