This mountainous southeast European country is bounded by Croatia on the north and west, by Serbia on the east, and by Montenegro on the southeast.
With only 20 km/12 mi of coastline on the Adriatic Sea, it has weather more typical of inland eastern Europe, with cold winters and warm summers.
Summer is the wettest season. Much of the country is mountainous or hilly, rising to a height of 2,386 m/7,828 ft, and winter snow lies for long periods in the higher regions.
The table for Sarajevo is typical of conditions in the more mountainous parts of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
