Bosna-Herzegovina, one of the Balkan countries in southeastern Europe, has declared its independence following the partition of Yugoslavia Federation. Historical and cultural ties between Bosnia-Herzegovina and Turkey are actually very strong. In this context, these two countries have signed various cultural and economic cooperation agreements.This study aims at determining the level of understandingand general knowledge of Turkish university students on BosniaHerzegovina. The samples of the study were obtained from students of Atatürk University Faculty of Education, Department of Geography Teaching. A scale consisted of open ended questions in order to determine the level of knowledge of the sample group on Bosnia-Herzegovina. Moreover, the students were asked to point of the place of Bosnia-Herzegovina and its neighbours on an empty world map. By this way we aimed to determine the situation of this country in the mind map of Turkish university students.
