Two entities, two tourism agencies

As the Federation politically aspires to unite the whole of Bosnia, and abolish the entities, the tourism agency of the Federation gives information about entire BiH, including the RS.
On the other hand; the tourism organisation of the Republika Srpska , the entity which politically strives to uphold the inter-entity borders which were agreed in the 1995 Dayton-agreement, only gives information about Republika Srpska, and no information about the Federation of BiH.

Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosna i Hercegovina, Босна и Херцеговина, usually shortened to BiH) is a European country located on the Balkan peninsula. It was formerly part of Yugoslavia but gained independence in 1992. It borders Croatia to the north, west and southwest, Serbia to the east and Montenegro to the southeast. Mostly mountainous, it has access to a tiny portion of the Adriatic Sea coastline in the south.
