    I thought settling in Sarajevo would be more difficult but with InterNations I quickly connected with other South African and American expats.

Living in Tuzla

Expats will be made to feel welcome in the multicultural city of Tuzla in Bosnia Herzegovina. The third largest city in the country, Tuzla has a population of just over 120,000 and is seen as the chief economic, cultural and tourist center in the region. The name Tuzla comes from the Turkish word tuz which means salt and it refers to the vast deposits of salt underneath the city. The mining of salt and coal has played an important role in the economic prosperity of Tuzla. Expatriates in Tuzla will find that to this day, coal is extensively mined as is salt, although the latter to a lesser extent. The city has three huge lakes which have been developed as tourist attractions, complete with waterfalls and water toboggans. Thousands of tourists flock to these resorts every day in the summer. Expats living in Tuzla can always sign up on InterNations and see if they can pick up any tips about the area, get general advice about life in Bosnia Herzegovina from fellow expat members, or maybe even discover the odd tidbit of information about their new home. Tuzla can, for example, claim the distinction of having held a world record for couples kissing after 6980 couples kissed for 10 seconds in 2007.

    Being new to Sarajevo wasn´t easy in the beginning. But when a friend invited me to InterNations I met really great international people.
