Lifestyle

Bosnia & Herzegovina provides the international expatriate a naturally rugged landscape and a religiously pluralistic culture that is unique in Europe. It is a country unsoiled by excessive tourism and free of franchises. It’s people are warm, hospitable and helpful to the expat community. While a large segment of the country is Muslim, its social environment is still very tolerant, free and western. Bosnia & Herzegovina is also a safe environment for families with very little crime. Still, many locals (particularly the older ones) are unable to communicate in English and this may complicate from time to time an expats ability to navigate on the roads and make purchases at retail establishments.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Living in Bosnia & Herzegovina is very good on a budget. According to Xpatulator’s July 2016 analysis, the cost of living in Bosnia & Herzegovina is very low in comparison to international standards. This is evident when one purchases a number of goods and services such as household accommodations, transport, an Internet plan, groceries, restaurant meals and alcohol. The western teaching expat is encouraged to negotiate a compensation package that exceeds the average living costs in this country so that he or she can not only live comfortably but save money as well.
