Sarajevo, the capital and largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Sarajevo is also a metropolis.[1]

This is a list of cities and towns with over 10,000 inhabitants (or lower if the municipality has over 20,000 inhabitants) in Bosnia and Herzegovina. For the full list of populated places, see List of settlements in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Organization[edit]

Apart from entities, cantons and municipalities, Bosnia and Herzegovina also has officially designated cities. Official cities have their own mayor and city council, which is a big difference to the municipalities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which have a municipal council and mayor. Powers of city councils of official cities are between the government of municipalities and governments cantons in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina or a government entity in the Republika Srpska. There are twenty four official cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina (as of 2019):[2]

List[edit]

The list includes only the 56 cities / towns and municipalities whose administrative area has a population greater than 20,000. Istočno Sarajevo, with a population of 61,516 in its administrative area, is not included, since it is a city only in administrative sense and doesn't have a city proper.

"¤" indicates an official city.
