The country’s name comes from the two regions Bosnia and Herzegovina, which have a very vaguely defined border between them. Bosnia occupies the northern areas which are roughly four fifths of the entire country, while Herzegovina occupies the rest in the south part of the country.

The southern parts of the country have a Mediterranean climate. The Western and the Central parts experience hot and arid summers reaching up to 40 °C while in the winter, temperatures are below freezing with lots of snow. The north-eastern region has a typical continental climate

The best time for sightseeing in Bosnia and Herzgovina should be spring and summer. However skiers won’t agree: best time to ski is between December and February. The climate is Mediterranean with hints of Central European; it’ s hot in summer and cold in winter.
