Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) is located in Southeast Europe within the Balkans. It borders 3 other European countries. First, Croatia wraps all the way around from the west to the north. Then, Serbia and Montenegro border the east side of the country. Bosnia and Herzegovina is not entirely landlocked because the western tip reaches the Adriatic Sea with about 20 kilometers of coastline at the town of Neum. Also, it’s a relatively newer country and was founded in 1992 (formerly Bosnia). Sarajevo is the capital and largest city of the country.
