Talking about Bosnia and Herzegovina

The main subject of the class in online English school was the country Bosnia and Herzegovina. Teacher Miroslava told me about the country where she lives.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a small country which was formed on the part of the territory of former Yugoslavia. The capital city, Sarajevo, is a place where the World War started. In fact, Sarajevo has a lot of historical places. Sarajevo is surrounded by mountains, hiking is a very popular sports activity there.

Before the class, I read about Bosnia and Herzegovina on the Internet. Wikipedia described it as the poorest country in Europe. During the class, I had an opportunity to ask the teacher about some economic characteristics of the country. Here they are:
Unemployment - it is a very difficult to find a job there especially in the countryside. Elementary education is free, the cost of high education is very low. The year's tuition of studying in university is about 25 euro. Medicine is not free.

Bosnia and Herzegovina has a very small lot on the Mediterranean Sea. Neum is the only town to be situated along Bosnia and Herzegovina's 20 km (12 mi) of coastline, making it the country's only access to the Adriatic Sea. This place has a very good potential for developing as a beach's place due to the cheapest cost of living. I remembered this fact in the case of the future vacation.

English is not so common language there but it is used widely in touristic places as hotels or so on. Here are some mountains which teacher recommended to see me if I decide to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina:

Bjelašnica is a mountain in central Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is found directly to the southwest of Sarajevo. Bjelašnica's tallest peak, by which the whole mountain group got its name, rises to an elevation of 2067 meters. Jahorina is a mountain in Bosnia and Herzegovina, located near Pale in the Dinaric Alps. Igman is a mountain plateau in central Bosnia and Herzegovina. Wikipedia
