Bosnia and Herzegovina at Eurovision
Bosnia’s Eurovision journey begins in the distant 1993. Their entry “Sva Bol Svjeta” by Fazla managed to score 27 points and finish 16th overall.
However, Bosnia manages to rise like a phoenix in the years to come.Through the years they’ve managed to finish in the top 10 multiple times. Their best scoring entry is their 2006 effort with Hari’s “Lejla“.
Bosnia and Herzegovina’s last Eurovision attempt is probably their most disappointing one. Dalal and Dean featuring Ana Runcer & Jala were the first Bosnian act to fail to qualify for the finals, finishing 11th in the semi final back in 2016.
