Neum is the only place in Bosnia and Herzegovina that has access to the sea and geographically divides Croatia. If you drive along the Adriatic coast, e.g. to get to Dubrovnik, you cross a short piece of the territory of Bonsnia-Herzegovina
Neum is an important source of income for the country. The first tourist accommodation was built here as early as the 1950s. Today there are six hotels and many private guest houses in Neum.
