Brcko - Bosnia-Herzegovina

Brcko is a town in northern Bosnia and Herzegovina, administrative seat of the Brcko District and the country's largest port. It lies on the country's border along the Sava river across from Gunja, Croatia. The pedestrian main street, lined with buildings in the traditional architectural style of Austro-Hungary and crossed with Ottoman influences, contrasts with the adjacent streets where the ruins of the recent conflicts live side by side with modern constructions. Brcko was a geographic point of contention in 1996 when the U.S.-led Implementation Forces (IFOR) built Camp McGovern on the outskirts of the city. Camp McGovern was built in the ZOS for the purpose of establishing peacekeeping operations, specifically between Muslims in Gornji Rahic near Brka and Serbs in Brcko.
