Vocabulary to know for a trip to Bosnia

The Bosnian language is only practiced in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Bosnian is a Slavic language in the same way as Croatian or Serbian, also spoken in the country. They each draw their roots in Serbo-Croat, which no longer exists officially and it is possible, between Serbs, Croats and Bosnians, to understand each other. Young people handle rather well English. Otherwise, the German language can take over, since the country was administered by Austria-Hungary before the 1st World War. Let's learn some survival vocabulary you will use during your trip.
