Bosnia & Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina, or just Bosnia, is a country on the Balkan Peninsula with the population of about 3.8 million. Bosnia was first mentioned in the 10th century as "Bosona" by Constantine VII, the Byzantine emperor. After many good and bad things that Bosnia has been through during history,  Bosnia and Herzegovina became an independent country in 1992.  
The capital and the largest city of Bosnia is Sarajevo, sometimes called "European Jerusalem". Bihać is the ninth most populous city in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Thanks to Jasmin for sending me such a great card with many nice stamps. Hvala, Jasmine!
