Located on the Balkan Peninsula, Bosnia was once part of the Communist controlled Yugoslavia consisting of six diverse republics and ethnic groups. In the early 1990s, as Communist governments around the world collapsed, the republics of Yugoslavia began fighting for independence, eventually erupting into civil war.The worst of the violence came in Bosnia, where ethnic Serbs, Bosniaks, and ethnic Croats battled for power. Although extreme violence--including reports of ethnic cleansing--shocked the world, several new nations emerged from the fighting.Today, Bosnia is divided inot two separately governed states. the Bosnian Croats and Bosniaks govern the Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina while the Bosnian Serbs govern the Republic of Srpska.
