Bosnia and Herzegovina

This Balkan nation boasts stunning waterfalls and ski resorts, medieval-era bridges — and scars from wars that refuse to heal. It was in capital Sarajevo that Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in 1914, sparking the First World War. Eight decades later, the country found itself in a fresh war as Yugoslavia disintegrated. The country's economy fell by half, and it is still recovering from those economic blows.
