Since the end of the Bosnian War in 1995, Bosnia and Herzegovina has taken steps, and made progress in restoring stability and reconstructing infrastructure that was lost. Today Bosnia and Herzegovina is home to diverse cultures, with three dominant ethnic groups: Bosnians, Serbs, and Croats; and three official languages: Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian.
Although the country has one of the fastest developing tourism industries, political protests are known to happen. In February 2014, protests that started over unemployment became violent as cars and government buildings were burned.
Healthcare in Bosnia & Herzegovina
Although life expectancy is high in Bosnia and Herzegovina, most proper modern hospitals and clinics are situated within Sarajevo. Medical facilities and supplies outside of the city are very limited. We encourage expats in the country to obtain a global medical plan that will cover medical treatment outside the nation.
