Orthodox Easter Sunday in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Many Orthodox churches base their Easter date on the Julian calendar, which often differs from the Gregorian calendar that is used by many western countries. Therefore the Orthodox Easter period often occurs later than the Easter period that falls around the time of the March equinox.

Orthodox Easter Sunday is a public holiday. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed.
