Republika Srpska Travel Guide: 556 reviews and 1,523 photos
Republika Srpska is what the Serbian dominated part of Bosnia is called. It was carved out by the Dayton Peace Accords and includes two enclaves in NE and NW Bosnia. It has it's own police force and military that is separate from the rest of Bosnia but uses the same money. It has a different postal system but is on the same electrical grid. Like East Germany and the Turkish Republic of Cyrpus, it is a fraction of the whole and will some day be part of Bosnia (BiH) again. The only way you tell you have left the Federation of Bosnia Hercegovina is that the signs change from a Latin alphabet to the Cyrillic alphabet.
These are some of the graves from the massacre at Srebrinica. Several thousand people were slaughtered here after the city capitulated. Much has been written on the subject but the best I have read yet is a book called "End Game." It tells in detail what happened here.
RS is not nearly as economically developed as BiH nor has the damage from the war been repaired. There is much more apparent damage here than in BiH. BiH has major, major economic issues and RS has even more as it is somewhat of a pariah state in the eyes of investors.
I received this email from a VT member in 2006. Even though it has been over 4 years since I was here I still have the same views. I don't hate Serbs, I don't hate Muslims. I do hate what they did to their own country though.
