Bosnia and Herzegovina has successfully blended cultures from the East and West.  Over the centuries, Byzantine, Roman, Ottoman, and Austro-Hungarian settlements have influenced the architecture, cuisine, languages and religions of the area. These four cultures are now a hybrid that makes up today’s Bosnian culture. With its rich history, Bosnia and Herzegovina offers you the opportunity to rewrite your high school experience amid a diverse mix of culture.

Bosni i Hercegovini (or written BiH for short) is a largely mountainous and forested country.  It’s no wonder that it has been a host for Winter Olympics (1984) and for white water rafting competitions (2009). Bosnia is an emerging tourist destination, and you can be one of the first to blaze the trail to this dynamic country. By living with a host family and attending a local high school, you’ll be able to learn the language and experience life as a regular teenager. This is more than just a year abroad; it’s a chance to step outside of your comfort zone and build your own adventure in a fascinating and little-known destination.
