Bosnia and Herzegovina

Sarajevo si the capital and the largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Nestled within the greater Sarajevo valley of Bosnia, it is surrounded by the Dinaric Alps and situated along the Miljacka River in the heart of Southeastern Europe and the Balkans.
Due to this long and rich history of religious variety, Sarajevo is often called the "Jerusalem of Europe" or "Jerusalem of the Balkans". It was, until recently in the 20th century, the only major European city to have a mosque, cathedral, orthodox church and synagogue within the same neighborhood.

On the card we can see the Milajcka River and the Natonal and University Library. I'm very thankful to Sabina for sending me this card with two cute stamps. I especially like the one showing funny sheep.
