The present day territory of Bosnia Herzegovina has been inhabited since the Neolith time and has witnessed migrations and mixing of different Indo-European tribes since then, including Illyrians, Celts, Romans, Huns, Avars and Slavs.
Bosnia Herzegovina was part of different kingdoms and federations during long periods of its existence. Significant stages in its history include Medieval Bosnian State (XI-XIV century), Ottoman Era (1463-1878), Austro-Hungarian Era (1878-1918), Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1918-1941), WWII “Independent Croatia” (1941-45), Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (1945-1992) and independent Bosnia Herzegovina (1992-present).
The war lasted from April 1992 until November 1995 and Bosnia Herzegovina received significant post war reconstruction and economic development assistance from the United Nations, the European Union and NATO nations in the years following the war resulting in full resumption of all basic services and bringing the country closer to meeting some of the EU’s pre-accession conditions.

The Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of the two political entities that compose the modern country of Bosnia and Herzegovina (the other entity is the Republika Srpska). The two entities are delineated by the Inter-Entity Boundary Line.
The Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina is primarily inhabited by Bosniaks and Croats, which is why it is informally referred to as the Bosniak-Croat Federation. However, by decision of the Constitutional court in 2001, the Serbs were declared the third constituent ethnic group of the Federation.
The same happened to Bosniaks and Croats in the Republika Srpska. The Federation was created by the Washington accords signed on March 18, 1994, which established a Constituent assembly (Ustavotvorna skupstina/Ustavotvorbeni Sabor). The Constituent assembly continued its work until October 1996.
The Republika Srpska is one of the two BiH entities and it is territorially organized in 63 municipalities. The capital of the Republika Srpska is Banja Luka, which is its administrative, economic and cultural center.
