Bosnia and Herzegovina, abbreviated BiH and often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in South and Southeast Europe, located within the Balkans. Bosnia and Herzegovina is not entirely a landlocked country as it may appear on a map – to the south it has a narrow coast on the Adriatic Sea, which is about 20 kilometres long and surrounds the town of Neum. It is bordered by Serbia to the east, Montenegro to the southeast, and Croatia to the north and southwest. Sarajevo is the capital and largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with a population of 275,524 in its administrative limits.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is the participant country in the Defence Education Enhancement Program (DEEP) composed of U.S. and other NATO defence educators.
