Nevesinje is in the south of the country. This card, which shows people enjoying themselves outside the Hotel Nevesinje, was posted in October 1940, six months before the war came to what was then Yugoslavia. Throughout the Bosnian war of 1992-95 Nevesinje fell under Serb control and today it is the Republika Srpska, the Serb part of Bosnia. Of a current estimated population of 18,000, some 8,000 are believed to be refugees from elsewhere. The town's economy has not recovered since the end of the war.
