About Bosnia

The first inter-ethnic armed clashes had already taken place around Mostar, on February 4th, 1992, and the European recognition of Bosnian independence only made matters worse.

Bosnia became the centre of one of Europe's blackest memories in modern history as Serbs, Croats, and Muslims all fought to expand or keep their territories within Bosnia, and carve out their own states within a state.

By mid-1995, the majority of the country's land area was held by Bosnian ethnic Serbs, who carried out atrocious ethnic cleansing programmes.

Many empty peace agreements were signed, but even the safe havens in Bosnia could not be adequately protected.

After attacks on the Bosnian Serb capital of Pale, the Serbs took revenge by seizing Srebrenica and Zepa, and systematically killing thousands of their citizens.

Only when 37 citizens were killed by a Bosnian Serb mortar shell hitting a crowded Sarajevo market on August 28, 1995, did public opinion finally force the politicians' hand.

NATO justifiably renewed air attacks on Bosnian Serb targets across Bosnia; it sometimes seems that peacekeeping can only be done by force.

An agreement was signed on December 14, 1995 that formally ended the war.

Bosnia Tourism
