Bosnia and Herzegovina (officially Bosna i Hercegovina, shortened to BiH, also in English variously written Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Bosnia-Hercegovina) is a mountainous country in the western Balkans.
Its capital is Sarajevo and it was formerly one of the six federal units constituting Yugoslavia.
The republic gained its independence in the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s and due to the Dayton Accords, it is currently administered by a High Representative selected by the UN Security Council.
It is also decentralized and administratively divided into two entities, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republika Srpska.
Bosnia and Herzegovina themselves are historical-geographic regions which today have no political status.
