According to itypeusa, Bosnia and Herzegovina is a small country located in the south-eastern part of Europe, bordered by Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro. It has a population of around 3.5 million people and covers an area of 51,129 square kilometers. The official language is Bosnian although other languages such as Croatian, Serbian and Montenegrin are also spoken. Bosnia and Herzegovina has a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. The country is known for its stunning landscapes ranging from the Dinaric Alps in the north to the subtropical Mediterranean coast in the south. The economy is largely based on tourism, agriculture and industry with tourism being one of the main sources of income for many people. Bosnia and Herzegovina also has a rich cultural heritage due to its diverse population which includes several ethnic groups such as Bosniaks, Serbs, Croats and Bosnian Muslims. The capital city is Sarajevo while other major cities include Banja Luka, Mostar and Tuzla. Bosnia also boasts some of the best trekking routes in Europe such as Sutjeska National Park Trek or Maglic Trek which both offer breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains, lush valleys and crystal-clear rivers along the way. In addition to its natural beauty and rich culture, Bosnia also offers some great opportunities for adventure activities such as rafting on Neretva River or paragliding over Sarajevo Valley. Bosnia and Herzegovina is located in the Central European Time Zone, which is one hour ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+1). It follows the same time as most countries in the European Union, including Germany, France, Italy and Spain. During Daylight Saving Time (DST), clocks are moved forward one hour to UTC+2. DST begins on the last Sunday in March and ends on the last Sunday of October each year. Bosnia and Herzegovina is also part of the Central European Summer Time (CEST) Zone, which is two hours ahead of UTC during DST. Most countries in Europe observe DST from April to October each year, so Bosnia and Herzegovina follows suit. During this time period, it shares its time zone with other countries such as Austria and Hungary. Clocks are moved back one hour to UTC+1 when DST ends in October. In addition to observing Daylight Saving Time along with other parts of Europe, Bosnia and Herzegovina also observes certain holidays with special times or exceptions to its standard time zone. For example, on Easter Monday all clocks are moved forward by one hour for an additional hour of daylight savings time. On Orthodox Christmas Eve (January 6th), all clocks are moved back by two hours so that people can attend church services earlier at night; this is known as “Christmas Miracle” or “Little Christmas” in some parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
