Considerations

Voltage

The voltages found in Bosnia (220V) and Germany (230V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.

Good to know

Frequency of Electrical Current

The frequency found in Bosnia and Germany is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
